Each day this week I’ll be sharing a new Invitation to Play. Yesterday I shared our Pasta and Playdough Invitation and today it’s all about the Construction Site.
I don’t know about your little boys, but J is obsessed with anything with wheels, especially construction trucks. I decided to take advantage of his love for diggers and set up an Invitation to Play that he couldn’t resist!
- White beans
- River rocks
- Construction trucks
I placed everything into a plastic box to the contain the mess…kind of. I also added a few blocks so J could build something if he wanted to.
J’s favorite part was using his diggers to fill up the dump truck. This was a great sensory experience for J because of all the different textures and smells inside the box.
This was a blast for J, but did cause me to get a bit stressed. You see the cornmeal made quite the mess. Next time I’ll use something different, like dirt or even sand.
I will say that I didn’t have to do all the clean up myself! J loves to help vacuum!
Make sure you come back for tomorrow’s invitation…it’s a good one!
If you like what you see here, you’ll love all the fun stuff I pin on Pinterest!
Moon sand would be great fun. thanks for the ideas!
That’s a great idea! I’ll have to try that next time.

Fabulous! I love invitations to play and can’t wait to see what else you have to share.
So great. Our boys would definitely get a long. By the way, do not think I have told you how much I love the look of the site.
