Gather containers with a variety of different sizes and shapes of openings, as well as a mix of objects. Have your child fill the containers with the objects, talking about how some objects fit into certain containers but not others.
Freeze water in a variety of household containers to create different sizes and shapes of ice blocks. Challenge your child to build towers or structures using the slippery ice.
Use materials such as cushions, pillows, and blankets to create a fort. Try adding doors, windows, or separate rooms. What works and does not work when you alter your structure?
Use paper towel rolls or other tubes to create a marble run or “roller coaster.” Can you create a turn, drop, or loop-the-loop? Discuss factors like height, speed, materials, etc.
Create the perfect paper airplane. Start with a template online or in a book and make your own modifications. What happens if you make it long and skinny, short and wide, or with flaps that point up?
Take apart an old alarm clock or other electronic device to see how the parts work and interact. Ask for adult permission first.
