Why GAMES for Potato Heads?  
Can't they just PLAY with them the way they were meant to be?


Well sure they could.......but they don't!  Evenually the children become bored with them.  Some might say they "outgrow" them.  I say, just give them more to DO with them!

I observed that there was at least one child who would take this bin out each day.  Once the bin was out, it attracted several more children.

Many of the children enjoyed making the most silly combinations as they could.

But then....the "stages of potato head making" would happen.  You know how this goes right?

Stage 1:  Make silly combinations and giggle!

Stage 2:  Use the  pieces to make silly combinations on their OWN heads (i.e. try to wear the glasses or the hats)

Stage 3:  Tickle friends with the Potato Head arms.

Stage 4:  Turn the Potato Head arms into T-Rex claws and chase friends around the room.

Stage 5:  Toss the Potato Head pieces into bin from across the room.

Sound familiar?  Mhmmm...the stages are real!  What did I do when I saw Stages 4-5 begin?

I could have shut down the play in the following ways:

"That's not how we use Potato Heads.  Time to put them away."

"Walking feet!  Walking feet!" (followed by a time away when the little T-Rexes don't turn back into children when called).

"If you're not going to use the Potato Heads "correctly", then we won't be able to play with them anymore."

Each of the above responses would be based on trying to control the children's actions rather than controlling the environment.

Instead, I created some math process skill developing tools to add to the Potato Heads and guess what happened?

We needed MORE Potato Heads!  The tools and games provided a challenge for the children who were a bit bored after a few minutes of making silly combinations with them and encouraged them to play together.
