Today we decided to play pretend pond.
We grabbed a blue blanket and laid it on the floor. Then I told the girls they had to search the house for anything and everything that they think would live in the pond.
They found lily pads, frogs, a turtle, a crocodile (okay, not a WI pond but it does live in water somewhere!), ducks, snake, lizard (not sure about this one but they refused to let me take it out of the pond. It is a bath toy for us so I think that may have been Avery's confusion) and lots of fish.
Then I gave the girl's their fishing pole and let them go to town!
Okay, back on track.
This activity was super fun because the girls went through their rooms, their farm sets, puppets, stuffed animals and everything else. They discussed where things lived and what they could add to the pond. It was a great activity for both girls to work together on. And of course they begged me to leave it up so they could play in the pond tomorrow too!
Now how can I build a forest in my living room...
