If you’re not a couponer, you immediately toss that pile of weekly coupons right in the recycle bin. I could probably opt out of getting them or something but we just toss them in the recycle bin each week. Well, we received the big weekly stack yesterday and while it sat on the table (before it made it to the bin), a great idea for my kids came to me: Newspaper Seek-And-Find Games. We were running out of things to keep kids busy since this was the last day of holiday break and I was really looking for something crafty for them to do…this was perfect! These homemade seek and find games give my preschoolers practice with scissor cutting skills, gluing skills and also placing pictures in the correct places on the sheet. All preschool activities that are perfect to practice on for similar activities that they do at school. Yay! I love a craft that’s fun and gets them some school practice.
Seek And Find Games For Young Children Using Newspaper Ads:
- glue stick
- white paper
How To Make Seek And Find Games For Your Kids:
Grab all your seek and find games supplies listed above and head to the table.
I grabbed a piece of paper for each of my kids and wrote a few categories on each sheet…for instance: Animals, Food and Drinks. I also wrote how many of each item to find.
Pass out the scissors (kid safe of course), glue sticks and a stack of coupon papers. Explain the seek-n-find game. When they find one of the items from a category, they’ll cut it out and glue it under that specific category! Then just let them start searching.
My kids love playing these homemade, free seek and find games and I love that they are getting practice with following instructions and cutting and gluing! We played a couple different rounds and I made up different categories for each round. Some others search and find games examples would be to find: sauces, pasta, juice etc…just skim through your coupon papers and use categories that you see pictures for.
Do you think your child would enjoy these DIY seek and find games?
