Button excavating is a simple sensory, digging activity for toddlers and preschoolers. A quick and easy indoor activity that's practically no-prep. Make sure to play with your child during this activity, as the buttons can be a choking risk.
Many good pirate ideas at the preschool level - I-Spy bottles, turning a P into a pirate, pirate snacks, etc. I just love the I-spy bottles idea! How great would this be to tie into digging for fossils!---Good possibility for the activity boxes?
