Welcome to week 12, the final week of ‘The 12 Weeks of Winter’. Spring is right around the corner and i’m sure everyone is looking forward to some more reliable sunshine. This weeks activity for ‘Toddler Tuesdays’ is Teddy Bears Picnic.
You will need -
- A blanket to use as your picnic rug.
- Some stuffed toys or dolls to invite to the picnic.
- Some unbreakable cups and plates and children’s tea set would be ideal.
For morning or afternoon tea invite your child to the Teddy Bears Picnic. Have them assist you to gather the items and set them up in the lounge, family room or another area of your home that suits you. Serve up your child’s morning or afternoon tea including a drink and make sure there is a little something for each of the guests. This is an open ended imaginative activity so be fun and creative.
Imaginative play is a very important step in development. Semi structured activities such as this provide a comfortable framework of language your child can use to play. Mealtimes are a regular occurrence so your child should already feel familiar with that process. Adding the teddies and change of setting can encourage development of additional language using describing words and instructional words.
