My friend, Angie (Real Life at Home) has created a fabulous new e-book! It’s called Finding Educational Activities in the Most Unexpected Places and it contains over 200 fun, hands-on activity ideas for your preschoolers and younger kiddos (though, if they’re anything like mine, I bet your older kids will want to get in on the fun, too.)
Angie is a former teacher-turned-homeschool-mom (I know lots of them) with a master’s degree in special education. She still works part-time as an in-home therapist for kids under the age of three who have developmental delays. This e-book was born of her experience working with these kids and their parents, many of whom have told Angie that they wished they had the cool toys that she has. Angie wanted to show these families that they had the tools, right in their own homes, to engage their kids in active play.
So, she wrote this awesome e-book, perfect for parents homeschooling older kids with toddlers and preschoolers in the mix, parents who want to actively engage their young children, home daycare providers, grandparents…anybody who has young kids with whom they want to enjoy some quality play time.
Some of the common items that you’ll find turned into active play for your kiddos are:
- Cardboard tubes
- Cotton balls
- Dish pans
- Egg cartons
- Plastic bottles
You’ll also find a list of great books for kids and details on how to dye your own pasta and rice. What is it about dyed pasta and rice that is so much fun? Even I still enjoy that!
So, what are you waiting for? Go find out more about Angie’s book!
