Illustrated learning ideas on cards mean short, simple instructions, easy sorting, and quick visual cues to understanding the activity. Great for busy parents who want to spend time with their children rather than with the instructions. Age and subject-specific activities provide parents with ideas tailored to their child s age and developmental level. Little planning is required as most activities set up in moments. The materials are all found in the home, such as paper plates, masking tape, Zip-lock bags, Lego blocks, newspaper, photos, dice, etc. Providing a list of applicable developmental skills (such as language skills, hand-eye coordination, comprehension, and calculation skills) for an activity, offers a parent opportunities to develop or enhance a child s specific skills.
