My kids have really been enjoying the Richard Scarry's Busy Town book lately as well as his others in the Busy Town series.
They especially enjoy looking at the maps inside the covers and seeing where things are all over the town.
When we all ended up sick a few weeks ago I decided we'd make a busy town of our own. I didn't have a shower curtain on hand but I do have a stock of plastic dollar store table cloths so we used one of those. We taped it to the floor with painters tape.
My daughter was asleep but requested a purple castle. I drew it then my son drew a moat around it.
When we finished drawing, we busted out Little People, Imaginext figures, and more to play.
Luckily, Spiderman, Hulk and Batman came in and saved the day.
Next, he wants to make outer space with planets, stars, aliens and space ships. I'll tell you all about it when we draw that one.
Have you done this with your kids? What did you include in your town?
