Whilst out and about on our adventures we found the most beautifully coloured pile of enormous leaves and a mound of mud (which we love). The hunt was on to find the perfect stick which we soon located and then the potion making was on, a few leaves here and few leaves there, a sprinkle of mud and some magic words, a good stir up with the best stick in the wood and cazam a crocodile appeared with no less than 66 teeth!
This kind of freedom allows Children to explore and discover. It harnesses their creativity and imagination. You never know how the play will start, develop and end and each time you revisit a pile of leaves the opportunities for story telling are endless.
