Play is the way that children make sense of the world around them, explore situations, feelings and relationships. But what if we are living in such unchartered times that there are no toys or play resources to reflect our daily lives?
The creative team at ToyLikeMe have specially created the ‘My Little Lockdown Life in a Box’ project to enable you to play and create stories around life in the Covid19 crisis to help children process and understand why life has gone a bit… topsy turvy!
One day, children will tell their own grandchildren about the strange time when the schools shut and we all had to stay inside for weeks and weeks and not see our friends
This printable download contains all you need to create a paper version of your family members and a shoebox lockdown home. An heirloom to keep forever – it’s literally ‘History in the MAKING!’
Crack open the felts tips, grab an old shoe box and get the whole family involved. Colour, cut, stick and talk about what has happened, how it’s affected your family and build your tiny lockdown world just the way you like.
Send pictures of your creations to us at Facebook.com/toylikeme or firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay Safe, Keep Creating!
