Tips and Activities for Parents at Home with Kids

When schools close, parents may need to be their child’s teachers and play partners. Finding the right activities to do with your child can be hard. You may have trouble deciding what activities are good for your child's learning. It can also be hard to find activities that are fun and easy to do at home.

The activities you will find here have been picked by the teachers at the University of California, Davis Early Childhood Lab School (ECL). The activities included here were chosen with toddlers and preschoolers in mind. Each activity includes information to help you select the right activities for your own needs. We describe how it works and how it helps children’s learning.

Thank you for visiting! We hope you find lots of fun things to do.
