Ten Small World Play Scenes (Tuesday Tutorials)

Summer's coming and it's time for us to dust off the Step2 water table in order to create some fun small world play scenes. I love using my imagination to come up with scenes that The Boy would really like to play with.

10 Small World Play Scenes

  • This Earth sensory play combines a variety of different land and water types to demonstrate the different areas of the planet we live on; sea, lakes, desserts and lush grasslands. It's great to see children learning about the different habitats for different animals.
  • This Ocean World small world gets a gold star from me this week for the wonderful combination of science, exploration and play. I love the tactile aspects and the bright accessories.
  • Back on land this Forest Small World uses a wonderful collection of playdough, animal toys and items scavenged from nature to make it even more authentic.
  • Enjoying nature in small world scenes even more is this camping small world. How cute is the fire and marshmallows? Another absolutely gorgeous real-life scene to reenact comes from this Farm Small World even with real food for the animals.
  • I'm a huge fan of our Step2 water table which is currently being used a garden centre! However, I've often dressed it up in the past as both a building site small world and a beach and lagoon small world.
  • I've recently discovered that small world play can go really small with the use of eggboxes, how cute if this Miffy small world eggbox?
  • Star Wars seems to be really popular at the moment and I love this Star Wars moon dough small world scene, moon dough is so much more appropriate for sci-fi anyway!

The Tuesday Tutorials Pin Party Guidelines:

  • Use the linky below to add the URL of your Pin or blog post. This will then be added to our Pintorials Pinterest Board. It must be an instruction post of some kind, e.g. crafts, recipes or learning through play opportunities. It can be old or new, and you can add more than one per linky but please don't repeatedly add the same thing week after week.
  • By linking up your post, you agree to us using at least one picture if your post is featured in a round-up. Therefore please make your images 'pinnable', or it possible to right-click and save.
  • Follow the Pintorials Pinterest Board. If you’d like to follow the four hosts too that would be appreciated; ET Speaks From Home, Hodge Podge Craft, Crafts On Sea and TheBoyandMe.
  • Visit at least 3 of the sites pinned below and pin them to one of your boards. If you’d like to say you’re visiting from #Pintorials (or Tweet about the linky) that would be marvellous. Of course you can pin more than that if you want!
  • Please either use the badge below, or give a textlink back as it helps to spread the word about the great range of ideas (and yes, it can be no-follow, I'm not precious!).

I can't wait to see all the creativity from everyone this week, please add your ideas below!
