23 July - Imaginary Camping...

Hi there. It's Sumari from EasyHealthyKids.com, and this week our activities focuses on developing fine motor skills, sensory experiences and focus and concentration.

The family: Fred is my headstrong pre-school boy, and Sarah is my sweet little toddler girl.

Art activity - Alphabet smush painting

This mess free alphabet smush painting is a great activity for kids of all ages.

They learn the alphabet, while having a fun sensory experience. You can mix it up by writing different things on the zip lock bags, like numbers or pictures.

Quiet time activity - Hanging socks

I love simple activities that use whatever you have on hand.

This "Hanging Socks" activity only uses some socks, yarn and clothes pins.

It helps to strengthen your child's fine motor skills, while helping them work on focus and concentration. Kids will have fun pinning socks to the makeshift clothesline.

Indoor activity - Camping imaginative play

You just need a few rolls of cardboard, the printable and some imaginary flames to do this camping imaginary activity.

Kids can pretend to camp and toast food at the campfire. You can use torn tissue paper for the flames, or find a flame printable online.

Printable of the week - Roads

Do your kids have lots of play cars but no roads?

Using this roads printable can get them interested in their cars again. Multiple kids can play together, just print a few sets.

Educational activity - Rubberband geo board

Kids can practice their fine motor skills and creativity with the help of muffin tins and rubber bands, using this fun rubberband geo board.

They can practice making different shapes and patterns with the rubber bands.
