    This post is full of awesome ideas! My baby is only 6 months old, but I already do some “strewing” things with him. I’ll get out a toy and set it near him or I’ll play with it myself and see if he gets interested. I’m looking forward to diving into other things you mentioned as he gets older.

    Wonderful ideas! As an unschooling family, strewing is a very familiar term. :o)

    I have been calling this ‘staging’. Usually I will find something that’s been neglected (toy animals, blocks, dress-up wear) and set it up while the kids are elsewhere to make it look inviting. Then, I wait and see what happens!

    Sarah, yep, “staging” sounds good and I think of it in that way too.

    Issa, I think strewing (or “staging”!) works for all ages, and it sounds like you are doing it with your little guy too!

    Melissa, yep, if you are unschoolers I bet you know this concept well! I have several unschooling and homeschooling friends who are great strewers!

    These are great ideas! I love doing this as well and need to do it more often. It seems like having ALL the toys just makes it harder for little ones to choose.

    Your animal/Flubber combination was a huge hit here!

    I love this idea! It could be so much fun, and a great way of helping #1 learn to really LOOK at the world. I’m going to give it a go!
