DINOSAUR INVASION!

Little "E" has always liked his Dinosaurs, but this past week or so he has really been back in to them and has asked for them to be got out again. His Pre-school is doing a topic on Dinosaurs this term so I imagine this is what has spurred this latest love for the big beasts!
Last week he took them in to the garden and made walk ways for them with wooden off cuts.

Today, as the weather was  not as dry, he made a home for them indoors. We walked around the playroom together looking for bits to add to the play scene.

Even the little ones joined in!




We made a little camp area and camp fire!


We added a river as well. We thought it might protect the natives from the Dinosaurs! We did add a bridge though so they could go hunting for food.


So much for protecting the natives! This diplodocus (I think) used the bridge to go for a visit!


Hello Neighbours! Thank goodness it was a veggisaurus that came and not a meat eater!


"E" decided to add a waterfall off the edge of the table. Really cool thinking. He ran off to get extra scarfs to make water and used the tree stump as a half way point. Then he found a boat for his cave person and took them for a ride down the rapids!


He even founds bits to make a beach at the bottom. I love how his play just extended n and on. running off to the shelves for more resources to take his play in new directions. This game ended up spreading the length of the playroom!


More scarfs for a river, flowing off along the floor......


Little "R" came to help. She gathered up scarfs and started to lay them out on the floor like she had seen "E" do. He was so sweet and praised her for her efforts. Telling her she was a good girl!


Then she got a bit side tracked and had a game of peek a boo with the river! opps!


It is always so lovely to see where a child's imaginative play takes them. It is so important to give them the time, space and resources to get completely lost and engaged in their game and the freedom to go with the flow!
