Evie is very good about playing independently and with other kids. Sometimes she has a short attention span, other times she will play for an hour or more with one thing. I really love this age with how much she is into discovering and playing.
We love hearing her little voice as she babbles away when playing with things like her Fisher Price toys. It seems she is already very into imaginative play.
After seeing her play so well with play kitchens when we have visited different places, and friend’s homes that have a little play kitchen we decided to try and find one used. We knew we wanted a certain style and thankfully a friend of ours found a great one on Craigslist that was still available. I picked it up yesterday and as soon as we brought it in the door the first thing she said was “Oooooo!” and she went right to it and started playing.
Another friend of mine gave me the wonderful idea to get brown paper and cover our table or coffe table with the brown paper and just let Evie colour. So that is exactly what I did. Last night after she went to bed I covered our coffee table with paper and taped it down so it would not pull up easily. This morning she had fun colouring all over the place. It is something we are definitely going to continue to do.
What sorts of play things did your kids enjoy around this age? Did they seem to have a favourite thing to do?
