Inexpensive Simple Activities
To Do With Your PreTeen

PreTeen Play activities include:

  • Stamp Collecting
    Collect stamps from mail. Use your mail and junk mail as a resource. There are many unique stamps that arrive in the regular mail. Use the stamps as a starting place to research about the topic of the stamp. A trading card insert for a three ring notebook would be one way to store them.
  • Treasure Hunt
    Hold a treasure hunt with clues. Leave notes around the house or yard that give the next clue. Do this about ten times until the last clue takes them to the prize.
  • The Budgeting Money Game
    Making a game out of budgeting money. Find out ways to work with your child to develop money skills.
  • Nature Walk
    Take a walk with your child at a park or in nature. Listen to them as they talk. Time away from all of the technology is becoming increasingly important. Be sure to turn off the cell phone during this time.
  • Car Activities
    Find out car activities you can play with your children to keep them thinking while you are traveling.
