Continuing the theme of fall/autumn activities this week, I thought I’d share the shelf I set up as an invitation to dramatic play as well as reading – on theme. Here’s how I prepared the shelf:
I didn’t have to buy a thing – just went thru my decorations in the attic! I went thru our various shelves of books, and came up with some fabulous options, and put the board books here for easy access. (See below for a listing and links for purchasing.)
In the basket, I placed a bunch of little pumpkins and gourds that I had on hand – I believe I got them at dollar tree and hobby lobby a few years back. The basket was also a hobby lobby find ions ago. (AKA – if it gets torn up, I’m not gonna cry over it!)
So the books – as you can see, a couple of them are Target dollar section books. But here are the links to the others (all affiliate links – thank you for your participation!).
Duck & Goose, Find a Pumpkin – Becca LOVES Duck and Goose books. So much that she’s already excited about writing a letter to Santa Clause to ask for more of them. 🙂
Eating the Alphabet (yes, I consider this a fall/harvest book)
Jack and Jill: A Halloween Nursery Rhyme
She immediately went for the Duck & Goose book, and then slowly got everything else out. She has really enjoyed having these items available for free play/read anytime!
Total Prep Time for Mommy: About ten minutes – because I got distracted while digging through the decor in the attic. 😉
Total Play Time for Becca: She will regularly sit here and spend about 5-10 minutes at a time, if not longer.
