Little “B” found a soft toy bird sitting with his friends in the garden. She carefully picked him up. Gave him a cuddle and listed to his bird song when she pressed his tummy!
I had recently added the wooden bird boxes to the garden fence to see how the children would use them. Little “B” had seen the older children putting the birds to bed and remembered this. She took her little blue tit to one of the bird boxes!
Very soon she was copying what she had seen the older children doing and popping her bird in his nest.
Night night birdy!
- Help little “B” to extend this understanding of where things belong. by including her in tidy up time and showing her different boxes for different toys, simple puzzles with a slot for each each piece, offering items that have 2 parts, such as teapot and lid, tins and pots that open and close.
