I love hands-on, play-based learning – particularly when it comes to learning activities for preschool-aged children! I was thrilled to contribute to the new Three to Five: Playful Preschool ebook (affiliate link) with several of my favorite bloggers! This ebook is full of wonderful activities you can download and complete with your child using household materials. It’s perfect for homeschoolers, and I’ll be using it with my four-year-old this summer. Actually, my eight-year-old is using it to run play preschool for my four-year-old this summer. It’s a great way to keep both girls learning and playing together, all summer long! This $8.99 ebook, (just like the Zero to Two ebook I contributed to along with several of the same bloggers earlier this year) includes several printables, and all of the activities and printables are original – you won’t find them on our blogs. Here’s a fun preview:
Cathy James of NurtureStore created a list of topics that we then signed up for, so the book covers the full range of topics you would expect a preschooler to learn about – from art ideas to pretend play to math, literacy, and science. My preschooler loves to keep busy, and I was looking for some sort of a playful curriculum we could use to give her summer some structure. This ebook is exactly what I needed – and so beautifully photographed! Here are a few of the art activities:
And Math activities:
Plus my favorite of the printables – a fun city scape!
