This is a simple variation on the rice play theme. We added a bag of plain rice to our strawberry rice to get the colour scheme right. Then the children made a castle from a cereal box, turrets from loo rolls and flags from paper and lolly sticks. We added a toy dragon, some Duplo people including a horse and knight, and most importantly a damsel in distress. However it soon appeared that the damsel was doing as much dragon slaying as brave St George.
