The Magic Box
Magic Box Ideas
The Magic Box is a tool to help children with Separation Anxiety by providing them with an activity, game or toy which serves as a promise of the fun that will happen that day! It is literally a box which is usually decorated by the children and everyday you (the nanny) come, you bring the magic box with an activity or a toy that has to do with an activity for the day.
Shaving Cream (with or without food coloring)
Disposable Cameras and a scavenger hunt list
Sponges and paint
Cookies (Good to give away too!)
Brownies (Good to give away too!)
Flower Unit (Several Ideas in 1)
This list is by no means exhaustive. These are Magic Box activities that I have found successful and that you can use to get you started. But the sky’s the limit! Pinterest is the Magic Box’s best friend! Have FUN!
