This small world was a blast to do. I put together a treasure island using sand, wooden slices, stones and shells. I used Duplo people again and I used Duplo flowers and bridge. We also made some cork pirate ships so needed some "sea". Therefore, to stop the sand getting too wet to play with I put the sand in a big dish. Button loved this and played for over an hour with it all. 

Cork pirate ship

  • Three corks
  • Two elastic bands
  • Tooth pick
  • Paper 

To make the ship, place the three corks in a row and use the two elastic bands to hold them in place. Cut a small square of paper and stick the tooth pick through it to make a sail. Then stick the tooth pick sail in the middle cork. This will then float. 



  • Sand 
  • Dish to place sand in (if using water) 
  • Stones and shell's to make rock pools
  • Wooden slices and branches to make a jungle
  • Treasure boxes to hide 
  • Bridge, flowers (all duplo)
  • People
