On each activity card, we have provided directions, a list of materials, tips, guided questions, extended learning ideas and recommended reading. These can be used to help enhance your child’s experience, but you may find your child takes the prompts and materials and goes in a completely different direction. Creativity is welcome and encouraged!
The activities included in this kit are appropriate for most 3-12 year-olds. However, you know your child’s abilities better than anyone. Adapt activities, as needed, to encourage independence while keeping your child safe. Parental supervision will be needed for younger children.
