Grace Cooperative Preschool, April 13-17, 2020

Make a Memory- We are all missing our routines and the friends and activities that were a part of our “regular life.” However, the shelter in place has also given us an opportunity to slow down and connect with our families. Why not take a moment to remember the sweet part of this time at home? Years from now, let this be a memento of when our families came together to care for the world by staying apart.

Count and Sort- Gather a group of items- buttons, beads, small cars, jellybeans, coins, etc. Count them! Can you group them by color? Keep counting! Can you sort them by size? How else can you sort your items?

Chalk it up! Head outside and have some fun! Use chalk to make a hopscotch board. Spread out the letters of the alphabet for preschoolers to hop on as they sing the alphabet. Leave a picture for a neighbor to enjoy!

Sink or Float- One of our favorite preschool activities is experimenting with what might sink or float in water. Fill a tub with water and test a variety of objects- paper clip, block, cork, small toys, acorns, etc.

What comes out of eggs? Explore your environment. What can you find outside that came from an egg? Birds? Ladybugs? Chickens? Don’t forget inside! Do you have any toy animals or critters that came from an egg? Dinosaurs? Snakes/ Frogs? You might enjoy Chicken Aren’t the Only Ones by Ruth Heller.
