We are fortunate to have a wonderful babysitter who loves to play and create with Immy. Recently I came home to discover that they had created a family of wooden peg people, dressing them in costumes made from coloured electrical tape, ‘fabric’ made from paper towel on which they had drawn patterns with felt tipped pens, and pipe cleaners – all things routinely found in our art space. Beds were made from a box and container lid and a (rather large) TV from a small box! The family enjoy dancing (a lot!), skiing and *ahem* watching TV 🙂 Involving a child in making simple play resources is a wonderful way of engaging them in creating more detailed play scenarios.
