The playroom tour gave you an overview of Finn's learning area; now it is time to look closer and take a peek inside our continent boxes, our most loved learning material of all time! You already had a look through our Asia continent box, so today Finn and I are taking you to the lands of the elephants (who's read too much Babar...?) !
|Putting away the South America box... before choosing the Africa one|
Who's the scary mummy...?
....laughing underneath his bandages!
Our Africa continent box is full to the brim with interesting pictures and artefacts.
A Masai statuette, an Egyptian scarab, a sand rose, a flamingo feather, coins from Algeria, African music, a map, postcards, bandage to become a mummy, a djellaba...
A keyring with pictures of Africa-related books we own that are stored in a basket in the room.
Home made matching cards of people and animals, which are now used to play memory games. Here's a post about how I make our picture cards.
Continent boxes are such fun to put together and use! They have been adored by Finn since he was just 2 years old.
They are contributing so much to his knowledge of our world and he can really relate when he hears the name of a continent. This, I'm sure, is such a strong cultural as well as emotional foundation for him as he grows up figuring out his place on Earth.
