On Small World Day, Helen and Margo created landscapes for jungle animals with colored rice felt trees and rocks. This day was a big hit. A four and two year old were entertained for several hours building their worlds.
Margo (2) loved mixing her colored rice and burying her animals in it. Helen (4), on the other hand, didn’t want her rice to touch and was very meticulous about placement of her “story”.
This was a very inexpensive and creative playtime. A couple of bags of rice, stones, sticks, wood blocks and felt.
