Ah! A brown box is an infinitely wonderful thing! What can I do with this box?
OK, here I realized what Waldorf teachers mean when they say to keep toys simple. The brown box has so many more possibilities than the painted one, which only has 1 possibility: Cinderella’s attic. However, I had to make this doll house, perhaps due to my inner urge to live out my own childhood wishes.
I have since then (attempted to) refrain from making toys which are too detailed for my children. After all, a simple toy leads to much more imaginative play. But truthfully, I enjoy making the doll houses perhaps even more than my children enjoy playing with them.
Alas, here I managed to capture a picture of my little one enjoying it!
Friday July 12, 2013. Here, we re-used our Cinderella’s attic in a homemade table top puppet show, “The Apple Cake” by Nienke van Hichtum. Click on image below to see photos from our puppet show that day. Enjoy!
