Toddler's Busy Book contains 365 screen-free activities (one for each day of the year) for one-and-a-half- to three-year-olds using things found around the home. It shows parents, babysitters, and daycare providers how to: —Save money by making your own supplies of “magic mud,” all-purpose bubble solution, homemade face paint, edible egg-yoke paint (for cookies), peanut butter playdough, and ornamental frosting. —Get organized for your toddler by keeping a “baker’s box” full of unbreakable cooking tools in the kitchen your child can help with or play with; make a “busy bag” full of toys and stuffed animals for your child when you take him to the doctor or hairdresser. Or make a “crazy can” full of stuff that’s fun to play with so when you don’t know what to do next, just reach for the crazy can. —Prevent boredom during even the longest stretches of rainy or cold weather with ideas for indoor play like “hide the beanbag,” or making a homemade sandbox (fill a cardboard box or plastic baby bathtub with puffed wheat cereal or foam packing peanuts), or suspend balloons from the ceiling and give your child a plastic baseball bat or a gift-wrap tube to bat the balloons, or set up a “tickle trunk” to hold a variety of hats, wigs, masks and costume jewelry and princess crowns for imaginative play. —Get your child moving by making a “toddler obstacle course,” or by paint-dancing, or by holding a “mini olympics,” or by dancing (when the music starts) and falling down (when the music stops), or Jell-O jumping (in the bathtub). —Learn how to expand your child’s arts and crafts horizons by learning how to make a “popcorn picture” (with popcorn, construction paper, and a glue stick); a “gift-wrap collage”; fingerpaint in the bathtub, or make an “apple smile” (with a red apple and peanut butter). —Help children learn to have fun in the kitchen making fruit popsicles, zoo sandwiches, “mud balls” (using peanut butter and honey), “ants on a log” (using celery, peanut butter and raisins), and peanut butter sculptures (they’re fun to make and fun to eat). —Get your child started with music and rhythm by making a coffee can drum, a kazoo (starting with an empty toilet paper roll), or inviting your child to “strum” on corrugated cardboard with a spoon, —Teach your child about colors, numbers, letters and body parts: cut an apple open and count the seeds—then eat the apple slices, or play the color game in the supermarket (identifying fruits and vegetables of different colors), or ask your child to point to different body parts as you name them, or pour sand into a pie plate and ask your child to draw letters in the sand. —Celebrate holidays and birthdays with special projects and activities by making Halloween face paint, a Thanksgiving Turkey (starting with a small paper plate), a “Jack o’ Orange, a “stars and stripes” sponge painting, a shamrock necklace, a birthday memory book, valentine cookies, or a Rudolph sandwich. —Make car trips and walks around the block more fun by teaching your child nursery rhymes and finger plays, including “Five Little Monkeys” (use fingers to indicate the number of monkeys), or recite “Walking Through the Jungle” while taking a walk and miming the actions; or, recite a familiar nursery rhyme and pause when you come to the rhyming word; see if your child can fill in the blank. —Teach your child practical skills like picking up all the stuffed animals (or toys) on the floor and throwing them into a laundry basket (you can say, “Let’s play “basket bear!”) or washing vegetables (it’s like washing your hands), or by washing the floor with a sponge and soapy water in a bucket (which turns your child into your helper). —Lure your child to bed at night with a “jungle safari” which involves searching for stuffed animals in the bedroom with a flashlight.

Functional Fitness for Older Adultsis an illustrated guide for activity professionals working with adults over the age of 65--especially those who are unable to complete activities of daily living because of poor functional fitness levels. This guide provides you with physical activity programs that are proven to be both safe and effective for improving the functional performance levels of your participants as well as improving their health-related quality of life. The guide includes a variety of specialized activity programs that are developed to meet the specific needs of older adults. They are designed to improve upper- and lower-body strength, balance, range of motion, and functional performance. Each exercise program is approximately 20 to 30 minutes long and works easily with busy schedules, a variety of participants'' needs, and institutional budgets. Specific guidelines are included for working with older adults with arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, depression, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, osteoporosis, or stroke. Extensive research has verified that the guidelines and programs are safe and will result in significant functional gains for most participants. There are nine activity programs to choose from. Three are basic strength training programs that are designed for different fitness levels, with each program including exercises to strengthen the major muscle groups needed for performing daily activities. One program is a walking and wheeling program for cardiovascular conditioning. The five remaining programs address specific functional needs, disabilities, and health concerns, including balance and mobility problems, incontinence, and dementia. These five programs may be offered in conjunction with one of the three strength training programs. Most of the programs may be conducted either on an individual basis or in a group setting, and both seated and standing exercises are included. These nine cost-effective programs offer safe and effective strategies for developing the functional performance levels of you participants. The functional fitness programs enable you to improve the quality of life for your older adult population, help those who are functional to maintain or improve their functional level, enable others to regain the ability to participate in activities that are meaningful, and increase the degree of independence for most. The general fitness programs provide an easy-to-difficult progression: -Lift to Function increases lower-body strength. -Squeeze to Function increases upper-body strength. -Strengthen to Function increases both lower- and upper-body strength. -Walk ''n'' Wheel to Function improves cardiovascular fitness. -Balance to Function reduces participants'' chances of falling. The specialized programs enable you to address the specific functional needs of those with decreased ability to walk, incontinence, and dementia; and those who are wheelchair- or bed-bound also have specialized programs: -Step Up to Function improves circulation and strength needed for walking or climbing stairs. -Hold It to Function targets specific muscle groups to help reduce incontinence. -Remember to Function helps decrease behavioral disturbances such as wandering and agitation in those who have dementia. -Move to Function is designed for those who cannot stand and are bedridden because of muscle weakness or illness. Functional Fitness for Older Adultsincludes materials that make it easy for you to conduct the programs. All exercises are organized into warm-up and cool-down exercises, upper-body exercises, lower-body sitting exercises, lower-body standing exercises, and seated modifications. Included are individual and group balance activities, foot exercises, and walking and wheeling activities. All exercise descriptions list the muscles worked and instructions for performing the exercise. Many also feature adaptations to the exercise, suggestions for those needing more of a challenge, and ideas for making the activities fun. You''ll find illustrated summary sheets to use as handy program guides for each of the nine programs. These sheets can be easily photocopied, then enlarged and laminated to create a "cheat sheet" for conducting each session. As those who have worked with older adults know, this population is notorious for not wanting to exercise, yet exercise is often the only thing that enables them to retain or regain a reasonable quality of life. The guide provides information on motivating frail or potentially frail elders to participate and keep participating: -Using goals and assessments to motivate -Strategies that encourage new residents of group living accommodations to join exercise programs -Vocabulary to use that will help you avoid turning potential participants off to the idea of physical activity -Turning exercise sessions into social occasions -Rewards and other types of positive reinforcement The exercise instructions, abundant illustrations, and program guides put all the information you need to teach exercises and lead programs at your fingertips. Functional Fitness for Older Adultsis the most comprehensive guide you''ll find to build your repertoire of programs for elders who want to improve their overall quality of life by increasing their physical abilities.
