Open Ended Outdoor Play Setups
Natural and simple play space setups are always the most fun.
We do outdoor pretend kitchen quite a lot, they are always a hit. I have an outdoor herb smasher to smash leaves and make our aroma tea for the big royal tea party, muffin pans and big bowls to make soups and muffins from sand, stones, leaves and sometimes we brew like the witches or simply just a water jar and a tea set and the afternoons are perfect.
