small constructions vehicles in the center of your table for
a centerpiece. To give it a real punch, add REAL dirt. You
won't need a mountain of it to give the effect! Make sure
to put some of the dirt in the dozer shovel!
a 2x4 on the ground across a blue sheet (the sky below.) Tell
the children that they must walk across it like a girder beam
on a tall skyrise being built. For variations (and older children)
ask them to walk backwards, sideways, on one foot, giant steps,
speed walk, etc.
small toys and pennies in the dirt and allow the children
to dig to find them.
sure to blow the whistle when it's time eat!
