I think my big problem with putting together PL is that I don't have a overarching plan and I always find myself digging around at the last minute for materials.
So I've been reading over some lists of PL activities online, consolidating and grouping them. I'm going to try to come up with a good progression and then gather up the necessary materials. I'll assemble little PL "kits" with the basics where I can then swap out pieces (for instance, put together two bowls and a spoon, but leave the material as something that I can change out depending on my mood, the season, or our theme).
Are there any favorites in your house that I should give a try with Nugget?
