Toddler and Preschool Idea Round Up

Welcome! New to ABC and 123?
Please check out our FAQ in the left sidebar.

Today we've put together an assortment of great activities that would all be appropriate for toddler and preschool aged learners, enjoy!

Starr from shares how you can use beans to practice sequencing and patterning.

Melissa from Max and Ellie, has created a phases of the moon matching game inspired by the book I Took The Moon For A Walk by Carolyn Curtis. What a great book extension and she's provided downloads in several different colors for you to use too!

We also like Melissa's Color's of Nature sacavenger hunt, which didn't go as planned but we agree it is a good idea!

While we're talking about colors, Jess at Making of a Montessori Mum shared a colour matching activities for toddlers. We also like her idea to make matching cards, shared in the same post.

Did you kids get any twizzlers for treats last Saturday? The Pink and Green Mama has a great idea for using to practice making shapes. This would also be a fun way to practice forming letters as well. We also like her recent posts on sorting pom poms with tweezers and her one of practicing with scissors.

Melinda at Mama Bear's Clubhouse sent us two great activities that work on fine motor skills and get them ready to be more independent in the all important realm of self care skills.
Practicing using hair clips

Nicole from Tired, Need Sleep make a game book for her son with several activities that help him practice prewriting skills. She provides links to where she found the ones she included in her book.
