an invitation to play - railway city

Pin It

Have you guys heard the phrase 'invitation to play'? I read about it on Childhood 101 which is one of my most visited blogs - I am literally working my way through her archives, there are so many great posts.

In short an invitation to play is just that. A little set-up of toys or materials, presented in an imaginative way, for your little one to find and explore. I kind of already did this, without realising, but soon as I knew about the actual concept I spent a lot more time working on them.


I got down on the floor while the kiddos were napping and looked at this little scene from their point of view. I wanted the play to be open-ended and imaginative and use materials they are familiar with (pipecleaners, straws and conkers for example) but in a new way.


What do you think, does it look inviting?
