Pretend play ideas for rainy days

10 Pretend Play Ideas for Rainy Days

FAM, kids By March 12, 2013 Tags: , , , , , , , , 8 Comments

Recently, we have been feeling so much pressure to register, to organize play dates, to structure. What about spontaneity?  Learning through play? We have been soliciting ideas for fun, learning-enhancing activities that can be done with little or no cost. Pretend play offers young children a chance to practice skills within their own frame work and rules, letting them set the boundaries. You can always make suggestions if they need it but follow them, not the other way around.

Kid's Playtime: Dressing Up

Uncategorized By December 1, 2008 Tags: , , , 3 Comments

Lion CapeThere are a few special indulgences in childhood.. the sterling rattle, the christening outfit, wooden heirloom toys.  We think that every child should play, and dressing up is a fabulous pastime that stimulates the imagination, the senses and the emotions.  Of course, dressing up is even better when your attire is crafted of organic flax cotton in a stunning, muted palette.  Wovenplay’s designs (exclusive to Enfant Terrible) tranform children into cowgirls, moths and ballerinas with the loveliest fabrics and hand-screened images.  Shown: The Lion Cape.
