The Gallery: Playtime



The theme for the Sticky Fingers Gallery this week is playtime. Tara has joined forces with Cathy at Nurturestore for her Play Academy, making learning fun.


Presley and Cash play together all the time now. They play imaginatively, mostly copying mine and Andy's daily activities.

Here they are 'working for money' as they know this is what Daddy does Monday to Friday.


If Andy pops out of his office for a cup of tea they tell him to get back to work!

They spend hours with Tupperware tubs and wooden spoons, pretending to cook. They go shopping with a toy trolley and pushchair. I hear them copy my exclamations. The other day Presley said 'it's pouring with rain we need to put our coats on then we put the shopping in the car'.  They brum their cars to grandma and grandad's and park on the bumb (the kerb).

If we're in the garden, they love to help. They will happily collect leaves and sticks to put in the brown bin. Most of the time though, you can find them in the greenhouse.

  7. Look at them! Mine are just fight, fight, bicker at the moment, so I'm longing for that day.... Do you want to send them up here so they can set a good example?!

  11. Isn't it amazing how 'play' has become such a big business but as for as the children are concerned, it is doing 'life'!
