Doorway bean bag toss- made my own version of this using all felt and with monsters where the bean bags go through their mouths. Anyway, my boys really like it and get excited to play when I pull it out. And it was really easy to make. The hardest part was cutting all the felt. I finished it in a couple of days. And I glued it all- no sewing!

Kids craft ideas, putting pom poms in water bottles. This will keep toddlers busy for a long time.
Baby Discovery Bottles. Good idea!
sensory bottles *You can use a little glycerin with water or just baby oil to make the objects float down slower. Older babies through preschool love these! I use the small 8 oz water bottles.
Toddler toy. Old mini water bottles with fun things inside. Neat idea for church maybe?

Memory popsicle stick game. Made these for Anna's best friend's birthday. I decided to laminate the popsicle parts before putting them on the sticks, to make them more durable. I accomplished this by using photo-sized laminating sheets and having the bottom (flat) end of each pospicle stick out just a tiny bit from the edge to leave that part open for inserting the popsicle sticks.

Wiggle worms: Draw worms and hearts on strips of paper. Sit in a circle on the floor. Take turns passing the bag around the circle and pulling out a strip of paper. If you pull out a "wiggle worm" then everyone stands up and wiggles. If you pull out a heart then everyone gives each other a hug, or comes in for a big group hug.

Painless artist study: a learning center idea
I've had the Great Artist book for at least 3 years and still haven't found time to use it. Will have to try this and maybe it will get used finally
With only a little planning, I can set up a display that entices my children to use their “free time” in a fun and meaningful way. They read the books at their leisure and enjoy experimenting with the art supplies to create their own masterpieces

To make this game, you'll need to print out two game boards and then write the 12 different times two times each on the foam shapes or your own cards (so you'll have 2 sets of 12 times for a total of 24 digital times) AND you need to write "Time is Up!" on 5 shapes/cards. Students work in pairs to play and one partner pulls out a digital time and places it on the matching clock on their board.

Time Is Up math game :: *Bunting, Books, and Bainbridge*: Time Game Freebie
Time game: Print out 2 game boards, make 2 sets of 12 digital times on cardboard or foam shapes AND write "Time is Up!" on 5 shapes/cards. Working in pairs, one partner pulls out a digital time and places it on the matching clock on their board. If they have already covered that time up, they return the digital time and their turn is over. If they get a "Time is Up!" they have to return one of the times that they already matched! The winner is the one who fills their card first.

Bright & colorful sensory bags for preschool - hair gel + food coloring & add sight words or letters. Writing letters practice using finger
Colorful sensory bags! I made these and my preschoolers, kids in the church nursery, and my own kindergartner LOVE these. 1/4-1/2 cup dollar store clear hair gel, food color (regular and neon) and freezer quart bags. These are fun in the light box and for color exploration too.
To make these really cool sensory bags, all you need is some hair gel, baggies, and food color. I purchased hair gel from the Dollar Store and used food color that comes in tubes to make the bright colors… Repinned by Apraxia Kids Learning.
