I love how sometimes the simplest play ideas are the best. Yesterday we went to the allotment and 'The fairy' wanted to bring her new toy giraffe (she was very proud as she got it as a reward for getting stickers on her sticker chart).
Soon her imagination was at work, she pretended the garlic was a 'jungle'
She decided he needed a house so set about work collecting stones to make one.
Then he needed a bed (apparently giraffes like to sleep on grass and dandelions).
