Another hard day at the office


Putting your preschooler to work

Do you need a cheap and easy idea for a rainy day at home with your preschooler?  Give them their own “office”.  This activity is good for at least twenty minutes of play.  Maybe you’ll even have time to fold laundry!

All you need is a little desk (a coffee table would work too), and some office supplies. Here are some suggested items to get your started:

  • Paper
  • Pencils
  • Stapler
  • Tape
  • Glue stick
  • Hole punch
  • envelopes
  • Scissors
  • Flowers
  • A cup of “coffee”
  • A toy computer

If you’re working over white carpet, I’d advise not to include a pencil sharpener.  I learned that the hard way.


Here’s another arrangement from the archives.  Nobody but me knows it, but that Bob the Builder computer went to Goodwill a long time ago.  Shhhh!  It’s a secret.
