Small World Floor Play: Nature and Insects by Fun at Home with Kids
~:: Fun at Home with Kids ::~
Our cherry tree was blooming so beautifully outside (which it does for only about 5 days before all the blooms are gone – tragic!), but it was freezing and stormy out. I wanted us all to be able to enjoy the blooms, so I put together this larger scale small world on our splat mat with things I found in our backyard, some of our shells, and four of our larger figurines.
ABOUT FUN AT HOME WITH KIDS: I am a SAHM mom to two young kids: X (an infant) and S (a preschooler). Before becoming a full-time mom, I was a science teacher and ran my own tutoring business. As a former science teacher, I know how important it is for kids to be able to explore and ask questions about the world around them. I also place a high value on creativity and being able to “think outside the box”. For that reason, I strive to engage my children in open-ended play that encourages exploration and fosters their creativity.
