My other all time favourite play items for the 1-5 year olds:
a set of wooden bowls and spoons
lengths of rope
silk and muslin play cloths
wooden swords and shield
our drawer of dress-ups
a wooden marble run
magnetic fishing game
homemade doctors kit
big cardboard boxes to transform
Thunderbird's vintage Tracy island and rockets
Jed's collection of vintage cars and building machinery
Little gardening tools
Most of these things are still going strong. Some don't see as much action these days.
He's five going on eight you know. End of an era.
We're big into games, inventing, building and science gear now....it's another chapter unfolding.
And books, oh, books! We'll have 80+ books out from the library at any one time.
Er, and our own library. Book fiends! I love it.
