#easyplayidea - ten

Today's #easyplayidea is another cardboard creation but the idea I'm sharing isn't mine. It was actually a Christmas gift made by my brother-in-law who is a high school science teacher. With his permission, I'm re-sharing his idea here. He called it a vortex cannon, the rest of the family called it 'cool'!

Today's #easyplayidea is another simple one - a DIY cardboard house! I've made several of these now and you really are only limited by your imagination as you can make it any shape or size. It can be a house like the one we've made or a castle or a city skyline or a mountainous hideout, anything really and the best bit? When you're finished playing, it can be stored flat, out of the way ready for next time.

#easyplayidea - eight

Today we had an extra visitor at our house and we made up a batch of sandy cloud dough but after quickly realising our play tub was not quite big enough for four pairs of hands, I decided to set up another simple invitation for them all to enjoy. Our #easyplayidea today was to create their own zoo playmat - a perfect activity for mixed ages.

#easyplayidea - seven

Our #easyplayidea series continues today with some multi-step process art. I've done this art activity a few times with preschoolers but not with my own children. Salt painting is simple to do and another great way to explore how different colours are made much like our #easyplayidea from yesterday
