Sometimes it amazes me how few toys children need to play. Imagination always helps!
I heard giggles and silly voices outside the window a few weeks ago and crept out to snap a few pics, without disturbing play.
Boma was taking orders for rock deliveries. Daisy and Rose were building communities from the rocks and other found materials.
Daisy had established a TV room. Her people were sitting on a couch (leaf) and watching TV.
It looks like a cozy, social entertaining space.
Rose had also created a living room and her people were “chatting”.
Whenever the girls wanted to build a new room or make a path, they put in a rock order with Boma.
Boma, in a very convincing, official voice, announced delivery and arrived with the dump truck full of rocks.
This focused play continued for nearly 40 minutes.
Apparently all you need are:
- A Dump truck (I like this one)
- People (the ones the kids used were old counters from a game; theses are my current favourite)
Happy rock playing!
