Why we love push, pull & carry activities
Your world on wheels
When you're too young to drive, pushing your toys along with you is the next best thing. Take your teddies for a picnic or put your 'baby' in the pram. Or simply enjoy the pleasures of transporting.
Go to the shops
Playing shop is a rich source of language. Fill bags and baskets with your purchases, ready to carry with you wherever you go.
"Where are you going to, Little Red Riding Hood?" "I'm taking this basket of apples to my grandmother". From the Sly Fox and the Little Red Hen to Handa's Surprise, bags and baskets feature in many children's stories. They're a brilliant prop for role play.
