How much stuff does your kid collect? How many random items do you have floating around? When you get tired of all those small toys being underfoot you can turn them into a look and find box. That way your kid gets to keep his stuff and you get it off the floor. By re-using common items you get a great game that you can also hang on the wall.
How to make your own Look and Find Box:
o Old shadowbox or old kit box
o Glue Gun
o Random Items
o Index Cards (optional)
o Pictures of Items (optional)
- Visual Scanning
- Visual Figure Ground
Prepare the shadow box or kit box by removing any unnecessary items. Before placing the items in the box, write a list, take pictures or use the index cards. Use the cards, pictures or list as a guide on what to find. Glue the items in the box. You can also make a game of who can find the most yellow items or blue items, etc. in a certain amount of time.
