Thoughts and ideas about creativity, play and toys.

Pretend Play

That's My Toy - Wednesday, July 12, 2017

As children grow and learn the world of 'make believe' starts to become more and more evident. It is amazing to watch children create their own world with a cardboard box using a simple prop and relying on their imagination. This helps them make sense of their own world and mirror the lessons they have learnt from the relationships children have in their lives. We usually only need provide the necessary encouragement and support, along with the occasional prop/toy to assist in the development of 'make believe' and pretend play.

School Holidays

That's My Toy - Thursday, June 22, 2017

It's almost upon us again-the school holidays. The time just passes so quickly and before we know it we all will be another year older. I love the school holidays-a break to routine and the chance to play and explore new things with our children. It's amazing what a blanket can become, or how a box can represent so many things. I say, make the most of this time, play, explore, dance, create and build many more memories and experiences that live on long after the routines return.

Play

That's My Toy - Saturday, June 17, 2017

Too often we limp our way through the week and arrive at the weekend exhausted and often not wanting to do very much at all. I suggest that we challenge this idea and look for ways to bring the fun and play back into the weekend. The kids are always so excited about having their parents around to play with, yet I wonder if all too often we encourage them to do something quieter so we can rest. 

Although I'm always tired, even exhausted, come the weekend I love being able to spend time with the kids and play their games, in their world and in their time. I encourage all of us to do the same. Let me know how you go...

Ponderings

That's My Toy - Wednesday, June 14, 2017

I love how crazes come and go and the Fidget Spinner is no doubt partly another of these. I remember the yoyo's and slapbands that I had when younger and part of the novelty value of these was the way they helped you focus, even if it was just on a new trick. The Fidget Spinner are a tool that can prove useful to allow people to focus more effectively while learning, and also can help improve coordination. A Fidget Spinner for all-wonder what effect that would have...

Beginnings

That's My Toy - Monday, June 12, 2017

I think that Kids' Toys have always interested me, ever since I was young myself. It's not the licensed, mass produced products I remember, but those that were strong, durable and allowed me to use my imagination. Playing for hours on end with a few toys being used in different ways is where I think my creativity was allowed to blossom. It's part of these memories that allowed me to take the step into sharing the toys I love with other parents, and therefore their children.

As a Blog I don't plan to write too often, but hope to keep you informed of my thinking and ideas relating to Creative Play and the use of Toys.
