It’s Open Play Saturday, and here are some games to play from home until we can meet again in person. Have fun finding items inside and outside with your family. Click on the links below to print the scavenger hunts.
For an easy sensory station, fill up a bucket, sink or large tupperware container with warm soapy water. You may want to put a bath towel underneath. Add kitchen utensils, small toys, whatever you have handy. Try seeing which items sink and which items float! Or just have fun playing in the bubbles. Send us a photo if you like... we miss seeing your sweet faces!
