Let your child experiment with this activity.
What You Need:
• Empty paper towel roll
• Hard cover book
• Collection of objects to experiment with
• Container to hold objects
What To Do:
- With your child, collect a variety of objects from around the house and place them in a container. The variety will show your child that different objects have different abilities (e.g., small ball, tape roll, jingle bell, toy car, etc.). Do not use small objects that are choking hazards.
- Place the paper towel roll under the book, creating a little ramp.
- Place the small objects into the paper towel roll and have your child watch what happens. Give your child the opportunity to experiment and come up with ideas on what will happen (e.g., which ones roll and which will slide down the ramp.)
