I love to take something my child loves to play with and use it in lots of different ways. This can encourage them to try different ways to play, and lets them learn important skills by doing something they love. If you know a child who loves trucks and cars, try these super transport activities.
Mix grass seed in with potting soil. Fill up a nylon. Tie into segments with string to make a 'caterpillar." Soak in water till saturated. Then let the kids spray it with water every day after and watch it grow. When the grass gets "too long" let the kids give it a "haircut."
