There were impromptu morning teas and lunches on the mats in the sun as the group decided how they wanted to proceed with their shop play…..meal times don't always need structure and routine or even a set time!
There were activities to extend upon the current interest in tools and fixing things…..
And playdough Birthday cakes to be made with straw candles and then served on special red paper plates …I think the twins upcoming 4th Birthday might have prompted this particular play 😉
And best of all it even kept the toddlers busy for a whole morning!
Sores were washed with cotton balls and medicine was given by syringe….
There was lots of opportunity to talk about the role of vets in our community, the animals being fixed and the noises they make, the injuries and illnesses, what the animals need to eat to feel better and lots of team work and role play to explore.
