Activities for preschoolers are more advanced than most of the activities marked for toddlers. While a lot of them are learning activities, they don’t necessarily have to be. They could just be more intricate and take more concentration too.
The following activities are simple, require very few supplies – and are a great way to get to know your preschoolers personalities. As an added bonus, they’ll also help prepare your child’s hands and eyes for writing.
Materials You Will Need: paper, highlighter, marker or pencil
What To Do: This fun activity will provide an opportunity for your child to learn how to write his/her name. Write your child’s name on the paper with a marker.
Remember to write the first letter using a capital letter then the rest in lower case. Let your child trace over the name with a highlighter. By repeating this activity, your child will begin to understand how to write his/her own name! It will take time for your child to write his/her name legibly.
Materials You Will Need: Play Doh
What To Do: Have your child roll medium-sized balls of Play-Doh into 6-inch ropes. Ask your child to choose a letter to make, then see if your child can use the rope of Play-Doh to do so. If this is challenging for your child, write the letter on paper first, then let your child form the Play-Doh on top to match.
DOT TO DOT
Materials You Will Need: piece of paper, markers
What To Do: Write your child’s name on paper using dots, (5 or 6 per letter), instead of lines. Have your child start with the first dot and connect the dots. Hopefully, your child will recognize his/her name! Try this with the names of other family members if your child enjoys this activity.
