We have been having some fun in the Lindsay Early Learning Drop-in on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday mornings. Summer drop-in runs from 9:30 – 12:00 until August 11.
We had some fun ideas for a “Make It Box” & “Pick-a-Stick” shared by Jennifer…
The Make It Box
Get a box…any size…Large boxes can become boats, cars, trains, forts. Add a variety of items to the box…paper, tape, scissors, glue, sticks, yarn, fabric, shoelaces, pipe cleaners, paper plates, bags, tissue, markers, feathers….whatever you think would spark your child’s imagination.
Stand back and be amazed at your child's ideas!
Pick-a-Stick (a container filled with tongue depressor sticks)
*Write an activity/idea on each stick i.e wash car/windows, play a game, go to the beach, build a fort, scrub the tub, have a picnic, wash the toys, bake cookies, go on an adventure….. Each day have your child/children pick as many sticks as you would like and that will be your activity for the day.
Playdough Recipe – No Cook 2 cups flour 2 packages of Kool Aid ½ cup salt 2 cups boiling water 3 tbsp. oil
Mix dry ingredients, add boiling water and oil. Knead well until texture is consistent; you may need to add small amounts of flour or oil to reach desired softness. Store in an airtight container.
