// SMALL WORLD SHELF // Oh my goodness guys, I'm so excited to share our new small world and loose parts shelf with you! I've had plans to set up a small world area for a while, but I couldn't find shelves that I loved. So when I came across these gorgeous @kmartaus shelves online, I knew they were perfect for what I wanted! Ill be rotating what's on the shelves every so often, but for now there's lots of natural loose parts (shells, stones, pinecones and our branch blocks) plus our @grimmswoodentoys cars, house and friends, our collection of animal figurines for small world play (@oh.ivy and @kmartaus) and our silks for small world play. I can't wait to see how the kids use their new area! #smallworldplay #looseparts #openendedplay

Sorry, Indie....it's made out of felt. We live in a world of lies, kid. And mama's trying to set some boundaries with the treats. 🍩

They've been outside all afternoon playing dragons. When I came out they helped me feed and water goats before carrying firewood. It's been a good day for imaginations! #outsideplay #dragonsarecool #imaginativeplay #imaginationsatwork #farmlife #farmboys #boymom

Today, kindergarten was inspired by Deaf artist Nancy Rourke who uses primary colors and American Sign Language to educate about Deaf culture through her art. We painted the ASL sign for “I love you.” ❤️

Today is National Brew a Potion Day, so Lillian and I made a “fairy witch potion.” Her imagination just amazes me - one minute she’s a pirate mouse going to the moon, and the next she’s a bear leaving a cave to go catch a shark in her mouth or a stegosaurs marching around. She has food toys, but blocks become graham crackers and magnets become cookies. Boxes become cars, suits of armor, boats, caves, robots and more (all at her suggestion, not mine). And she is constantly talking and telling stories. I’m thinking of “brewing” up a little dessert with her later if I’m not too tired. Are you mixing up anything good today? . Check out my stories to see more potion fun!

Pretended Play helps children to understand the world around them. It lets them get the knowledge and understanding about things and relations among people and objects. I like toys developing little ones imagination. This is one of them. #childrensdevelopment#childledlearningthroughplay#woodentoys#toysforchildren#eyfs#eyfsideas#eyfsactivities#nurseryideas#nurseryactivities#toddler#toddlerplay#instamums#instamatki#imaginativeplay#toysets

Small Business Jan Post Challenge - Goals 😃 ... My goals are - ... - to hopefully have a new style of fairy door - a Leila fairy door but with a different type of finish. I don’t know if this one’s going to work out yet as it’s still just an idea atm so we will see - to create more interesting social media content - to get to know more about my customers and what they are looking for 😃 - to find a great Xmas market that I can possibly do over 3-5 days in a row ... Whilst on this subject, I’d love it if you would take a moment to let me know the kinds of things you might like to see on my social media or on the blog on my website.

We have spent a big chunk of this morning playing this game. I am the audience for a variety of my “kids,” each with a different name and personality as they sing and dance on stage. Working on her #triplethreat skills I guess. 😊 Danielle is so much fun! #imaginativeplay #momlife #tgif
