Item description for Do-It-Yourself Early Learning: Easy and Fun Activities and Toys from Everyday Home Center Materials by Jeff A. Johnson & Tasha A. Johnson...

Making learning a hands-on experience, Do-It-Yourself Early Learning shows home child care providers how to find and use many of the inexpensive—and often overlooked—building, home-repair, and construction materials available at local hardware stores and home centers to create fun activities and toys that promote play, exploration, and discovery.

This innovative guide takes teachers on a journey through the aisles of the local home center to help them find creative ways to teach young children to build, interact, and learn from a wide variety of materials—from plumbing and electrical supplies to paints and hardware items.

Reviews - What do customers think about Do-It-Yourself Early Learning: Easy and Fun Activities and Toys from Everyday Home Center Materials?

Good ideas overall, but be wary of the use of PVC in some projects  May 31, 2007
I picked up this book from the library and was impressed with the variety of activities listed in the book. The descriptions are good and easy to follow.
The only reservation I have is the use of PVC in some of the projects. PVC is not safe to use aroung kids, since they might chew/mouth the parts.
The Most Used Resource Book I Have ( and I have lots)  Nov 21, 2006
I purchased Do It Yourself Learning after I heard Jeff's presentation at our State Childcare Conference. The book is so well thought out. Jeff and Tasha share loads of EXCELLENT activities to do INEXPENSIVELY with children. A really handy feature is they tell you the mistakes they made during their learning process, and ALL of the projects have been tested by the children that spend their days at Jeff and Tasha's Family Daycare, so you know children love these activities. The most incredible of the projects cost me $15.00 to make and gave my preschool children literally HOURS and HOURS of hands-on learning and fun. Jeff KNOWS what children love, and the best part is that he shares it with everyone!
I have done roughly 40 of the projects/activities in this book and ALL were a hit and earned a chorus of "Can we do this again?" from my preschoolers.
So many toys available at toy stores rob children of their imagination -- they all make noise, or move on their own. Jeff's "toys" really engage children and bring out their creativity and imagination. I have owned this book for the shortest amount of time of all my resource books, and it is by far the most used. Thanks Jeff!
