This is the third day of our Fall Invitations to Play series with My Nearest and Dearest, Buggy and Buddy, Play Trains, and Twodaloo. I am loving all of the creative ideas shared by these ladies so far, aren’t you?
Today’s Fall Invitation to Play
Today we’re using the items from our fall play dough to set up an invitation to create with fall materials. This way we save preparation time and get multiple uses out of the same materials while promoting a different set of skills.
- colored paper
- pumpkin seeds
- leaves (Use real if you have them.)
- small twigs
Ways Children Might Use the Materials
Below is a brief list of skills kids might practice using these materials. However, as I watch kids interact with new invitations I am always impressed by their creativity in using materials in ways that I may never have thought of. This kind of free exploration is one of things I enjoy most about invitations to play.
- Fine Motor
- Beginning math concepts like patterning and composing basic shapes
- Oral Language and Story Telling
Now that you’ve seen today’s invitation to play, head on over and see what the other members of the series have planned for you. And don’t forget to look for tomorrow’s new invitation to play!
