One of the most amazing things I find about children is their innate ability to play.
They don’t necessarily need a lot of sophisticated toys. Children can turn pretty much anything into a toy or create a whole play scenario from just one or two simple items.
So this month, I observed and collected some evidence of play scenarios created by me and my little man with just a couple of basic household items.
Simple Water Play
With just a few plastic containers filled with some water, my little one was fully engrossed in scooping, pouring and watching the water stream and trickle out from one container to another
Magic Cubby House
An ordinary picnic blanket draped over some furniture can magically transform ordinary items into an instant cubby house for little people to crawl under and be in their own little world
An old pot and a basic utensil can transform any kid into an instant chef – Lego blocks and little knick-knacks become yummy stews, casseroles and a myriad of other dishes
Just mummy and me
And even with nothing else but just mummy and me, we can have the best time in the whole wide world just singing and talking and laughing and just being silly together
