I got an overwhelming response to our family adventure to Terra Studios, so I wanted to share with you another time when I allowed my children to dress up and explore another local attraction. Nestled in the heart of Fayetteville, AR is a lovely city park called Wilson Park . I remember visiting this park and exploring the castle in the late 90’s with my brother who was living here at the time. I also visited the park on my second date with my now husband. It is full of happy memories for me.
One day last summer, I loaded up the kids and packed several costumes in the car. I allowed them to change and have a dramatic play time on the grounds; following behind with my camera.
I actually took over 200 pictures on this day. At one point my son was a green water fairy and a little girl that we met there joined in on the fun. She borrowed a fairy costume as well.
What joy it was to watch the children play! Dramatic play is their job! It is the way they learn. Be sure to find ways to allow your kids to be kids.
I took my favorite 16 photos and made it into a storyboard. I have aspirations to make it into a shutterfly book whenever I get a really good deal.
Be sure to read the captions. Brace yourself for the cuteness!
