Small World Play - State Fair, Part 2

The state fair we went to this year had a circus, so we added a circus ring to our state fair small world play.

Little C wasn't very interested in creating a variety of things for the performers and animals to do, she was more focused on making seats for the audience. So this time around we had a very simple circus ring (made from the lid of a large round box) with a few blocks for the animals to stand on. I think Little C added the hippo and giraffe to our circus because she'd just seen those animals on an episode of Little Einsteins...but here is a list of animals you're likely to see at the circus!
  1. Elephants
  2. Lions
  3. Tigers
  4. Camels
  5. Horses
  6. Dogs
  7. Llamas
  8. Pigs
  9. Kangaroo (maybe not likely, but we did see one at a Ringling Bros. show!)
Here are some shots of the circus we built a little while back.

I'll leave you with some more ideas for circus acts (try using different building materials besides Duplos - Tinker Toys and regular Legos would be great additions!):

  1. Tightrope walkers
  2. Trapeze artists
  3. Bicycle/motorcycle riders
  4. Dancers/acrobats
  5. Clowns/jugglers
  6. High jump into a pool
