It is so hot we spend a lot of time playing with water. They have a kiddie pool and we use the sprinkler. They love to pretend so they like to lay towels out and get their beach balls on the deck and pretend they are at the beach. I will hang the hose with the sprinkler up high so they can pretend it is raining, they will bring out their umbrellas.
They love to build tents and "forts" with sheets and pillows. Sometimes they want me to pretend to be a monster they are protecting their fort from. So cute!
We do a lot of learning things, I am teaching them about money a little bit and they are fascinated by the coins and pretending to sell me things. Pretend play is a big thing around here!
I had some old cardboard so the other day I took some colored paper I already had and made a little town with houses and roads. They play with their cars on it. I put a spot for each place we usually go, grocery store, grandpa's house, our house. They love that. I just did it flat like a bird's eye view so it was pretty easy to make.
Not that many places to go around here. They like the little ride they have at the store. There is a nursery here and it is fixed up so nice with goldfish ponds and paths everywhere. We will go there and wander around, watching the fish and I always end up buying some flowers for us to plant together of course. Then after that we of course have to play in the water again to get all the dirt off! :D
