We Play with shells and stones


I realised that all the We Play posts I wrote about contain structured play. No, don't worry we are not that boring :) We also enjoy silly games and imaginative games.
Last weekend I was changing the sheets and the little ones made a mountain of cushions and pillows and we had great fun jumping on them.
This week Christie at Childhood 101 wrote about how her daughter enjoys playing with gemstones and shells.
Defne also shows great interest in playing with such things.
She likes combining them with other little figures and likes imaginative play.
On one of our trips to Ikea, she wanted a bag of decorative stones. She loves playing with these,too. One thing that she really likes to do is putting them in a little wooden box, fill it up with stones and pretend that it is her little laptop. She pretends that she writes somehing with the keyboard and giggles at the noise that is created by tapping the stones, just like mummy or daddy writing something on the computer!
