Setting up Play Stations is a great way to foster children’s discovery of their world. You can observe all the little roles they play, languages they use and their independence while enhancing their skills – fine and gross motor, thinking processes, self awareness just to name a few.
This Play Station from today was a quick put together – a tea party outside the circus tent.
Another Play Station – incorporates the couch and other furniture to put a spin on the experience as well as use a range of toys. My little charges and I once packed a carry bag with cars, plastic forks and a packet of dominoes – it was an interesting day at the park.
My favourite Play Station is with cars and garages – don’t forget like I do sometimes it is for the kidlets as well.
It doesn’t matter where you are during your day as Play Stations can be set up anywhere. All you need is to take an activity with you. I take some sandpit toys with me and my little charges to a certain park down the road from the house.
Happy Play Stationing!
