At this year's Easter egg hunt, T happened to receive 4 little froggies in her Easter eggs. Around that same time, I saw a frog pond scene at Let the children play and another one at Prekinders. Inspired by these, I came up with my own creative scene just for T.
I used her new rainbow silk scarf she also received from the Easter bunny as a table covering to make the scene more irresistable to play with.
I often set things like this up during T's nap time so it's a surprise when she wakes up. Mainly, because I often have a harder time keeping her occupied in the afternoons and it makes things more exciting and new for her.
Since that first day, the frog pond has been both inside and outside, the water has been turned blue with these, rice from her rice box has been thrown into the tub (and also has turned blue), and toys have been added and taken away through out the past 2 weeks.
I think it's about that time for the frog pond to be taken away and replaced with something else just as new and exciting. I just haven't figured what that something else is going to be yet.
