Jamie’s castle-monster…!

A bit of a splurge on some semi-educational toys, games and books.

The main thing was a wooden castle, with some wooden figures. The idea with this is to try and get the boys to share and play together more, as it sometimes just descends into bickering and squabbles. There’s enough space around it and they’ve already had fun playing some games, likeĀ Jamie’s ‘castle monster’! This basically involved the castle eating all the fruit and toys till it was full up!

There was also some wooden fruit, which are split into sections with Velcro pads holding the sections together. This can be usd for teaching fractions, colours, shapes, food, cooking and imagination. There’s also hand-eye co-ordination with the cutting and putting back together.

Finally, some science and things to do type books which will give us some creative ideas. There were also some Grimm fairy tales and the Just So stories.
