My Little ones often use lots of hands on fun. Here is our list of things we have on hand. **We no longer use them as was written in the document. That was our older school style. When my son was younger I would set up workboxes for him containing some of the items.
Now we use a shelf that is set up in the family room. I cycle things off the shelf after a bit of time and put new things out, or some go on a table, be that the kitchen table, coffee table, etc. All of the kids enjoy the items, not just the littles.
And there are items for the bigger kids as well, like the Think Fun games, a shelf of puzzles, etc.
