We had friends over today to play and eat dinner with us tonight. Four little ones can tear apart a house in no time so I was determined to have them play outside as much as possible. Water play is always a good way to do that. But I thought I would add a few other things to keep the play lasting a bit longer.
I set up this great animal/water play area.
It was a combination of toy animals, reycled carry out food trays, logs and tree cookies! Which all combined turned into over an hour worth of imaginary outdoor play. The big girls had animal races, took them to the pool and had them jumping from cliffs. The two little girls practiced animal noises and finding specific animals.
I have always been a supporter of bringing indoor toys outside and today reminded me just how much fun little ones can have with toys they see everyday just by putting those toys in a new setting.
