Move with Props

It has been my experience that tots are much more ENGAGED in an activity if they have something to move and manipulate with their hands. Give them a PROP. Now this is just a short list of props and I plan to add more pictures in the future.

List of props to purchase/make/try

  • Hula hoops (various sizes)
  • Pool noodles 
  • 2 X 4’s  
  • Crawling tunnels 
  • Foam shapes 
  • Masking tape 
  • Painters tape 
  • Toy cars 
  • Plastic animals, insects, and other critters
  • Balls (various weights and sizes)
  • Bean bags 
  • Ribbon Rings
  • Shower curtain rings or embroidery hoops 
  • Plastic bottles

  • Scarves 
  • Plastic eggs 
  • Paper plates
