Hands on Preschool

Take a look at our Preschool happenings.  I truly enjoy the days when B brings out one tray after another or I find him working in the loft on his own.  My favorite moment of the week was when I found K and B snuggled in his bed and K was "reading" a book for them.  Nope, there is no picture--Sometimes I can't grab the camera fast enough but sometimes I just want to savor the moment and not interrupt it with a photoshoot.

file folder fun--color sorting

magnet pompoms

color matching

shape matching

B loved this--finger print stamping, using an Ed Emberley book.  This was a fun activity to do together , B picked the picture and inked his fingers but I had to help with finger placement and drawing the details.

sticker time

color matching with hair clips and hair ties, also good fine motor practice
opening and closing locks

fine motor practice--placing clothes pins on a rim

ABC train puzzle, we need to do this a lot more
cutting practice

our rice box--Hats off to all the ladies who make monthly themed sensory boxes but I cannot keep up.  So we just have a rice box that they love to play with every so often and they always love it.

We hope you enjoy the week, thanks for stopping by.  I'm linking up for Montessori Monday at

Great activities - as usual! And I love your rice box! I think lots of parents feel overwhelmed at the thought of creating monthly themed sensory boxes. Your box shows that you can create fun sensory experiences even if you don't have time to create monthly themed boxes. Thanks for linking up with Montessori Monday.
