Abstract: The growing interest, during the last few years, in the housing needs and preferences of families has been particularly timely in view of the millions of dollars now being spent on housing. The statistical phase of the four regional rural housing surveys, which was recently completed, has made available a fund of information on the kind, scope, and frequency of household activities carried on by farm families in different parts of the country. The studies have also revealed preferences of the homemaker for the location of activities as well as for other house design features.1 Relatively little information was collected in these regional surveys in relation to the home activities of preschool children and the usual location for these activities. In the North Central study, there is a statement, "Children's activities and those adult activities related to children were omitted, not because they were regarded as unimportant, but because the complexity of that problem makes a separate study necessary." 2
