House Designing Project for Toddlers

At Bright Horizons at Corporate Woods (Albany, NY, they did a unique and exciting STEM-focused activity! The children acted like little architects and helped plan the layout for a house using to-scale miniature people and household chairs, beds, and appliances! The kids had a giant sheet that served as the, "Blueprint," for the house and worked to design their favorite setup for a living room, bedroom, kitchen, and more!

An easy and fun design project!

You can do this project too by simply taking a large piece of paper, drawing an outline of what a house might look like in terms of rooms, and then giving children a variety of figures and toys to fill the house with! This activity encourages using logic (a refrigerator would go in the kitchen, a television in the bedroom, etc.) as well as spatial thinking--plus teamwork as children build-up the house together.
