At Sherlock Home we love this idea by @Goodtoknow on how to create bird feeders. They are really simple to make, which means they’re a quick and fun project to do with children of all ages. This is not our idea, so kudos to Jessica Dady and check out their blog post on how you can easily make them.
This is a great indoor game to focus young kids on the sense of touch in a world so focused on the sense of sight. Train their minds to associate information other than just how the object looks. Start by putting interesting objects into containers that a child must reach into and identify by touch. Shoe boxes work well as they are usually readily available, can be easily cut with scissors, and do not let light through. Making the boxes is part of the fun – have the kids decorate them, just make sure to cut out a child-sized hand hole on the side of the box beforehand. Place an item in each box and have your kids take turns guessing what the items are. Encourage questions and offer clues as needed.
