Mary Mary story basket is a fun way to engage your little one in learning this nursery rhyme.
Story baskets are a great way to allow your little one to be creative and stretch their imaginations.
Allow them to find or create the props for the story basket. This way they'll be engaged from the beginning.
If they can't find what they want, they can always get a little crafty and create them.
Sometimes they'll find ways to substitute an item for what it is they are really after.
Not a problem at all! They are simply using their imaginations to make it so!
For our Mary Mary story basket we actually used a gift bag to hold our props.
This particular gift bag was covered in beautiful colorful flowers, just like Mary's garden.
We found packets of various flower seeds, a child sized watering can and little child safe plastic seed starter pots.
Don't feel you must use a basket for this activity. You could just as easily use a preprinted gift bag, or have your little one decorate a plain colored gift bag to suit them for whatever the rhyme is you're working on.
If you give this idea of story baskets at try, please come back and share with us your special story.
We'd love to hear what rhyme or story you selected, how you and your little one went about assembling the props, and the results.
We'd really love to see one with video of your little one acting out their special rhyme or story.
