5 Preschool Activities to do at home

I love having a preschooler at home – T turned 3 in March and she won’t start preschool until September so we are doing some fun preschool play and learning at home with her.

5 Preschool Activities to do at home


Last week these fantastic ideas were linked up to Tuesday Tots that we’ve been trying this week at home.

Explore emotions with your preschool and help with pre-writing using a chalk board.

Make your own sidewalk chalk paint and get squeezing to create pavement rainbows – see Tiny Tots Adventures for the recipe.

Help your child develop their pre-writing skills with a rainbow salt tray – I love the effects on the light table, but don’t worry if you haven’t got one Where Imagination Grows shows how effective it is without the light table as well.

Playing with play dough is a preschool stapple and this Invitation to Create Play Dough Fish from Fantastic Fun and Learning is perfect for this time of the year.

Work on maths skills with our fun Frog Maths Game.

    This is awesome! I have 2 of my own and 2 foster kiddos (5yrs, 3yrs and two 2yr olds!) that will LOVE these activities.

    After 23 years as an in-home preschool teacher/day care provider, it’s nice to see some fresh, new ideas!
