Today we've been play and pretending with a magical fairy forest. We mixed up a batch of no cook play dough (with no added extras) to make some 'snow dough'. At Christmas we picked up some Christmas pasta shapes and have been saving them for a special play activity.
At first The Fairy randomly put the pasta trees in the playdough. Then she carefully re arranged them around the edge of the forest.
Soon The Fairy requested to have some 'people' come to live in the forest. Soon some fairies had moved in and were having lessons and organising parties (I love how real life is reflected in pretend play).
