I truly hope these blog posts have helped inspire your playtime with your little learner and also helped you see that play doesn’t need to take forever to plan or create!

This month Audrey has still been very much exploring transferring and posting. It is so fascinating watching her play at the moment. I can see a lot of early measurement and scientific exploration happening while she plays!

Last month we added an empty Taco Mix container from Costco to her play space and she’s been using a lot to post toys inside. She puts little wooden people inside, our Grimm’s Pebbles* and these little sensory balls from Kmart. The hole at the top is nice and big making it easy for her to transfer objects in and out of. The plastic container is by far her favourite thing to play with at the moment!

I’ve been wanting to make a coin posting box for Audrey so when one of my beautiful Little Play Club members shared her simple DIY, I was inspired to put one together for Audrey too! I found this box at Kmart and got Kurtis to cut a slit in the top for Audrey to post the coins into.

I wasn’t sure if she was ready for coin posting yet but she did an amazing job. Our little coins are Grapat brand which you can get at The Creative Toy Shop*.

Last but not least, an activity from my Nature Play Pack in the Little Play Club! I set up a little discovery basket for Audrey featuring some natural treasures from our stash. The smaller items I popped in a little sensory bottle and then the others I placed in a shallow basket ready for her to explore.

Audrey especially loved investigating the starfish. We recently went to the aquarium and she loved looking at the starfish suckered up against the glass. I wondered whether she remembered them when we popped the starfish in her basket!
