Inspired by this post from Danielle Conger's blog, I decided to take pictures when I cleaned Maya's room a couple weeks ago for her. She spends a lot of time in there pretending and playing with all sorts of things, and it quickly gets overwhelming. I don't clean it up every week, but once I (or occasionally she and I) get started on it, I always enjoy the treasures I find in there and the stories she tells about what she was doing with this or that -- little peeks into her imagination.
A homemade paperdoll and a dressed up Raggedy Ann
The beginnings of a doll she's making
Some extra mouse cage litter (hey, at least it wasn't used mouse cage litter) as play pet food
A pipe cleaner leash
The gift of a clean slate for the next round of creations
