"Play is a huge part of the developmental process for our little ones.

"I was kindly given these little guys to have an experiment with, and who best to try them out than my son, ‘Little Man’. Being mirrored they can easily be hidden amongst most things, so for this activity I chose to place them around my garden for a game of hide and seek.

This is a good activity when you have a few children playing, perhaps siblings, or children of different stages. Include a range of questions, so younger children get lots that they are able to work out themselves, along with a few that stretch them. They might like to use the gold coin number line (see below) to work out the answers.

Exploring the Outdoor Classroom | Learn through Play - pre-K | Scoop.it

A while back, we set up a "science lab" in the outdoor classroom. Various shades of colored water filled bins upon bins in our dramatic play area. The children donned goggles and lab coats and set to work mixing the brilliant colors in beakers, funnels, measures, cups, basters, and more.

"Also, we can allow them to hear us “talk ourselves through” tough times. For example: “Oh, this is tough.  I’m going to take a few breaths and figure out what to do.  I’ll handle this.  I’ll get through this!”  The goal is not to deny difficult feelings, the goal is to acknowledge them and deal with them effectively! That’s a game-changer!"

"We tried to keep busy every day to avoid going stir crazy inside the house. I have these awesome ice cube trays that shape the ice into perfect cubes. I figured they would make fun blocks for the kids with a little food colouring added to them. The kids had a blast. One word of caution though, the colours will run and will get on your kids outside clothes."
