No Bake Play Dough!

Here's a quick and easy recipe for homemade play dough that doesn't involve any cooking! This bright and colorful modeling clay makes a great instant toy!

Homemade Periscope

Make a periscope with milk cartons and mirrors! This preschool activity is great for playing secret agent and learning simple physics.

Home Bowling Alley

This simple preschool bowling game improves eye-hand coordination and visual tracking. All you need are some empty bottles to get started.

Post Office Pretend Play

Want to help your preschooler learn more about his community while boosting creativity? Set up a post office play station right in your very own home!

Homemade Castanets

There's no need to buy musical instruments when you can make your own castanets in less time than it takes to click your way through a percussive song.

Hopped Up Hide and Seek

This slightly tweaked version of "Hide and Go Seek" hones listening: a key skill for kindergarten.

Play Animal Exercises

Preschoolers need to practice hopping, skipping, and other "gross motor" skills. Why not make it fun by challenging them to move like their favorite animals?

Illustrate a Famous Book!

What if your child couldn't see the pictures of a picture book? In this activity, she'll listen to a story without looking at the images, and create her own.

Tin Can Phone

Tin can phones offer something modern versions don't - a fun project to make with a friend, and a dramatic illustration of vibration and sound waves.

Beanbag Game

Use old coffee cans and socks to make a beanbag toss game for kids in preschool and kindergarten. This activity is great for math and coordination.
