Time: 20 - 30 minutes
Materials: Different items from around the house. Suggestions include envelope, ruler, measuring spoon, paint brush, cookie cutter, etc.
Activity: Give your child a list of items to find. The list may be written, pictures, or verbal. Have your child look for the items. When the items are found, talk about them - how they are alike, how they are different, how they are used.
Suggested Script: "Find the soap and toothpaste." They are alike because they are both used to keep your body clean. They are different because the soap is used to clean your skin and the toothpaste is used to clean your teeth."
