This morning my son asked what we were going to do whilst his sister was at nursery. We decided to re-read A Squash and a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. Then we thought we would try and re-create the book for ourselves.
A Squash and a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
My son identified all the characters in A Squash and a Squeeze then I sent him off to find one of each from the toy box:
the wise old man
the little old lady
We built a house from Lego bricks on our Lego table and added each character according to the story.
We soon ran out of room so the furniture had to go. My 3 year old had fun building the house, thinking about the story and squeezing everyone in. Eventually he decided we needed to use the roof so we added a floor and put the table and chairs on the roof and added stairs.
He enjoyed re-creating the story and we had to leave our Lego house on the table until daddy got home and saw it!
