• Culture / social / emotional development – dating back through most cultures in history, a circle is traditionally the way meetings are held.
  • Children have opportunities to chat in small groups and use the logs and a prop for play.
  • Imagination / creativity – Great for plays and storytelling; 3 chairs of different sizes will lend itself to the 3 bears. The table alone is great in the sandpit for a table or bench for sand creations.
  • Science / nature – discussion about where the log came from, what it feels like, looking at and counting the rings and patterns at the top of the log, a great introduction to trees and introducing sustainability.
