Coconut tea party
I normally stick to art and craft posts on this blog because that is the stuff I like best. Imaginary play and I don't really get along. I do my bit and pretend to be a lion or whatever is demanded but I know I am lacking in the enthusiasm department. Since being away from home, Cakey and I have been doing a lot less craft than normal. Our craft supplies from home have all been used up and we are not set up for anything too messy. This has meant I have been forced to participate in loads of imaginary play. Our coconut tea party has been my favourite to date.
We are fortunate to have rented a holiday house with a coconut tree. This tree has heaps of coconuts on it and heaps on the ground too. The coconuts are just perfect for rolling into a circle and setting up a tea party for all of Cakey's animals. For Cakey, I think the best bit is when we cut up some oreos for all her animals to share... she always kindly helps them polish them off.
