Hello friends! It is a cloudy, frigid, spring day in Pittsburgh and we were eager for a distraction this morning.
Little Hannah starting carrying a paper bag around and it ripped opened.
Levi wanted to draw on the paper bag.
Mommy’s brain sparked an idea! Hence, our pretend neighborhood came to be with a group effort!
- minimum of 3 recycled paper bags
- sharpie marker
- car, truck or some type of pretend vehicle
Directions: Simply cut a paper bag apart along the side edges to create one connected flat piece. Use a sharpie to draw lines like roads, create a park or wherever imagination takes you! My two year old loved sharing his ideas…”Draw a swing mommy!” “Put a duck in the water, over there!” I would encourage you to ask your child how they imagine their neighborhood and work together to create it. So fun. So easy. Get creating!
