I have based appropriate age ranges by experience with my son, starting with his age when we first tried the activity and estimations of the future.
You know your child best. Consider his or her abilities when choosing an appropriate activity. You will probably find many activities that your child could enjoy at an earlier age as well as activities that might need to wait for awhile. When I’m searching online, I tend to scan activities in his age group as well as in both the previous and upcoming age group.
Preschool (4 -5 years)
**I am also trying to backtrack to include activities from J’s early days, so those early age groups will be gaining activities over time still too. Each activity is both categorized by age group and the post date reflects J’s age at that time. (I’m backposting those infant/baby posts…. for now at least. Hopefully this isn’t too confusing to new visitors.)
