We have been having great fun creating various small worlds over the last few weeks using a shoe box. Using the same shoe box but altering the backdrops bring the small world set up back to life again and today I am sharing with you the Peppa Pig Small World with muddy puddles!
I used green paint to add the grass and hills in the background. I already had a blue painted box, so I kept that blue for the sky. I added a yellow sun and a fluffy white cloud.
It really was as simple as that. We have lots of the Peppa World, so I added the characters from that and set this box up outdoors. It was a great day for this actually as we have had sunny spells followed by heavy down pours today, so we had puddles of our own to jump around in.
Little N's narrations while playing with this small world really did make me smile to myself!! She kept telling George he wasn't allowed in the muddy puddles because he didn't have his boots on and he was being naughty as he wouldn't put his dinosaur down.
She went from rotating Peppa and her friends from one muddy puddle to the next before splishing and splashing in puddles on the patio.
