With Dad 101 on holidays for the past two weeks, we decided to have a major clean up/sort through/throw out around our home. Immy has spent the time when we are busy either helping out or playing close by. In the course of my sorting and culling, I came across some sheets of stickers from my scrapbooking days (I haven’t scrapbooked for probably about eight years now). So when Immy next needed some playful intervention I pulled the stickers out and suggested we make a picture of a city.
I quickly drew a road on a large sheet of paper and then added various details as Immy and I discussed what we could include in the space – a park, some city buildings, homes, shopping centre and beach. I gave Immy the vehicle stickers to begin with and then added the various other stickers over the course of the morning – little sets of flowers, insects, boats, camping goods, animals and people. She played with this scene, coming back to add to it, on and off all day long. In fact, I took the photo before it was complete and as I look at it now, there was actually a whole lot more added before it was declared ready to be hung up. And then she came back the following day to keep working on it, adding more sticker of her own 🙂
Thank you to everyone who played along with us last week. I chose my favourite post as I love how all of the ideas contain within it are actually very simple but when they are all wrapped up together into a playful afternoon, it just looks like so much fun.
What learning wrapped up as fun has been happening in your playspace this week?
