Play ideas with a 5-year-old

(1:32 mins) Play for 5 year olds play is still a very important part of their development. Although they may be at preschool or school during the day, they still need opportunities and the freedom to play. This may be jumping on the trampoline, make a cubby house with sheets and pegs or getting messy with finger paint and slime. Simple science experiments and cause and effect activities will be particularly interesting to this age group.
