Incomplete Activities

Incomplete Activities is a way to create a teaching opportunity by setting up an activity with some but not all of the items necessary to complete the activity. For example, brushes may be left out of an art activity or cups left out of snack time.

When using insufficient materials, it is important that you create a situation where your child doesn't interpret the missing materials as a mean trick, but rather as something overlooked or unavailable.
