Now that summer is ending I came up with a way to keep vacation fresh, at least on Dotty's shelves. What I did was print a picture of her doing something at the Boardwalk and make it the theme of a shelf. Take a look....
This is the bi-plane ride she loved. I found this wooded bi-plane online and added a sticker book.
Of course the carousel is a favorite! We have a book, two figurines and a cd of carousel music. (The music is fabulous and as soon as you hear it you are there.)
This is of course a beach theme. Big plastic storage bin, play sand, seashells, and a bucket. We keep this one for use on our porch.
I am so excited to create more activities based on her experiences, helping her engage in the present by reflecting on the past.
