Delighted to have Unnur from Leikskólinn Stekkjarás guest posting again this week on the topic of loose parts - in this case fish boxes!
The first mission was to go and fill them up with some "goodies" so they could go to the mountain to sell some fruits and vegetables. The drive to the mountain was a bit difficult, with a heavy load, (in the boxes were a pair of sunglasses a shovel and their hats :-))
They decided to go to a car park but the cars had broken down so the question came up what would be easier to push or drag their cars. After they parked the cars they needed to go to a store and do some shopping for pasta, meat and fish, because they wanted to eat healthy.
On the way back from the shopping trip, the sun was trying to shine, so they put on their sun glasses They decided to lay down to sunbathe because that is what mums want there sons to do.
A fun day playing with fishboxes, that came all the way from Grimsby Town to Iceland. No one wanted to use them apart from us. We are so so lucky!!!!"
There were some brilliant outdoor play ideas linked up in the last OPP but my favourite was from Mommy Loves Trees about how outdoor play leads to successful adults - this post struck a chord with me & reinforced my belief in making sure the children in my class get good quality outdoor play experiences.
