Today at Pop-up Play we had a group of Prep-3 students from the school and the Sea Lake Pre School children. So we had lots of new people to play with. We talked about strategies for making new friends like: Asking them their names, telling them our names and asking if they wanted to play with us. These strategies worked really well and the children play together beautifully.
At Pop-up Adventure play the boys used tyres, a pallet and PVC Pipes to make a vehicle. During the day the vehicles role and name changed. It started as an army tank and ended up as a truck as it filled a role in the various games. What was very exciting was that this vehicle could move – although it did take a lot of effort! The children soon worked out how many people could be on the vehicle before it wouldn’t move.
The friendship between the two Lily’s (Lilly and Lily) was very special. The girls bonded over their shared name and spent all session playing together. In this photo they made a ladybird from a box.
These boys built and amazing fort with a box wall. It was used for a prop in a game of goodies and baddies – complete with PVC pipe guns and shields. The nature of the game meant the fort was completely destroyed by lunchtime!
The girls made a house – complete with furniture. Amelia join the game and became their dog.
The group packed up really well and it took no time at all. So we had a giant game of Duck, Duck, Goose. Thank you to all our visitors. We had a really fun day playing.
