Boy goes to nursery after toddler group on a Monday and so Girl and I have some one-to-one which is really nice. We brought home some of the herb play dough that we made for toddlers and went outside to play with it this afternoon.
You can see the deep concentration on her face! She played for a good 45 mins and we only had to stop because I needed to begin getting the tea ready. So annoying when daily life interrupts play!
It's a great opportunity to talk and interact when children are playing like this. We talked about all the different shaped cutters we were using and also the birds and insects we could see and hear in the garden. There is so much more to play than just play, if that makes sense. Children are taking everything in, even if they don't show it.
