Preschool Garden Play Packet
Homeschooling older children with a preschooler can be challenging, but I wanted to include some learning experiences through play for my little one.
This garden play packet is one of several other play packets for preschool which I've created this past year!
This one is probably my favorite because of the subject. My little one is so excited about seeds and the seed to plant cycle this spring from some other experiences we've had with seeds and plants. We're growing a garden together and she's noticing seeds in the food we eat as well.
This packet turned out so cute and she loves all the garden themed pieces, especially these Farmer's Market match-ups! Match up packets to plants, count and match plants to numerals! Store in your seed pack envelopes! These and more fun games are available here.
Montessori Fruit Peeling and Cutting
In this learning set up, work with your preschooler on both peeling and slicing fruit. Plus, tie in a great piece of literature featuring fruit!
What I love about the Montessori method, which I'm learning more about, is the simplicity it lends to learning. You can do montessori preschool activities in your own home. They are practical and essential for our babies.
In this learning activity, I wanted my baby to practice the everyday skill of peeling and slicing fruit. (This is a no brainer, really.) Montessori encourages us to teach our babies everyday tasks.
Montessori Nature Jars
I like to bring the outdoors in and so do my babies.
They're always picking flowers -even in places they shouldn't. Haha!
So, my preschooler and I recently put together some nature jars full of things she found around our own backyard!
These are a great addition to your nature area or your Montessori area.
Plus, they're practically free to make. Ready to explore some nature up close with your little one?
We're studying animals in anticipation of our upcoming visit to the big zoo! This will be the first time for both my babies to visit a large scale zoo. We thought they'd enjoy some animal exploration before we go so they'll have some background and it won't be so overwhelming. I added some wild animal books into our preschool Montessori area in our living room to employ curiosity and I also made these quick little picture cars. I wanted to share my cards with you so you can use them with your kiddos as well.
Spring has sprung a seed study at our home and not only have we been reading tons of books about seeds, plants, stems, flowers, roots and fruits, we're making art with seeds! I know, crazy, right? Well, it turns out your little ones can have a lot of fun making art with seeds. All you need are a few things.
I'm not really a crafty person, but I'm learning to do more crafts with my babies. They love crafts! I have a 6 year old and a 3 year old. Crafts float their boats and so I'm going to show you a spring flower craft we just did this week! It turned out super cute!
Spring is such a wonderful time of exploration outdoors for little ones and we want to spend as much time as possible letting them explore the changes this season brings. When it's time to come inside, you can bring the fun of the spring season in with this handy dandy springtime play packet! I'm throwing in a free download from the packet as well- scissor cutting pages for fine motor skill development!
