Play Changes from Day to Day

The children have been asking where the bugs are so I set up this play invitation and included bugs.
 It was fun to watch their interactions, how they played with each piece.
What interested some children and not others.
 There's something about the world in miniature that intrigues some children (and adults too, my husband loves model railways).

 One at a time she carefully covers the tree with bugs, birds and wreaths till...
 its decorated like Christmas.
 This little one collected all the toad stools,
 carried them around to the tray
 and sorted.
 Each day for the past week
 the scene looked different.
 We had to move it to a new location
and  found new toys to join in the fun.
