I’ve created several small worlds for my son and they’ve always been a great success. If I provide enough variety then it can keep him busy for ages!

To create this small world I used the following:

  • Glass baking dish
  • Plastic grass and mini trees (found in the clearance section in the aquarium area of a pet shop)
  • Green and blue homemade play dough
  • Sand (from the flower decorating section of the dollar store)
  • Dried moss
  • Small plastic toy dogs
  • Mini bones (these were actually beads that I bought on ebay!)
  • Mini pompoms (I used these tie-dye ones from
  • Small sticks (from the garden)

I used a little piece of green play dough to secure the plastic grass and tree to the base of the dish.Dog Small World

Then I added some blue play dough and sand in one corner. Dog Small World

Next I added some more green play dough, and the fake moss.Dog Small World

With the base of the dish covered, it was time to add the dogs, bones, balls (pom poms) and sticks. Dog Small World

F followed this with all kinds of pretend play – getting a dog to drink some water, moving a dog through the sand and grass, and then playing with the balls and sticks. Dog Small World - fun pretend play!
