Barnyard Herds

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.


This kind of play often includes sensory elements which add depth to the experience and creates opportunities for language stimulation.


For this activity, we used the barnyard environment to inspire such language. Because this week involved words related to farm animals, this form of symbolic play enabled your little one to test out new words we learned, such as “trough”, “coop”, and “foal”.
