tot tupperware town.

i am always looking for activities that will 
encourage independent & imaginative play.

not only does it give mommy a few minutes to herself.
but it also is so beneficial in stimulating creativity 
& setting the stage for make believe play.

one of patrick's {and mommys} favorite activities is our
tot tupperware town.

i simply bought an extra large tupperware & lid.
and then filled it with sand. rocks. pebbles. sticks.
that is the foundation for this activity.

every week or so i rotate out little towns for patrick to play with.
sometimes it is construction town. sometimes its dinosaur town.
sometimes its jungle town. and so on.

i had all of our towns out today to take pictures.
and somehow {haha} they ended up all in the bin together.
so for today. we have a construction town that is being invaded by dinosaurs. 
so totally awesome.

i love sitting to the side & observing patrick play.
it is so neat to watch his imagination soar.

bulldozers push through the sand.
monster dump trucks get filled with rocks.

mama giraffes walk the sand dunes 
with their baby giraffes close behind.

broccoli-sauraus {brachiosaurus} eat the sticks.
while t rex jumps over big boulders.

& sometimes patrick really gets into it.

it is his own personal sandbox safari.

what is really great about this activity is the portability.
we keep this tupperware in our garage. it is easy to pull out whenever we want.

& because of the lid. it is easy to pack in the trunk to take on-the-go.
to grandmas. to a friends house. to the park. 

we really love it. & we truly use it several times a week.
the possibilities are endless. & so are the hours of fun to be had. 

so mamas. grandmas. aunts . . .
go snag a tupperware & create some fun for your little tots.

oh. and i also like the idea of getting several small tupperware boxes to create mini towns.
that way instead of switching out the towns every week
you could just leave them in their own personal bin. 

just another reason to love tupperware.
