Play With Me: Action [Part 3]
This is the third week of the Play With Me: Action series. This week we will focus on mystery with two activities that will have your little ones guessing and laughing. Again we will need a large dose of sillies on hand for this week's activities.
These activities are designed for children between 2 and 5 years old. Before getting started, parental assistance will be needed to help collect and setup supplies. Consider sending the supply list ahead of time so the parent can prepare in advance.
Make two hosts for a finger puppet dance party mystery. One made from a paper cup and the other from a paper plate.
- Paper or plastic cup
- Paper plate or round piece of paperboard cut from an old cereal box
- Scissors or pointy knife
- Paint brush and paint, marker or pen
- Paper napkin, tissue paper or paper towel
- Tape or glue
Let the Dance Party "Mystery" begin:
Activity #2 - I found it!
- 4-5 items of the same bright color to be "hidden" in each room
- A picture of the things you have hidden sent (emailed, texted etc. ) to your child ahead of time
Start by having your child look at the picture of the things you have hidden in the room. Do not tell your child what the items in the picture are or talk to them about them. Then either face the camera of your device so that your child can see the objects you have hidden in the room or walk around with your device so that they can see them as you describe them.
Once they find all of the objects in one room move to the next room. You can put all the objects close to each other to make it easier or spread them out around the room depending on the desired level of difficulty you need for your child. You may want to add in extra objects of the same color that you do not ask your child to find just to make it a little more challenging.
