Fish Cove Invitations

Hello, families! ðŸ‘‹ðŸ¼

Here are a few invitation/activity ideas to do with your crew! Whether you’re taking the homeschooling route or the omg-get-these-kids-something-to-do route, these are some pretty cool options. These were all created with items typically found around the house. Just keep in mind that I (Miss Erin) have no kids, so you will have more kid-friendly items on hand than I. I’ll point out my errors and provide alternatives in the captions.

I will also provide what to look for during each exploration and why it matters. In the end…just let them play! ðŸ™ŒðŸ½ and ALWAYS leave room for questions

Bonus: All of these are just as fun for adults ðŸ‘ðŸ½

Got a “Lazy Susan” lying around (is that P.C.? ðŸ¤”)? Not anymore, you don’t- its a SPIN ART TABLE!!! Tape some paper to it, provide some writing utensils and let the fun begin! You may either spin it for your child or let them spin. They can experiment with how fast or slowly they should spin it to get it to work, and learn what shape it creates.
Throw in some jar lids for different circle-drawing experiences! Keep an eye on that drawing utensil grip. It can be difficult to maintain a firm and productive grip when tracing around an object. Their fingers should be pinching the bottom of the utensil for solid control.



Parents, i give you…MULTI-PERSPECTIVE MAGNET PLAY ðŸ—£

Get two metal trays. Tape on to a box to get it to stand up. Provide magnets and metal. You and your kid can search together around the house for metal objects. Test each object with magnets to see if they will work!

This is a great activity to test the weight of objects. Older kids can even go as far as making a chart. Experiment with thing such as “How many paper clips can one column of magnets hold up before it falls off the pan?” “Why don’t these two magnets attatch?” “Does the height of my magnet columns affect how many objects it can hold?”
