Vacuuming Paper Bits
Here’s an extremely simple and fun activity that children (3yrs and up) can do themselves.
Give your child some paper, scissors, a straw and little container.
Your child can cut the paper into little squares (or other shapes). For those who like learning to cut in straight lines, here’s a downloadable sheet of squared paper to print.)
By sucking through a straw, your child can vacuum up the paper pieces, one by one, and them drop them into the container. (The vacuuming can sometimes make a funny noise, which adds to the entertainment!)
Once you have a pile of papers in your container, try blowing down the straw to make a little snow storm in your container! You might even be able to blow the papers out of the container… and start the game again!
