Winnie -the- Pooh Small World Play

We’re gearing up for Winnie -the- Pooh theme week in the Homeschooler household. To kick things off we set up a small world play in the bathtub.

Welcome to the 100 Acre Wood.

Unlike our Middle Earth small world play which was based on a single scene, this play set up was based on the map in the front of our Winnie -the- Pooh storybook.

Almost the entire set up was made from things we already had around the house:
– blue and green paint make up the base layout
– green playdough acts as a base to help hold up leaves trimmed from bushes outside to create trees

– blue playdough with blue glass gems pressed into it makes up the floody place behind Piglet’s home

– a short, thick stick acts as the log Pooh sits on outside his home
– some pine needles wrapped together with a rubber band and trimmed short make up Pooh’s fire pit

– the sandy pit where Roo plays is actually instant mashed potatoe flakes (we were out of brown sugar otherwise that would have made a more accurate looking sand)
– small balls of orange playdough with a tiny nub of green pipe cleaner pressed into the center make up the carrots in Rabbit’s garden

– yellow pony beads threaded onto short pieces of black pipe cleaner make up bees for the honey tree

– smooth stones for the stoney place are from our small world stash and were originally purchased from Dollar Tree

– in hindsight, I wish I had collected some thistles from outside for Eeyore’s gloomy place

The Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore figurines were each purchased separately at Dollar Tree.¬†Unfortunately we didn’t have a Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, Rabbit’s friends & relations, Owl, nor a Christopher Robin (but the kids didn’t seem to mind)
