Preschool Activities

Teaching and entertaining a preschooler at home can be fun and inexpensive. All you need is some imagination! Recently, I received a nice prize pack from BlogSpark. Inside were some large sheets of paper that were used for packing. I took one, straightened it out, and had Titus lay on it. I traced around him with a pencil. When he got up, I traced over the pencil with a black Sharpie and drew the lines where his shirt, socks, and shorts ended. Then I let him color and decorate it any way he wanted. He decided to make himself as a member of the Wiggles. When he was done, I cut out the paper Titus and we taped it to the wall.  It was cheap to do and he was thrilled with his paper Titus. It kept him busy for close to 30 minutes with no mess. It helped with skills such as observation, colors, body parts, and drawing.
