my first story box

11 06 2011

A recent trip to Poundland in search of coloured play sand led me to their toy section. I’m not that keen on poundshops other than for chocolate you can buy in bulk but found a selection of 3D colour and play scenes. Ideal for story boxes which I’ve so far not got round to making as I can’t face finding somewhere to store them. These scenes can be stored flat so are a brilliant find. We coloured ours in and got out our Elmer and Wilbur bath toys and read the story. Another activity that engaged a 3 year old for about half an hour as it included colouring in, listening to the story and then reenacting it with real characters. I think we’ll be reusing the scene for a other stories but for the moment we’re sticking with Elmer and his cousin.
