Here’s something else we have been spending time doing. It has ben so wet this past week that it has been near impossible to take the kids out to play.
The boys have a new bunk bed in their room. They have been super thrilled about it ad love playing it. We have turned this bunk bed into a whole new world of make believe.
I put a sheet down from one side (the front…the back is against the wall) and we can then pretend that we are in a little house. The kids take turns ringing the door bell and inviting each other in. They set up their tea set and make fairly elaborate imaginary meals..i am invited in for many cups of hot ginger tea that they blow on to cool down before i sip it. Along with that I am served cookies and toast and sometimes imaginary cupcakes that have fancy decorations on top.
The doctor’s set is used extensively too and post the tea i get a complete medical check up. Stethoscope, otoscope, the thermometer and the BP apparatus followed by a couple of “injiccuns” that i am told will not hurt.
Sometimes the bed becomes a large car or bus and at other times all their cars land up on the bed and are taken on wild bumpy rides over pillows and blankets.
We play at this for pretty long and it keeps them busy. And it is amazing how much children like to imagine and how they enjoy it!
