Merrick enjoys tea!
I often set up Mariann play things and sit with her. We make ourself some tea, give some to bébé budder and feed the doll with sippy cups.
Sitting with her for some minutes, using the stuff I made for her, kind of showing her how-to, allows her to play on her own afterwards.
Tea, eggs, chips, wiped cream, corn, pizza toping and chocolate
Nothing too elaborate. And nothing rigid whatsoever.
And then I find her recreating our play with Merrick. Or reading to him.
(or handing him a pencil....)
Sleeping giraffe, shh!
Lion plushes can breastfeed giraffes. I tell you.
