Playing Activities
  • Play with playdough or clay. Roll it into balls, use household utensils such as forks, spoons, spatulas to create unique creations. This activity builds fine motor skills as well as creativity.
  • Create outdoor memories with your child. Get outside in the snow, go sledding, or go for a walk in your neighborhood. Outdoor time is a wonderful way for families to create lasting memories while exploring nature.
  • Use household items in unique ways. Use pots, pans, bowls and spoons to create instruments. Use toilet paper rolls to create a telescope or binoculars to hunt for lions. (Check out, We're going on a lion hunt by Margery Cuyler from the West Bloomfield Township Public Library). Use tissue boxes and construction paper to create funny monsters!
