Learning at Home

Treasures in a Bag

You Will Need:

Purse or canvas bag and small items (magnets, keys, old credit cards, lipstick, small toys, paint brush, etc.)

Directions:

Put objects in the purse or bag. Then, have your child open the bag and discover the treasures. Talk to your child about what she is finding. Say things like, “What do you call that?” and “What can we do with that?”

Tip:

This is a fun activity for your child to do in a restaurant, while waiting for a table or food. Be sure that objects are large enough that your child will not choke on them.
