Kids are busy little people, working hard to discover their new world and learn everything they can. They move from
one test to another in a matter of minutes and need a great deal of chasing, engaging, cleaning up after, and
redirection.
These ten creative activities by Teacher Training Mumbai will keep kids engaged for at least ten minutes at a time, and they are great for encouraging both an increase in their attention span and budding motor skills.
1.Sorting Machine. Most kids love to sort things. For a kid who enjoys organizing, give a few handfuls of
multi-colored, O-shaped cereal and a muffin pan. With a little direction, she’ll arrange the cereal by color into
the muffin pan cups and enjoy a healthy snack. For a non-edible activity, use blocks or decorated manipulative.
2.Future Picasso. A bowl of spongy, chopped fruit with a little cream cheese and graham crackers is great for an
enjoyable, edible art project. First, spread the cream cheese on the graham cracker. Then have the kid press fruit
chunks into the cream cheese to create a nutritious work of art. You may just motivate the world’s next Picasso.
3.Toy Rotation. A bin filled with toys can be hideaway for months in a closet or cupboard. When the forgotten toys
are reintroduced, kids feel they have rediscovered them.
4.Shake It Up. Place toys or treats inside clear containers with the lids attached. Kids love to shake and clatter
things, and when a kid realizes a treat is inside, the activity will be even more interesting.
5.Water Colors. Add a drop of blue food coloring to a low wading pool or sand and water table. Throw in some sea
creature toys. For a change of theme, use green food coloring and jungle creature toys. It makes a great open-air
activity on warm days. Keep in mind to closely manage any water play.
6.Paper Play. Consider allowing kids to enfold themselves in toilet paper and imagine they are snowmen, or to beautify the room with toilet paper streamers. You may want to use the game as a potty training introduction or celebration of a potty success.
7.Roughin’ It. Turn over a bench or gather chairs into a circle in the middle of the room, then wrap blankets over
them to construct tents. Flashlights and a non-sticky snack can create a fun atmosphere while you read a story or sing songs.
