This book contains 365 activities (one for each day of the year) for three- to six-year-olds using things found around the home. It shows parents and day-care providers how to:
  • Save money by making your own paints, playdough, craft clays, glue, paste, and other arts and crafts supplies.
  • Prevent boredom during even the longest stretches of indoor weather with ideas for indoor play, kitchen activities, and arts and crafts projects.
  • Stimulate a child's natural curiosity with fun reading, math, and science activities.
  • Encourage a child's physical, mental, and emotional growth with ideas for music, dance, drama, and outdoor play.
  • Celebrate holidays and other occasions with special projects and activities.
  • Keep children occupied during long trips or cross-town errands.

The Preschooler's Busy Book is written with warmth and sprinkled with humor and insight. It should be required reading for anyone raising or teaching preschool-age children.
