  • some fun ideas: at my library playgroup last thanksgiving, they premade some "turkeys" by stuffing paper lunch bags w/ shredded newspaper and stapled turkey face templates ontop. We cut out the shapes of our hands and LO's hands w/ construction paper and stapled them on for wings. LO's colored the turkey head and wings!

    You can make a pretty picture together which is edible. construction paper or whatever, fruit loops and make a paste w/ flour and water. you ca "glue" the fruit loops on the paper to make a rainbow, flower....etc.

    make a paper plate wreath or paper plate masks (you can use the masks to teach emotions, colors...etc)

    or simply have LO color and frame it!

  • paper plate maracas, hand puppets, finger painting, body tracing to label body parts, leaf tracing.

  • Our favorite activity is a scavanger hunt. -

    we pick a color or a shape and go for a walk and take pictures of everything we see that is that color or shape -

    then when we get home we print pictures off and make collage of everything we took picutes of

    now that DS is a little older we look for things starting with a letter or for a letter.

  • No mess painting- Get a paper or cardboard put it in a ziplock bag, have the child pick out colors of paint drop a few in the bag, close the bag and let them paint. Another one: Get coffee filters and food coloring mix it into water, use droppers to drop color onto coffee filters. Bonus you can punch a whole in the middle and string them on a piece of yarn.
