Are your preschoolers staying home this year? Are you lost on what are the best learning activities that your kids will actually love?
If so, this article is for you!
A few helpful tips for preschool at home:
- Pick activities you as a parent enjoy just as much as your child. Kids will pick up on the excitement you have and be a lot more engaged in learning.
- Preschool is all about playing and hands-on learning.
Educational Preschool Activities (that are also fun)
1. Wipe Clean Handwriting Books
These wipe clean books are great for kids who need practice writing out their letters. You can use any washable marker, so they can re-use the books again and again.
2. Construction paper crafts
There are so many different things you can make with construction paper. It gives your preschooler practice cutting out shapes, gluing, and following directions.
Puzzles are another great activity! It helps teach kids problem-solving to try different pieces until they find the right one. We also like these Melissa & Doug letter puzzles because it helps kids with spelling and letter recognition.
4. Dot markers
Dot markers are another fun way to color and use your imagination.
5. Talking Microscope
This talking microscope is one of my favorite activities to do with my kids. It comes with lots of different slides and tells you fun facts about the slide you are looking at.
6. Chalkboard Letter Practice
Practicing letters is another fun thing my daughter likes to do. Instead of regular chalk, we use fun Chalkola liquid chalk markers. They are much brighter than regular chalk and perfect for little kids.
