Sometimes you just dry up of ideas. Your child happily plays by themselves and you wish to join in or you find they are playing the same things over and over and you wish to extend their play, if they let you.
The time is right you’ve got some time and now your mind is blank. Don’t worry. Here are 3 scenarios to try out with little or low-level preparation needed.
- train tracks + trains + animals = Graham the Gorilla wants to go meet his friend Lucy the Locust. There’s bound to be a problem along the way……..
- train tracks + trains + blocks + animals= Zoo on the move.
- people + food + blocks
What’s your in?
Setting up a scenario close by and speaking your actions will often raise their curiosity. They may come over and join in.
Start with a question to start the conversation
Improvise….laugh and have fun. Allow the situation to unfold without leading it all. Give and take.
