We Play: Paper Roads
Ohhh I am so excited to be linking up with this clever and inspirational Mum over at Childhood 101.
I love getting idea's and inspriation and when it comes to play idea's for my kids, the more idea's the better.
Well today, I thought I would share a little game we play here in MiraNarnie-Land. It's the game of the The Paper Road. My son asked to make a "new one" as his current paper road was getting a bit worn and weathered....
And here is all you need (because the best play ideas don't cost a fortune!)
- long piece of brown packing paper (I picked a large roll last year from Officeworks and it's still going!)
- Coloured texta's or crayons etc
- matchbox cars or other small toys
Lay some paper out on a hard surface - like floorboards and begin to draw some roads. Fill in details like traffic lights, roundabouts, street signs, shops, train tracks and car parks. Decorate as you wish basically! My son basically chose what he wanted me to draw - he then added some others and coloured in signs and lights.
You could also draw heaps of other scenes - playground, farm, picnic scene, forest, racing car track, fairy garden etc - the limit is your imagination. Speaking of which - fill your imagination up to the brim here!
