Small World Play Down on the Farm
Our Classic Little Landscape set “Down on the Farm” is a divine small world play scene that will inspire children’s imaginative and creative play.
The play scene includes:
- a handmade linen play mat which measures approximately 60x50cms
- Wild Republic® Farm Nature Tube,
- natural pebbles,
- polished stones and a bundle of sticks,
- tree cookies,
- pond and a stream,
- a patch of glorious mud,
- a farmer’s field and bales of hay,
- woolen bushes and a grass paddock.
Our Little Landscapes are open-ended and support children’s learning in so many valuable ways. Children are able to create their own stories or re-enact familiar tales, songs and rhymes.
Each component in this set has been carefully selected; we have spent countless hours researching and sourcing rich and textured elements to support children’s engagement and interest.
This scene could be embellished with elements from your own home, service or garden. Children can add toys from their own collection. You could also consider adding some child-safe potted plants or branches with leaves such as gumtrees. You can add large river stones or garden rocks, bark, fallen leaves, mulch, gum nuts, twigs, branches, wooden blocks, and tree blocks.
Through encouragement and support, children will use their imaginations to extend this scene and enrich their own play. Small world play is a fantastic way to support children’s learning and development across all of the five Learning Outcomes (EYLF). Children learn naturally through self-directed play.
We set the scene, children create the story.
* Little Landscapes contain small loose parts and as such are not suitable for children under 3 years of age.
