Bear Caves – Small World Play

Small world play occurs when children use miniature items such as toys, found objects, or replicas to act out scenes or ideas from real life, stories, or books.



Small worlds often include sensory elements which add even more depth to the experience and create more opportunities for language stimulation.



For this activity, we boxes, and then used these boxes to act out all that we have been learning about brown bears!



Each cave came with a several toy bears, and was decorated with wood chips and green rice to represent grass.



This activity was open-ended, which means that your little ones were given the freedom to explore and create their own experience.
