Happy New Year to all of my We Play friends. I hope you enjoyed a safe and happy Christmas and New Year surrounded by family and friends.
My We Play story for today was inspired by of all things, our Christmas crackers! For some reason, our crackers contained cheap plastic bugs as part of their loot. I thought they would be going straight into the garbage but Immy had other ideas… cooking up Wombat Stew!
Fortunately our resident wombat loves a bowl of well cooked bugs 🙂 For overseas readers, Wombat Stew is a classic Australian picture book by author Marcia Vaughan. It is an absolutely delightful story and well worth a read.
For regular readers, you might have noticed that Immy is cooking her stew on her new wooden kitchen which was her big Christmas gift from us and her grandparents. We finally retired our DIY cardboard kitchen after 17 months of daily use and purchased this all in one kitchen and cooking centre from Eco Toys (I was lucky to see it on sale not long before Christmas). Immy adores her new kitchen as we knew she would.
Now it is your turn, what have you been playing over the holidays? Have Christmas gifts or holiday adventures inspired your play this week?
