After spending a good portion of our weekend out in the garden planting flowers and vegetables, I thought it would be nice to set up some play that linked to that. We were given this little @Lego Duplo garden set as a gift and haven't really used it to its full potential before. It has all the elements needed for growing (I'm missing the sunshine piece and the rain and a few other vegetables!) so can really be used nicely as an educational play tool. While the little one was napping, I had my 4 year old this set up in the play room with me. We talked about what we were doing in the garden. He is a little expert about all things 'growing' because they have been covering it the past month at school. When my toddler woke up and saw the 'garden' we created, he ran to the back door wanting his shovel. Once he had that in hand, he playfully scooped up the lego piles of dirt and vegetables and loaded them into a little wheelbarrow and fed the lego people. He is really starting to get into his role playing and pretend playing, which is great for both myself and his brother! Maybe I will start getting a little break every now and again!
