hi, I just wanted to get a feel from people what sorts of things children (boys in particular) play with when they lose interest in all the nice wooden things like blocks, train tracks, vehicles, dolls houses, etc. My son has just turned 6 and though I've found all the early childhood information really useful I'm wondering what happens next.
What sorts of things do you find useful to have around for them and how does their play change? What sorts of toys are nice (from a Waldorf perspective). I'm assuming there'll be continued interest in these things for a little while longer but feel there is a need for more/something else soon.
I'm thinking both indoor and outdoor play, mainly indoor I guess.
Thanks in advance for your ideas/thoughts/experience.
