Stretch and strengthen your child’s mastery of materials and creative confidence, while encouraging problem-solving, critical thinking, decision making, and iteration.
Each art & play activity will provide a little math, literacy, science, and community connection for children ages 3-8 with plenty of variations and extensions for younger and older kids.
This guide contains five days of activities that take you from sunrise to sunset with morning and afternoon rituals, supply lists, and lots of opportunities for creative expression.

Wee Readers & Writers Wednesday has a literacy focus. What can we draw on these different shaped papers?
Together Thursdays has a social studies focus. What can we make with cardboard tubes and string?
Free Fridays has an extra dose of process art goodness. What can we build with these recycled materials?
