Winter in the Woods Play Set in a Box

This afternoon I made this Winter in the Woods Play Set in a Box to go along with our Mother Goose Time Winter in the Woods theme. I had way too much fun making it!  Brett placed all the animals. I hope the kids will enjoy playing with it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Set it up as you desire. Let your imagination go! Leave some loose pieces so the children can move them around.

Look out Moose! You’re being hunted!

Look around and see what’s happening in this winter wonderland!

We made logs made out of small cardboard tubes. I just painted them brown.
We put in a pile of corn for the deer.

This scenescape is beautiful - I can't imagine a child not wanting to play with it. I think over Christmas break I'll get creative and make one too. Thanks
