I need some ideas! I’m tired of the tablet and YouTube 🙃
Pinterest is a great place to get fun ideas! I want to start doing more also with my 3 year old girl and she loves coloring. She woke me up today to the baby shark song on her IPad
He isn’t a huge fan of coloring. I’ve been browsing Pinterest and have gotten a couple of ideas but not much. I have a password on my iPad for that very reason! 🤣
It’s hers to play with usually she’ll just get on kids YouTube for a minute before I wake up but this morning we all needed to sing and do the motions to the song!!! 6am to early for baby shark dodododododo
Magnidoodle art, paper and crayon to draw, dot to dots working on numbers or letters
Make puppets, cut paper make snow flakes/fold oragami, ginger bread house, play catch, get some pipe cleaners and make stuff. Play cops and robbers, hide and seek, dress up, tea party, barbies. Play dough, building blocks. Make a fort or get a little pop out tent kid tent. Make your own unique game with your kid. Trampoline park ice skating.
give them a large cardboard box and some markers. the imagination will run wild!! if you have the patience for mess, play-doh, slime, orbeez and kinetic sand are fun sensory activities. my daughter loves painting with glue and layering cut up pieces of colored tissue paper (that she cut). paint brushes and water outside :)
I like to go to the dollar store to get art stuff. Glitter glue (doesn’t make as big of a mess as glitter), google eyes, puff balls, construction paper and I just put it all out and let them go to town. Cut small pieces of paper to glue on. Seems to entertain mine for a while.
Love these ideas! Thanks y’all.
Stickers. Cutting paper or play dough. Stamps. Car art- roll toy cars in paint and then on paper. Chalk. White board markers, place paper with shapes or letters to trace in a page protector or laminate it and let him practice tracing or drawing, then erase and start over. If he likes legos, make paper legos that he can glue on paper to build a design.
Other ideas that are not crafts: sorting toys or objects around house based on one or two characteristics. Focus on vocabulary and describing similarities and differences between objects. Practice kicking a soccer ball or throwing a small foam ball. Matching games are great.
abcmouse.com and leapfrog have great teaching interactive sites for preschoolers.
