Have a go at making your own magnetic puzzles. Magnetic puzzles add a fun dimension to puzzling that toddlers and preschoolers cant resist. Pieces stay in place and no more stepping over puzzles on the floor or searching for lost pieces.
With perhaps a little help from you, kids will have lots of fun making their own recycled robots with items you're recycling or already have around the house. Making recycled robots teaches kids about recycling every day items and giving them another purpose, instead of just throwing them away. It is also a great activity for using their imagination, concentration and problem solving skills.
Kids will have fun making their own garden fairies, especially over summer when plants are in full bloom. Teach them the names of the flowers that you use, discuss the different shades of colour and how plants grow.
