5 ways with creative crates…Great for motor skills, collaborative games, language activities and so much more.
Is it a house, a hotel or even a hospital? Why not create a mini, enclosed environment? Stack the crates neatly on top of each other to create walls. Drape with multi-textured fabrics and secure with giant pegs for gross and fine motor development.
The children can line up the crates to create a raised platform, including planks as a way up and down. As these crates are lightweight, children can build their own balance trails. Encourage use of key coordination skills as they navigate their journey.
