Here's how I did it: I used a large box that I cut down to just 6 inches tall. I lined it with a plastic trash bag and poured in potting soil. Next we built a pathway with stones, planted flowers, grass seed (not yet sprouted), added wood stumps and a way we went!
Don't you love the mushroom/fairy furniture? Found it on Amazon on clearance! Score!
Shhh . . . I put a vacated wasp's nest in as a carpet! Ohhh - so fun!
I think is so rich and full of live to provide a dollhouse setting that has flowers and grass growing and elements of nature. We will continue to add to this dollhouse "landscape" until school ends.
Learning links: Next week I will begin telling stories with the little dollhouse people to demonstrate how to spin a story with these props. We will discuss the beginning, middle and end of my stories. I will offer storytelling for the children to do for the class much like a puppet show. Finally, Thursday and Friday I will ask the children to write about it. It is a full vibrant experience to take to paper.
