On a recent trek into our woods, I heard Maren ask Sadie is she wanted to play Native Alaskans. The girls proceed to name themselves Mareniak and Kalliak and look for shelter. They planned to name it after an Alaskan animal once they found a home.
The foraged for berries and kept away from toxic plants.
After catching a wild wolf (Charlie), they bought home materials they'll need to make things with. I am always amazed by their ability to create these play scenarios out of the blue. The creativity and depth in which they take the idea is a joy to watch unfold.
