    Gross Motor

    This Educator found these wonderful hoops at the dollar store. Several of our homes use these in their programming and report they are a huge hit with the children and a wonderful way facilitate gross motor learning during the cooler days. Our Educators have reported using these for open ended games such as musical tag, hop scotch, and even Twister.

    Q-Tip Painting

    To help boost creativity and creativity, this Educator offered Q.Tips during this painting activity. By offering non-traditional painting supplies, children are able to fine tune their fine motor skills, seek out additional sensory experiences, and expirament with different textures. The end result is pretty cute too!

    Nature Walk

    During a nature walk, one of our Educators created these for the children to take with them. As they came across dandelions, the children picked them and placed them into the holes outlining their name. By the end of the walk, they had a beautiful boquet of flowers that also spelled out their names. This activity checks off all the boxes! Gross motor, fine motor, outside play, and education all in one.

    Loose Parts

    Did you know that loose parts play is a great resource to facilitate learning? When children play with loose parts, they are strengthening their sense of self and independence. Loose parts play is often child led and requires the imagination, critical thinking skills, and often keeps children engaged for longer periods of time.

    Check out the loose parts area one of our Educators has included into her programming! This Educator reported that the children were very excited about this invitation to play and could not wait to get started. It is so fun to watch all the different ways children use these items. They could be anything from a steering wheel, to a slice of bread.
