Schooltime Activities for Preschoolers


Schooltime Activities for Preschoolers


“What can I do with my Preschoolers during schooltime?” This is a question we are asked often.

What do you do with the little guys when they want to be a part of what is going on, but are too young to do school with the big kids? The answer may not be as difficult as you think; simple, hands-on projects keep kids entertained for hours, let them “do school” with with everyone else, and they learn while they’re at it. Here is a project Marilyn used with her children. She would keep a jar of the shapes handy, and pull them out when it was time for school.


What you’ll need:

  • Different shapes cut out of colored construction paper (purple stars, orange squares pink circles etc)
  • Plain or colored paper
  • Glue sticks

Allow your child to spread glue on the backs of the paper cut-outs, then make pictures with them on the plain sheets of paper. In this way, they will learn colors and shapes, and have fun all at the same time! For extra fun, they can also spread glue on the faces of the shapes, and sprinkle on glitter.
