Heather goes glamping
This holiday season, Heather and her friends decided to celebrate by going glamping! They stocked up on yummy snacks, connected their camper to the car, and hit the open road. They can’t wait to cozy up and read, cook up delicious meals, and gaze at the starry winter sky. Maybe they’ll even see a shooting star! 
This play idea is great for encouraging a sense of discovery! Reenacting a story about camping or glamping is an opportunity to talk about exploration, nature, and geography as wellIt can even prepare little ones for their first camping trip if there’s one in the works!
