Tubular Tunnels:
Take cardboard tubes from wrapping paper or from tin foil/wax paper. Hold them at an angle to the floor and drop marbles down them. (Golf balls work great if your cardboard tubes are big enough) It is fun to watch them come shooting out the other end!

Please note: This is an activity for a child who has outgrown putting things in the mouth.

Circle Safari:

For Preschoolers
Find a circle in your toy chest that rolls and bounces.
Find 4 circles on your toy truck.
Look on the wall for a circle that ticks and has numbers on it.

For Older Kids
Name something that you drink out of that’s round on top. When your child guesses a cup, ask her why she thinks the opening is circular. Explain that when you tilt a glass for drinking, the liquid comes out in a thin stream. To demonstrate, have her try to drink out of the flat side of a square plastic container.

Find something round that helps you open the door. Ask her if it would be harder or easier if the doorknob were a triangle or square. Take an orange and a banana and have her pretend they are doorknobs, holding them in midair. Which one is easier to turn in a circle? Explain that the round orange best fits the shape of her hand.

Name something round that gives off light. A light bulb is round, you can explain, because the shape allows the light to shine equally in all directions.
