Does anybody else feel like January is lasting forever?
Every rainy day that we are stuck indoors Esther and William stand at the window longing to be let out. It is their new favourite thing to do and they shout out loud all the things that they see … ‘car!’ ‘man!’ ‘tree!’ ‘bird!’ . They also shout ‘Hello’ to all the people who walk past and are quite put out if they do not reply.
Esther and William are still a little young for imaginative play but if they were just a year or so older I would definitely buy them a Create-a-World from WhiteStep to help us pass the hours on a gloomy January day.
This giant fuzzy felt-esque playmat can be used to create different worlds and is a wonderful way to engage and excite children while developing their imagination and storytelling skills.
Create-a-World is made from high-quality felt. It includes 90 colourful, handmade, easy to stick and remove, playing pieces: animals, vehicles, fairy-tale characters, and many more.
Create-a-World can be hung on a wall or spread on the ground or a low table making it a great toy to take on holiday or to Grandma’s house. It is a way of playing creatively and making a masterpiece without also making a mess!
Create-a-World enables every child to express themselves by creating their own unique world. It fosters language development by making it easy for children to express their thoughts and act out stories.
As a Mummy of twins I can see that this toy would be perfect to encourage my little ones to play together and create worlds together. It would encourage them to share and cooperate, collaborate through creative play.
This is a great toy that can be used by all the family. I also think that it would make a great literacy resource in the primary classroom.
What do you think? Would you like one of these? Can you imagine creating worlds with your little ones on these dull, dark winter days?
I am thrilled to be able to offer you the chance to win a Create-a-World for the little storyteller/s in your life.
