Pretend Play and Wooden Play Food
Pim (4) and Sara (6) love to pretend play -- they literally spend hours where they pretend to be mother and child, daddy and dog, seal and baby, I even caught them 'pretending' to be brother and sister (which they are, so it was quite hilarious to hear them playing: 'brother?'

The best way to avoid pre-bought Halloween costumes that aren’t environmentally friendly… make your own! But finding the time is another thing. So why don’t you make superhero leaf masks this year.
