What’s for Christmas this year? A horse, of course. Made in the great state of Kansas by a kind, weathered grandpa with a fun set up at the local craft fair. No plastic “made in China” horses for me! Imaginary galloping on a speedy Mustang will rise to a new level! I only wish I would have purchased three…
My children love and need imaginary, active play. They enjoy acting out a broad range of entertaining scenarios, many of which create interesting “relationships” between the three of them. A strong focus for my Christmas shopping this year will be props to encourage their imaginations.
Another favorite at our house is building (or, if you’re my one year-old, destruction of said building.) In addition to wild Mustangs, I’ll be on the lookout for some good, old-fashioned building blocks to increase our 50 cent garage sale set.
