The kids and I hadn’t done our regular homeschool preschool day in several weeks due to my putting in extra hours on my dissertation. I’m working very hard to finish it up so I can graduate this June with my PhD! Because I hadn’t spent as much time with the kids lately, I was really excited to have them home with me for an opportunity to do some Easter activities for preschoolers.
Note: This and other Easter learning activities can be found on my Easter activities for kids page.
We started with some scissors practice using worksheets from my Easter printable pack.
QBoy was so pleased with the pictures he cut out that he wanted to tape them to his wall. I used that as an opportunity to work on fine motor skills by teaching him how to tear tape from the dispenser and then fold it over to stick to both the paper and the wall.
He was very pleased to then put his cut outs on the wall. 🙂
XGirl also did a shadow matching activity from my Easter printable pack.
And she also did some fine writing motor practice, also from my Easter printable pack. (And if you look at the picture, it’s obvious we still have work to do on this skill!)
QBoy did a Venn diagram sorting activity from my Easter printable pack. This was a bit challenging for him, but with support he was able to do it.
I then gave XGirl a math activity. She loves to use our jumbo dice. I had her roll the dice and then count the number of dots. Once she identified the number of dots, we found the corresponding sandpaper number and she traced the number with her finger to become familiar with its shape.
Finally, I had her count out that number of mini Easter eggs and add them to her worksheet. After adding mini eggs to the top and then to the bottom, she counted them all up (to work on basic addition).
