Golf Tees and Scrubbies = so many skills!

I came up with this idea when I was a nanny and needed an easy activity to keep the kids entertained in the back seat of the car. Two simple ingredients: golf tees and dish scrubbies... Just put them out in a tray and see what happens! This one is great for fine motor development and color sorting--if you can find colored golf tees, they'll poke those tees into the color-coordinated scrubbie. Counting happens naturally (or with your gentle, appropriate guidance), and they love lining up the tees, so you've got the potential for creating patterns as well. Older kids also like to use the tees as legs and arms as they create various critters. Such a fun and simple (and super cheap) activity.

Do you have similar activities that are inexpensive and provide tons of skills?  Leave them in the comments below!
