    Spring play ideas

    Written by Sheila O’Reilly

    We’ve finally made it to Spring! I’ve never been happier to leave the Winter months behind. It’s been a long haul with lockdown and miserable weather. The days are so much brighter and signs of Spring are popping up everywhere with gorgeous daffodils and tulips and birdsong. I love Spring-themed activities and thought a blog sharing some of our Spring play might be useful😀.

    The Benefits of Bookish Play and using Story Sacks

    Written by Sheila O’Reilly

    Bookish play is a wonderful way of introducing books to your little one and will generally keep their attention for much longer than just reading the story.  Children love to play! Fun and interactive activities based on their story book can spark their imagination and really bring a story to life.


  3. What is a story sack?

    Posted on

    I have recently come across the ideas of story sacks. My son was able to bring one home from school. It is normally a large cloth bag with a chidren's story book included with supporting materials, all related to the theme of the book.

    The supporting materials can include factual and reference books, toys including soft toys and games which would all be linked to the children's story book.  

    Here are a few suggestions of story sacks you can create yourself using some of our toys from The Wooden Play Den.
