When children are given the time and space to play with a wide array of open-ended and natural materials magic happens.
We gathered our resources. Nothing fancy. Nothing new. A mix of natural and man made open ended materials that the children could use as they pleased:
- old gardening pots
- scraps of material of different lengths
- pine cones
- fake flowers
- small china dishes and bowls (from the $2 shop)
- garden lanterns
- a carving of an indian goddess
- a big tub of sand
- a couple of stumps, small logs and stepping stones
- a couple of tyres
- stones and pepples
- small coloured tiles
What about you? Have you created a garden for fairies?
