Ideas for using the Famous Figures:

  • Play may not seem like "school work" but children internalize the lessons they learn through their imagination and active free time.
  • Learning the stories and then acting them out, whether formally or informally solidifies their knowledge into joyful learning experiences that can last a lifetime.
  • Do your children need something to do with their hands while they listen to you read aloud? Let them play with their figure while you read a book to them.
  • When they're done playing with the figures, string them on a piece of yarn and hang your living timeline on a wall!
