Welcome to our fortnightly outdoor play link-up!
Our first link-up for 2013! Happy New Year everyone!!
Now down here in Australia, we are currently on our annual leave holiday break. Thank goodness for that as the mercury is set to top 41 degrees celsius here today! Phew! Fortunately, I am able to put this post together in the air-conditioned comfort of home.
During the summer of 2012, several children seized on the concept of turning our cubby house into a fish ‘n’ chip shop. The impetus for this came from a couple of children, but eventually became embedded in the play of all of the children at some point in time. So, to support the children in their play, we added a few props: Signs, blackboards, chalk, noodle containers, tongs, icy-pole sticks… etc.
They got the idea straight away!
I gave them some help writing their menu board, but they determined what would be on sale and how much it would cost.
No food without payment of course!
Sometimes prices must be negotiated for a fair deal.
El fresco dining, with great service!
Such well-mannered waitresses and clients.
My favorite post from last fortnight’s link-up was from:
Julie over at ‘Creative Star Learning’ all about these wonderful willow lattice arches and panels.
