Helping children explore the scientific method, creating conversations about weight and numbers, and doing it all inexpensively is a lesson worth teaching. Whether you homeschool or supplement your child’s learning at home, this DIY toy scale made out of a hanger is simple and engaging. You can make it in 3 simple steps!
Use the hanger scale to compare the weights of objects and discuss terms like ‘greater than,’ ‘less than,’ heaviest,’ and ‘lightest’ with your preschool child at home. It is a fun toy for your child to use in their pretend play as well.
