Early Childhood Activity Bank
All Around My Home
- Gather objects from different rooms or places in the house -- kitchen, bathroom, garage, and so on. Place them out on a table. Let children examine the objects and categorize them by the part of a home in which each object belongs.
- Arrange students into small groups. Assign each group a room in a house. Let children go through old magazines and cut out pictures of items that would be found in that room. Children can paste their cut-outs onto a piece of colored paper. Arrange all of the children's papers to form an entire house of rooms.
- Bring in old household items such as toothbrushes, hairbrushes, sponges, whisks, and so on. Invite children to dip each item in tempera paint and create pictures.
