More Than 300 Kid-Pleasing, Skill-Building, Entertaining Activities from Birth to Age 8

With Parents magazine's Play and Learn, you can entertain your child for hours on end with age appropriate, creative play. Your child will delight in these activities that are perfect indoors and out, on both rainy days and sunny weekends. The book's reader-friendly format lists the required materials, preparation time, and developmental skills that your child will learn. Play and Learn is divided into five convenient sections:
- At Home Fun features arts and crafts made from household items-from paper towel rolls to mismatched mittens-and includes fun recipes for things like finger paint and arts-and-crafts projects for making "stained glass" and personalized paper dolls.
- Workouts tackles great ways to get physical and develop motor skills with body awareness games, climbing, and strength-building exercises, like "Hug-of-War." It also highlights team sports-games kids can play with one another.
- Get Smart devises clever ideas for creative play that will spark your child's imagination and enhance analytical and reasoning skills, like exploring the properties of magnetism and making a United States-shaped pizza. A special section for older kids, "The Way it Was," shows how to recreate special toys from the past-from corn-husk dolls to hand-dipped candles. - Close to Nature explores outdoor games and playtime possibilities in nature such as making leaf creatures or catching shadows.
- Out and About whisks you away with excursions for every neighborhood-- from apple picking and making snow angels to touring a firehouse.

Play and Learn maximizes quality time with the kids, making playtime educational, exciting, and even more special.
