I have been racking my brains for history related activities to do with Sprog and whilst I may have a lot of ideas (I am a History Teacher!) none were really appropriate for someone who cannot yet grasp the concept of time.
On Friday, Nanny and Sprog had a great time exploring some shells that they’d collected off the beach a few weeks ago (by which I definitely don’t mean that they took them home from the beach, apparently that’s totally not allowed!). They’d been talking all about the different types of shell and how they had become that shape and what they were used for.
So today, we managed to squeeze in a bit of spontaneous play which I’m classing as “history” based because I introduced some new dinosaurs for first time.
We have some amazing leaves in the garden at the moment after hubby trimmed the trees back.
This just serves as an example of what amazing play and discovery can come of experimenting and free play. But also a reminder that whilst you might be desperate for your little person to get on and start doing things, give them space and they will get there eventually.
We pulled the dinosaurs out of the bag and off we went playing about 10 rounds of hide and seek around the garden…dinosaurs are a perfect leaf colour and really difficult to find! Oops, nasty Mama!
