My most recent curriculum to review with the Old Schoolhouse Review Crew has been Dr. Craft’s Active Play! Fun Physical Activities for Young Children from Dr. Craft’s Active Play Books. I used this with Sterling (5), Ruby (4), and Charlotte (2), although my older girls and Pierce couldn’t resist joining it a bit as well.
From their website: 8½ x 11 with 130 pages with DVD showing 30 physical activities
This book and DVD set:
- Shows how to make physical activities irresistible.
- Teaches academic concepts through physical activity.
- Includes a chapter of physical activities for infants, 6 months to 15 months of age.
- Includes physical activity ideas for school-age children.
Dr. Craft’s Active Play! Fun Physical Activities for Young Children is available here for $39.00 plus taxes and shipping. It’s set up well enough to work for young new walkers and up, with older children helping with set up and helping the younger children. Each activity took us about 10 minutes to complete, but the kids chose to continue playing long after we finished the first round.
