Project Play – Over Under

This is one of my favorite activities because the children are developing their large muscles and don’t even know it!  Tape large pieces of paper Over the table and tape another large piece of paper Under the table ~ you could use newspaper too.  Give your child a variety of materials…crayons, markers, colored pencils, colored tape or stickers.  Encourage him to creatively express himself on both!

Happy Playing!

Project Play – Grass Art

This is one of my favorite activities for children…I LOVE to see their creativity and watch their imagination unfold!  There are only 2 simple materials you need: contact paper (if you don’t have contact paper, glue and paper will work) and grass.  The contact paper is so fun to explore alone but once you give your child the grass to stick on the contact paper, watch how he will place each piece of grass to create his masterpiece!

Project Play – Bubble Painting

This activity makes such colorful bubbles!  Add a good amount of your favorite color of paint to a container of bubbles.  You can experiment with different painting tools but the more  your child moves the tool back and forth, the more colorful bubbles appear!

Project Play – Sticker Time!

Stickers!  I haven’t met a child yet that does not love stickers…getting one and sticking them;)  This project is so simple but so rich in development.  All you need is a sheet of paper and a sheet of stickers to enhance fine motor skills, experience cause and effect and explore textures.  It may take some time showing your child how to peel the sticker off the sheet and how to stick it on the paper without it sticking to his finger but after that he will be a pro;)  I have some preschool children that can clear a sheet of stickers in record speed!  LOL  Let him experiment with the stickers…how hard is it to pull it off the paper, how sticky is it, does it get less sticky as he plays with it, introduce puffy stickers, or what does it feel like to cover your body in stickers, use the stickers to practice one-to-one correspondence counting.  So many endless possibilities!!!

Happy Playing!
