Overview

Toddlers and preschoolers can be difficult to keep busy because their attention spans tend to be short lived. Yet, they are curious and imaginative and so much fun to spend time. Furthermore, most young children just want to be entertained throughout the hours of the day and are eager to learn anything they can.

Now, you too can collaborate with your little one on art masterpieces and decorative crafts, as well as play educational games. Whether you’re a parent, nanny, day care provider, or preschool teacher, you can benefit from this long list of activities to stimulate children’s minds and keep their hands busy for hours.

In this book you will find a wealth of ideas to share with your young child. Some of the activities require your close supervision. Many of the arts and crafts projects will result in beautiful seasonal decorations to display in your home. You will be astounded by the creations you can make with your preschooler, who will, alternatively, be enthusiastic about tapping their imagination, enhancing their knowledge, and most of all, spending valuable time with you.

The 103 activities are split into four main categories that correspond to the four seasons. Many of the projects can be done during any season, but the subcategories are themed. Here are what the subcategories look like:

    It can be very difficult to find or come up with a variety of crafts to keep the little ones busy. This book not only gives you a ton of fun activities, it also lists them by season so you aren’t left with making snowmen in the middle of August. There is also a variety of the types of crafts. Any child would have a blast with this book.

    Coming from a large family, I am always looking for new and fun

    Coming from a large family, I am always looking for new and fun ways to entertain my nieces and nephews. Katherine Smiley has taken tons of great ideas and organized them by season so you always have an activity on hand. Each activity is explained in detail and comes with very easy to follow instructions. It was nice to hear that these ideas came from someone that was a real nanny and had experience with young children. I am sure that I will continue using this book for ideas even after the kids grow up.

    This book is a great help in keeping my little ones occupied. It is divided into seasonal categories which is great also having some crafts that are for either boys or girls. We especially enjoy the castle project. These crafts are also very inexpensive - just regular craft supplies & stuff you find around the house that can be easily recycled.

    I got this book because I recently started babysitting for my neighbors 3 1/2 year old girl. The book has all the crafts and projects broken into different seasons but I have found many of them can be done year round. I like that most of the crafts require things that I already have around the house. One of my favorites is the Step On It craft that required turning her footprint into a snowman. I am loving all the decorations we have created so far. Many of these activities are educational and she is learning so much. I plan on having my older kids create some of these crafts to give to the grandparents for certain holiday's.
