Fun and learning with your cubby house letter box

With so much of our communication being online, via email, text or phone these days children miss out on the fun and excitement of receiving a letter in the mail. We love adding a letter box to a cubby house because it presents an excellent opportunity for not only an enjoyable and special experience for the kids, but it’s so educational as well. A customer shared with us a great little story about how after their cubby was installed their child told their neighbour about it. After viewing the cubby and noticing the letter box, the elderly neighbour decided to … Read More

Playing school in your cubby house

A favourite imagination game for children to play in their cubby house is to play schools. This is because teachers are one of the first “professions” they are exposed to through kindergarten, pre-school and school. This can be played by a child on their own, where they are the teacher leading a class of either imaginary/teddy bear/ doll students or by several children with one as the teacher and the rest students. An essential part of the classroom/ teacher role play is a blackboard. This can be a fixed blackboard on a wall of the cubby house, by painting a … Read More

Tips for decluttering toys before Christmas

Before Christmas is the perfect time to go through the kids bedrooms, playroom and cubby house to declutter. Decluttering their toys allows space for new toys and gadgets that they will get as gifts from you, family, friends and Santa. It is also a great opportunity for them to enjoy the gift of giving by donating toys in good condition that they no longer want or need. Every family is going to be different in regards to how many toys they have, want and receive. Each child is also different. Some kids do play with a wide range of things while others … Read More

The importance of imagination play.

As passionate as we are about active outdoor play, there is another form of play that is just as important, imagination play. Imagination play, dramatic, pretend or make-believe play as it is also known, is critical for a child’s cognitive development (the development of intelligence, conscious thought, and problem-solving ability that begins in infancy) and social skills. The importance of imagination play can not be underestimated. It helps children to problem solve, gain confidence, learn and gain an understanding of actions and reactions. It’s not only a creative outlet- acting out all the different thoughts in their head, it can be an emotional … Read More
