This activity is about as simple as it gets for set up. Go through your toolbox, mason jars and junk drawer to gather as many nuts and bolts as you can find and put them in a bowl. Make sure there are matching sizes, so kids can fit them together like puzzles. You can also include keys and locks in your nuts and bolts play.
