DIY projects with preschoolers

The great thing about preschoolers is that they're starting to learn to use their hands. And they're able to do so many more things than even a toddler can. So this is a great time to show them how to hammer in a nail, or how to use a screwdriver, how to even install a light bulb or change a battery in their own flashlight. All these things we take for granted sometimes and skills, we don't realize that our kids won't learn unless we teach them how to do that. You can take it even further and make forts inside. You can make seesaws outside. There are so many amazing things. And again, if you're looking for inspiration, Built By Kids has a lot there to encourage you. We just want our children to be creative and be skilled.
