I love teaching preschool because this is such a fun age when they are discovering the world around them, and making great connections between what they are learning. I found some great sites to print out some fun preschool activities for M2 and just wanted to share everything we’ve been doing this year.
I work with M1 most of the time so I needed to find something for M2 to do. He has plenty of toys to play with but he was looking for his own schoolwork.
I really did feel like I needed to purchase curriculum at this age, I like that he’s learning without sitting down at only a set of workbooks. He’s learning but it’s through hands-on activities which I feel are a more concrete way to learn.
If your preschoolers enjoyed doing these cool activities with you, make sure to check out more of my other activities. You can try my easy slime recipes too!
If you have a preschooler, here are some things they can do on their own to keep them occupied while you are teaching older children or if they just want some kind of work to do. I find that M2 is more motivated to do “school” because his older brother is doing it as well.
