I had a rare night out with a friend last week. When I returned home, I found a little town set up in J’s playroom. My creative husband had made a bunch of houses out of Duplos and set them up on J’s road rug. Apparently, J asked for houses and roads, and this is what my husband came up with.
That was a week ago and the houses have been played with daily, and they are still intact! Each day they get set up a bit differently and J adds something new every time he plays with them.
He’s added several different type of cars, signs, animals, and a dinosaur even made an appearance a few days ago.
By providing open ended play experiences like his help J expand his creative mind. He gets to stretch his imagination, problem solve, and create.
I am impressed with how much he enjoys his Duplo houses. I wonder how much longer they’ll be around before he destroys them to make something new.
What kinds of things do your kids like to do with Duplos?
