We had some new toys arrive this week to help with imaginative play.
This is a rainbow made of fairy wool, ready for any occasion.
Lots of tufts placed in a basket ready to be used in play. It comes in a big bag so I have kept some aside for some craft projects. Its organic and naturally dyed sheep's wool from http://www.myriadonline.co.uk/index.php
Also we ordered some Eco Tree Blocks.
These are amazing. A variety of natural branch shapes which can be put together cleverly, eg. 4 tiny blocks in a tower is the same height as a tall block.
Big Seed has a bit of trouble initiating play so as we have been off to the park everyday , I made a playground for him. However, after 5 minutes all my ideas had been replaced with his own...just what I like to see.
It kind of looks like an assault course. His green playsilk is the grass, the smallest part of his rainbow stacker is the see-saw, and I got an old 'Mini-eggs' tube we finished yesterday for a tube slide. This is balanced on a toilet roll cylinder with a piece cut out so it doesn't roll off. That's the only thing I added at the end.
My favourite piece is the stepping stone for the yellow fairy to step on and look out of the window - cute!
