The construction area is a hub of action. There is so much learning happening in this space, from building towers-to creating cities. The work being done here is empowering the engineers of the future.
Items for this space can be particularly expensive. A quality set of unit blocks can set you back hundreds of dollars. You will also find the cost of building accessories, such as pretend people, vehicles, and building sets, starts to add up.
Below you will find a collection of Free and DIY blocks/building sets, and building accessories that you can create for a fraction of the cost. I'm highlighting some of my favorite ideas from around the web, and ideas that have been shared in our FB Community.
Preschoolers need a variety of activities to keep them engaged in learning.
This activity is excellent for fine motor development, and as a bonus it's budget friendly, uses recyclables, and is simple to make.
Dramatic Play is an important part of the education of young children. When children are pretending, they are developing essential social-emotional skills! They are also practicing many other important skills such as math, literacy, and physical development.
One of the main purposes of the housekeeping space is for young children to practice activities that happen around the home-including cleaning!
Kids love helping around the house, and they also love using real objects.
With a little bit of elbow grease, and some basic tools you have around the home you can easily create your own child sized mop (or broom) from a regular sized one at the dollar store for only $1.
