building the great transport infrastructure
road making essentially
just what you have got to have when your
Daddy works for a transport company
front & back strips
one a road colour & the other heavy traffic
sewn together length-ways
zebra crossing b&w striped fabric
binding on the ends
then some quick hand stitching
in a chunky pearle thread to mark the divided lanes
ready for play time
assemble in what ever format you wish
easy to roll up to take somewhere
or do what Oscar does with them & spend time in the kitchen
threading them through the drawer handles!!?
here's some more infrastructure at the ready
when you have roads you need city blocks hey!
these are mini play mats
to be played with however which ever way the heart desires
scraps in some kind of patchwork wonder of log cabin
cute backing fabrics
then add binding ...
pretend you have a birds eye view
or use them to play with the animals
or whatever suits ... etc
with the aim to encourage play within that space to
create a focus & therefore room to imagine
its very Montessori really... with a burst of colour added
they're each made using 2 fat quarters ...
front & back
basically they are a whole cloth mini quilt
easy ... just make great fabric choices!
or better yet involved your child in these choices
so there is a sense of ownership!
