- Miniatures: I have found plenty of miniatures and small toys to use for my articulation “feely bag”. (There is something about reaching into a bag to pull out an object that totally delights preschoolers.)
- Baby dolls and stuffed animals: One time I snagged about 50 beanie babies for $5. Woo hoo!
- Puzzles and games: Can’t have too many of these!
- Books for all ages and stages.
- Art supplies: stickers, stampers, paints, play doh sets and more.
- Tons of toys for imaginative play and drama props: cars, fire trucks, play food, dustpans, a binocular, dinosaurs, a crawl tube (we talk about inside/outside, through/around) and more! I am always looking for theme-based toy to set up in my play center for my preschoolers.
Old MacDonald Game: My little ones love this. The “babies” are hidden under the haystacks. Children choose a mama, and press her on the barn platform. Mama moos, baas, clucks, neighs or oinks for her baby. Then they press a covered haystack on the platform and listen to the baby. If it’s a match, it plays the Old Macdonald song.Targets? Same/different, big/little, animal vocabulary or just plain open-ended fun.
