Encourage kids to explore, experiment and invent with kids’ activities that promote critical and creative thinking in young minds. Every few minutes, blow a whistle and have them rotate energy-busting activities that are set up around the house. They can bounce, tumble and even bowl until they’re all tired out. From building block to kid-friendly circuits & cooking items, Target has a wide variety of kids’ activities toys for all stages of a child’s development. Gather stuffies around a picnic table in the yard and have kids teach a lesson in ‘culinary arts’ with Play-Doh, slime or play food. If it’s too chilly outside, set up their teaching station in the kitchen. Go micro! Create an awesome small-living setup with furniture and appliances that are kid sized. You can give them pretend tasks that mimic home life. Go off-road inside using cones as ramps and giant blocks as guardrails, help them create an indoor racecourse for remote control vehicles. This activity is just as epic outside, too. Keep kids learning even when they’re not in the classroom. Assign special activity areas at home for fun twists on all their favorite subjects—like gumball-making science or coding started kits. Toddler STEM toys like LEGO building blocks and vocabulary flash cards lay the foundation for the school curriculum, while helping kids develop their fine motor skills. The next level of toys makes sure that a child is exposed to logical thought and inquiry from an early age. Or have your young director dream up a plot and capture it on a smart phone. They can build scenes with craft supplies and hire action figures and dolls as their star actors. Let your kid’s imagination run wild with different activities and innovative ideas. Take kid-friendly activities with them and let them that learn problem solving and having fun can go hand-in-hand!
