The Many Uses of Pillows

When we play with the same toys every day, it's important to use our imaginations to think of all the different ways our toys can be used to stimulate our minds. I set out the pillows that are kept in the classroom for B and H to play with and watched how they interacted with them.

We can stack them. 
We can do headstands on them.
We can feel how squishy they are.
With a little help we can build a fort to sit in alone.
Or with a friend.
We can rest our heads on them.

We can sit on them. 
We can throw them in the air.
We can have a pillow fight.
Children are extremely good at finding new ways to use common objects. With little help from me, H and B were able to find so many uses for the pillows before they were ready to move on to something else.
