Farm Animal Play

It is that time of year again when we think about farming.

The crops are in the field, farmers’ markets are frequent and we are starting to enjoy eating from our garden.

Our Fold & Go Barn is a favourite toy and is easy to tote along to activities or a day out.

The animals can be stored inside but we have quite a collection now and they have a separate home in a tub.

I threw in a tub of Skinny Sticks too. My theory was the girls would use them as fencing. It didn`t really happen.

I penned in the donkey as so:

They ignored me and organized the animals into groups.

The different sections of the barn were perfect for this activity.

They also re-enacted scenes from favourite TV shows and books.

Just goes to prove, yet again, how I play with toys is very different from the way the girls engage with an activity.

I can predict how children will interpret a play invitation, but I am often wrong!
