Rock Play with a dump tuck and people

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:

  • Rocks
  • A Dump truck (I like this one)
  • People (the ones the kids used were old counters from a game; theses are my current favourite)
  • Leaves

Happy rock playing!
