The other activity teachers can suggest is to hide an object. Cut out footprint shapes from paper and arrange them in a path of treasure. Teachers can placed a small item inside a box and children can be challenged to identify the contents by shaking the box. The children can be given cut pictures from old magazines into three or four large pieces. Then children will be allowed to recreate the picture.
