We have been using playscapes so much these days. This playscape was special in that I was able to teach in the moment a bit and tell Bear about where rivers come from and where they end up.  On the left you see our brown mountain with a small stream and you can see the stream widening into a small river, a wider river and then opening up into the ocean at the right.  We also placed the animals in their respective environments as we played with them, so the mountain goats are on the mountain, the moose and elk in the grasslands, the river otter and beaver in the river and the whale and dolphin in the ocean.

Come over and play at the Childhood 101 We Play link up
