Do-It-Yourself Early Learning: Easy and Fun Activities and Toys from Everyday Home Center Materials
Children can pluck an elastic band to learn about the vibrations that create music, or they can bake a cake to learn measurement and reading skills.
Everyday Early Learning provides a myriad of ways to use everyday items for great early learning opportunities. For each activity, the book lists an age range, materials, step-by-step instructions, and possible variations. All are inexpensive and allow children to learn without much adult involvement.
These projects will help children develop skills in language and literacy, math and logical thinking, science and problem-solving, and art and creative representation, as well as social and physical skills.
