Grace Cooperative Preschool, May 18-22, 2020

Go on a “Duck Walk!” Wet weather brings out worms and birds and beautiful droplets on plants and flowers. Head outside and explore what the rain leaves behind!

Make an erupting volcano! Put some baking soda in a small container, add a little vinegar and watch it erupt! Another way to explore is to sprinkle baking soda on a cookie sheet. Preschoolers can use an eyedropper to squirt drops of vinegar and watch the sizzling reaction!

Will it slide or roll? Explore what might slide down a ramp and what objects might roll. At preschool we have a ramp at the ready, but at home you can make a ramp from long blocks, cardboard or even a book!

Put on a puppet show! In addition to being super fun, pretend play with puppets is a great way to express creativity and imagination, develop language and social skills found in conversation.

Make a shape picture! We love pattern blocks at preschool, but you can cut shapes from paper and arrange them to create houses, rockets, vehicles, flowers, whatever you like!

We think you’ll like Color Zoo by Lois Ehlert. Preschoolers can explore the cut out shapes by tracing with their finger as well as enjoy the animals they become!
