300 Three Minute Games: Quick and Easy Activities for 2-5 Year Olds Reviews
I guess I'd hoped for some new, more creative activities and games. Many of these are just simple little things that myself, and I'm sure others, find themselves doing naturally. There were some new ideas, though, and I'm sure it might be a good resource for others.
Just like promised thank you
This is empowering for the brain-dead parent, too exhausted to keep playing a happy and enthusiastic pre-school teacher. My very strong-willed five year old boy needed no encouragement. After one game, he picks the book up whenever bored and we proceed to play. The games actually energize me, so it's a win-win with hardly any difficulty on my part. We like the five-hundred five-minute game book, too..
Being a busy mother of 3 children under the age of 5, it can be easy to lose perspective. This book is a Godsend! It reminded me to use that sock as a puppet which my 4 year old puts in his "workbox". Every day they ask for a "raisin story"! (that's a certain story in the book) And, just today my 2 yr. old was saying "goodnight" to everything in his room. (taken from "Goodnight Moon) It's a good source of entertainment, precious moments, and not to mention-lots of laughs!!!
I bought this book hoping for some innovative games or activities for my kids. Instead, I found the vast majority of the ideas to be either things that any parent of a 3 year old already knows (let child apply stickers to paper, let child draw outside with chalk, read a book to the child, put your hand in a sock and use it as a puppet, rolling and throwing a ball with the child) or 5-6 line poems that the parent is supposed to memorize and sing with the child. Do not waste your money.
It is full of handy, quick ideas. Also, while the ideas are being used, our children are improving intellectual, motor, and social skills not to mention the bonding that takes place between parent and child.
