We’re having a fancy Fall tea party, and we used leaves (which are so abundant in my yard!) and Sharpie paint pens to make some personalized placecards for our guests! I must say, I was so impressed by how these markers worked on an organic surface! We doodled on some leaves, wrote names of our […]

Make your own it-really-works diy play telephone with styrofoam cups and string! Here’s how. In the bottom of each cup, poke a small hole (a very sharp pencil works well; this is a good part for an adult to do). Thread one end of a 2-3 foot length of string through the hole in each […]

A great activity to work into your preschool letter lessons is Rainbow Letter Tracing. The idea is for the preschooler to trace the same letter several times with different colors to get the hang of how to write that letter. They create a rainbow of colors on the letter. It’s a great way to get […]

YAY!!! for warmer weather! Now that spring has sprung and we’ve started shedding our layers of sweaters, jackets, scarves, and gloves, I’ve been on the lookout for fun outside activities for my creative preschooler. While my 3-year-old enjoys painting, all those name brand paints can be a little pricey. So, I scoured the internet […]

I love homemade preschool learning activities that recycle materials that I already have lying around my house and that are super easy to make, like this egg carton color sorting activity. By repurposing an egg carton with a little paint, my daughter now has an activity that can be used over and over […]
I love preschool learning activities that I can customize many, many different ways and activities that don’t break the bank. In my previous life as a preschool teacher, we often did this Twizzlers activity. Not only can you purchase the licorice for $1 at the local dollar store and get enough licorice strands for a few […]
I’m always trying to find new ways to help my 3-year-old daughter increase her writing skills. Unfortunately, the activities and books are either too pricey, use too much paper (and ink, if I print it from my computer), or they are bulky. So I came up with this portable and reusable letter tracing activity […]
I love, love, love easy preschool projects that find creative ways to reuse unusable objects around the house (can we say FREE materials??). Since I have a nice collection of CDs and DVDs that are so scratched that they no longer work I thought we would give it a try. I did not try […]
Lately, I’ve really been focusing on helping my daughter strengthen her fine motor skills. I search the internet daily, looking for ideas and activities that appear fun enough to entertain my “can’t sit still” 3-year-old while at the same time having educational and/or developmental benefits. When I came across this on Pinterest, I thought I’d give […]
If your prewriting preschooler is anything like my 3-year-old daughter, s/he will sign most cards with beautifully chaotic and incoherent scribbles (as seen below in the beautiful “letter” my preschooler wrote for a thank you card. However, I decided to make the process of sending out cards much easier by following the same line […]

As soon as all the turkey from Thanksgiving had settled, I hurried to pull out all our Christmas decorations, as I do every year. However, as I dug to the very back level of the garage to get to the Christmas decor that hasn’t seen sunlight since last Christmas, I was startled to see […]
