What's In a House?

We've been stuck inside because of sickness the past week, so what better activity than to design our own dream house!

With the help of the IKEA catalog, the kids each chose furniture for different rooms in the house.  It was fun to see what they thought was important for each room, and a good opportunity to discuss with Amy (2 yrs. old) especially the different functions of different rooms of the house.

I just drew a large house with four boxes for rooms, although you could add more stories/rooms to fit the interest and attention span of your child.

Letting preschoolers do the cutting and pasting is great fine motor practice too!
