This was our very first small world play (throwback) we did and my baby totally fell in love with it.
As he played I tried narrating a story to make it more fun. From his play I made a story where the dinosaur’s aim is to destroy the water beads and get hold of one single water bead. As the dinosaur tries reaching out to the water bead it gets caught in the net and then it struggles its way out – and finally gets hold of one water bead.
What I loved about this small world play is :
- lots of imagination involved
- attention / focus improves
- communication development / vocabulary development
- motor skills
- problem solving skills
- encourages independent play
