    This book gives some great ideas for activities to do with kids. It seems specifically written for day care centers, but most of the activities can also be done at home. There's also great advice on how to interact with kids and build their creativity. I especially like that there are recipes for homemade finger paint and play dough that cost a lot less than store-bought. Some of the activities are things that parents would most likely come up with on their own - playing with pots and pans, draw This book gives some great ideas for activities to do with kids.

I especially like that there are recipes for homemade finger paint and play dough that cost a lot less than store-bought. Some of the activities are things that parents would most likely come up with on their own - playing with pots and pans, drawing, sand and water play, filling and emptying a bucket, blowing bubbles. But there are lots of new ideas as well, so this book is definitely worth checking out. Best of all, most of the activities don't require a lot of set-up - I hate it when I have to take 20 minutes to prepare an activity that only holds my daughter's attention for 5 minutes!

    There are some truly giggle-worthy 1970's ideas in this book. Lots of homemade craft and toy ideas that would save you money as you created vs. buying, but that would take hours to make and moments for a toddler to destroy. Also: constant warnings about choking hazards, anyone? I guess it would be good for a daycare setting in which the teachers needed lots of ideas for older two-year-olds and were constantly supervising the play that resulted from this book's ideas.

The book offers helpful ideas like recipes for no-cook Play-doh, no-bake cookies, and some other clever things I can't think of at the moment. It's the first book like this I've read, so I'm not sure how it stacks up to others.

    As a preschool teacher, this is the best book on early childhood education I've read so far. A few things were a bit outdated in terms of current DHS regulations on safety and hygiene, but it was still bursting with good ideas. I also appreciated the reminders about reasonable expectations, i.e. not pressuring two year-olds to share toys or to do complicated art projects that are for the teacher or parent's benefit rather than the child's. It's all in a straight-forward, conversational tone, as As a preschool teacher, this is the best book on early childhood education I've read so far.

It's all in a straight-forward, conversational tone, as if Karen Miller was in the classroom with me, sagely telling me that when a toddler says "uh-oh" it usually means they're about to make a mess.

    It's a good book, but I found that it's geared towards groups of toddlers and maybe a preschool setting. Since I have one child, it's got some good ideas, but I have gotten better ideas from other books for my one kid.

    Great Ideas - geared toward a preschool teacher, but definitely doable at home. Had this from my undergrad training and just pulled it out and was pleasantly surprised that it is useful for parents too. :)

    Busy hands are happy hands. This book has lots of creative play ideas for toddlers that involve easily accessible materials. The ideas are developmentally appropriate and focus on process, not product.

    Lots of great stuff, but I think I need to just buy for those rainy days when I need help.

    I'm always looking for new activities for my 2 year old. This goes beyond the usual arts and crafts ideas. I'm always looking for new activities for my 2 year old. This goes beyond the usual arts and crafts ideas.
