Apple Preschool Activity

It’s apple week at my son’s preschool and boy is he loving it!

Mom! Today I tasted a YELLOW apple! It was soooo good. I didn’t like the green one though…it was too sour.

Apple preschool activities have been such a hit that I wanted to carry the apple theme right on into our next Breakfast Invitation.

Think about it. Apples can be sorted, graphed, explored and tasted.

What’s not to love about that?!

A Color Words Breakfast Invitation

Grab your white paper roll and markers. We are going to learn color words by moving!

Yup! That’s right!

Your next Breakfast Invitation will get the little people moving as they learn.

Just like going to a brisk walk fires up our thinking, so does hands-on learning for children. The more we get them moving, the more we can engage and rev up the exploration of new ideas.

And the truth is, doing so is easier to do than you may think! And this color words game is a hoot!

Mystery Shapes!

Looking for a way to add some excitement with shapes?

There is something about a sense of prediction and surprise that makes learning shapes a lot more fun than what may be drawn on a worksheet.

In fact, a lot of activities are better off not on a worksheet, and it is my mission to help you create more hand-on learning opportunities in your home.

Truth is, setting activities like this one are even faster than pressing print and waiting for it to come out the printer!
