Hammer & Nails

Location: indoor or outdoor

Not everyone feels comfortable bringing real tools into their preschool classroom. Golf tees and styrofoam can be a good substitute to recreate the experience of hammering nails into wood.

The golf tees can be removed to be hammered over and over again.
