These glitter apple prints are a great fall or winter project to do with your preschoolers. Materials: apples, liquid glue, food coloring, glitter, paper. Mix some glue with an equal part water (an almost-empty bottle works well) and add a few drops of food coloring. Cut your apples in half. To make the prints, dip […]
I taught this hot and cool colors lesson to some very eager pre-K’s. They’ve been learning about hot and cool colors, so we incorporated that as we made TONS of leaves! This project doesn’t require very many materials, and is appropriate for kids at lots of different levels. I think it would work for kids […]
We explored the new interactive appbook about a Little Lost Note that was on a mission to find herself. Through this self discovery she has a chance to try on lots of different musical sounds and your kids get to play the instruments she encounters along her way. Such a whimsical story that leaves children […]

Dress up is always a favorite around here, no matter the occasion. Today we made this simple, but cool masks using only some basic supplies. Maybe you’ll be able to tell (or maybe not!) we were inspired after a talk about how Eric Carle might make his artwork in some of our favorite books, like […]
I think it’s fun to introduce kids to art history in a variety of ways! Luckily, here in Philly, we have one of Claude Monet’s paintings featuring his famous waterlilies. After seeing the painting in person, and looking at some of his other paintings online (like my favorite one at MoMA), we decided to make […]
We recently made these “pinch pot monster texture projects” in my classroom, and it was such a fun project! I think the lessons involved can easily be implemented at home too. The project came about because we were learning about texture in art class. There’s no better way to cement an idea than to actually […]
Half the fun of Thanksgiving is in the preparation, right? Make these funny little pies with your kids in anticipation of the holiday weekend! We used small paper plates, paint, construction paper, pencils, glue and scissors to make these mini play pies. You probably have all these things around the house already! First decide what […]
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 […]
A new 100 dollar bill went into circulation last month (October 8, 2013 to be exact). It was estimated that the currency costs 12.6 cents to make with a special blue ribbon woven into the middle of the bill. We wanted to learn a little about the spiffy new $100 bill so we did a […]
Tic-tac-toe is an easy first game to teach your preschooler. Practice taking turns and following simple rules. You can use popsicle sticks and rubber bands to make this portable tic-tac-toe board and play with alphabet cereal x’s and o’s. Take four popsicle sticks and use four rubber bands to fasten them together into a tic-tac-toe […]
Whether you’re looking for a fun fall activity or something to accompany a spider study, these spider webs will be just the thing. You will need liquid glue, wax paper, and glitter. Trace the shape of your spider web on the wax paper. Make sure your lines are thick and solid; some of the ones […]
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 […]
This activity is great for more advanced preschoolers to practice their cutting skills. You’ll need paper, a pencil, and scissors. Starting in the center of a piece of paper, draw a spiral line. Don’t make the circles too close together. Go all the way to the edge. Starting at the edge, carefully cut on the […]
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 […]
Bath time is a fantastic opportunity to bond with your child. Moreover, in our house, we always try to make bath time as fun and educational as possible! One way that we do this is through our choice of bathtub toys. We are incredibly lucky as we have just had our bathroom remodeled so there […]
Make these pokey, adorable toothpick porcupines with air dry clay and toothpicks. We made two different kinds, a “regular” porcupine, and a rainbow porcupine! You’ll need air dry clay (we used 2 different brands, both worked great) toothpicks markers For a rainbow porcupine, you’ll start by coloring toothpicks in any […]

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 […]
Concentration is a great game for helping children build their recalling skills, but I don’t like paying the price for store bought games. So, as I usually do, I try to make my own version at a fraction of the price. Instead of one game, I decided to make 4 different versions of this classic […]
