Kids Co-op - Simple pretend play

Its time for Kids Co-op again. Please link up your favourite kids posts and take a look at what others have been up to. This week I'm linking the following:
(Goblin is 40 months)
Goblin is loving pretend play at the moment. The other day he asked me if we could build a camp fire. I didn't really fancy it so I said "why don't we make a pretend one". Goblin nodded happily and I dived inside the house and emerged a minute later with some orange, yellow and red paper.
We found an old wooden plant obelisk lying around the garden and stuffed the ripped paper into the slats. I gave Goblin a stick and he set to work tending his camp fire. To top off his play I provided a ball of cotton wool held together with tape - a marshmallow for him to toast.
Remember, creative play doesn't have to be complicated. 
And now to the linky

  1. Thanks so much for hosting - Alice

    P.S. How on earth do you get hair clips to stay in - our's are out within minutes every day and instantly lost - grrrr!!

    1. They do tend to migrate to the back of his head by the end of the day. We bought a bulk load meant for hairdressers on Ebay so we aren't so bothered when we lose some.

  2. Looks like a lot of fun!


  3. Oh wow that looks just like the derrick of an oil rig. You could pretend to go drilling for oil :)

  4. Loving your pretend fire. Mine have been doing the real thing for Country Kids this week. I have linked back with last week's post where they were playing Narnia out on the farm.

  5. A lovely linky - I can't believe I've not found it before now - will be putting some of these to use this half term week - bags of inspiration - thanks for hosting !

  6. Love this idea, I find that when the children get a few sticks they make a fire, whether they have ever been round a real one or not. Kierna
