Small World Play. Ideas for Learning and Sensory Exploration

Two of us Aunts are away in the mountains this week and having SO much fun with our little families.  We've been hiking, swimming, to an amusement park, driving the mountains, hot-tubbin' it, and just hanging out in our cabin...With a little bear hunting and lots of singing/dancing/pretending to be superman and doctors...thrown in ;) You can keep up with the fun on our Instagram feed and see it all.

What a fun week for Share It Saturday!  This is the first week that all six of us co-hosts are featuring their favorites from the link-up.  Stop by each co-host and see if you were featured.  While you're there, follow along :)

Our kids love small world play.  We've done so many activities that involve little worlds of imagination and pretend.  Small world activities foster language development, story telling, self-confidence, fine motor skills, sensory exploration, and more.  We loved these links from Share It Saturday.  Check them out:
