  1. Has anyone made a submarine in their "under the sea" role-play area? If so...do you have any photos you could share? or an easy way of making a submarine that wont collapse/fall apart as soon as the children play in it!?
    I'm hoping to make a smallish submarine (for 1 or 2 children to fit in) and then make the surroundings look like "under the sea."

    Don't forget the beeps!
    I thinnk you'll need some video clips to get the children in the mood. Most of our three-year-olds wouldn't have a clue about life under the sea. Having said that, it does sound like it might be fun.
  3. beeps are a good idea!
    The reason we are doing under the sea is because quite a few of the children in my class talk about submarines! [​IMG] We've just done a topic on transport..and they've spent a lot of time talking about submarines and boats..i also have a child who is obsessed with turtles! so under the sea can cover both submarines/water transport and creatures that live under the sea!
    Does anyone have a photo of a submarine in their role-play area? or an under the sea role-play area?
    and any other great ideas for "under the sea" would be much appreciated! [​IMG]

    you could use tunnels for airlocks if you have them in your PD equipment and a large box with portholes

    saw the above links for under the sea and a submarine the other day on ********** when was looking for inspiration for my cottage role play. hope that helps

    Any ideas about what I can put in my cottage to make it more inviting? ( I thought it could double as cottage from little red riding hood and jack's cottage from jack and beanstalk- which are two books we are focusing on at the moment.
