Pretend Play Town | Our Neighborhood

The theme for this weekend was pretend play town. The idea was inspired by Filthy Wizard & Picklebums.

This activity takes a little bit of planning. First, we drew the concept on paper, then we created the outline on the floor with chalk and finally we stuck the tape over it. A & a participated whole-heatedly deciding what structures should appear where. The helped lay the tracks for the train and also stuck trees around the neighborhood.

After the town was made, they pulled out building blocks and made an arch, added a see-saw in the garden, made a train and drove cars all around their new town. We discussed which route goes from the house to the garden and from the house to different places, and also discussed about the right direction for cars to travel and go around the town circle.

It’s their favorite spot in the house for now.
