Books - Extraordinary Play with Ordinary Things

Extraordinary Play with Ordinary ThingsExtraordinary Play is divided into chapters depending upon which materials you have handy. Got mismatched socks? There's plenty of games to enhance children's eye-hand coordination, balance and many other motor skills.

Got cardboard boxes--string? paper bag? mismatched sock? There are plenty of games for any materials and an appendix in the back telling you which games help which skills. But from a kids point of view, the games are just plain fun. As an occupational therapist who has played these games with kids in many many countries, I can promise that you and yours will be grinning!

Reviews for Extraordinary Play with Ordinary Things:

I've used this book a lot! We've come up with great birthday party activities from this-- or rainy-day boredom busters. One 4-yr-old child who had just had a $400 chuck-e-cheese birthday asked if she could have her party in my back yard next year! The obstacle course suggestions alone are worth buying this book. This book will educate you to look at your recycables in a new way. After reading this-- my own ideas flourished as well. In fact, every item in your house will start to reveal it's play possibilities to you. Anyone who has watched a kid play with a cardboard box or tube for hours will appreciate this book. Some of the things we have made from recyclables and found objects have been played with more than most other toys in our house.

This is definitely the book to have around when the "I don't have anything to do" whinnies hits. I am not exaggerating when I say that the book is packed with great ideas.
