Each activity has been graded on
Each activity is graded on the adult input required. There are two categories:
- Independent activity. Your child does not need adult help to complete the activity.
- Supervision needed. Some level of adult supervision or help is needed in order to complete the activity. This could be because it is a messy activity. The activity could either: be dangerous without supervision, materials could cause damage without supervision or the activity is difficult and would not be completed without adult help.
These guidelines are based on a toddler participating in the activity. Remember the emphasis is on you playing with your child and both having fun. Independent activities can be made into a Busy Box activity. If your child explores their world by putting things in their mouth then closer supervision will be needed.
