While evaluating preschool fun for my 4-year-old this year, I realized he’s already naturally learned his letters, numbers, shapes, and colors, just as Charlotte Mason assured me he would, without a heavy curriculum. (Just don’t tell her that he watched Dora and Leapfrog and played on the computer!) I like to have some one-on-one time with him though, so what should we do?
Here’s my list of 81 fun things to do with my little man this year. My plan is to do our reading lesson and then take 30 minutes to do an activity together. I’ll either pick what sounds good to me or have him draw a paper out of a bucket.
I chose activities that take little to no prep on my part, since the bigger kids take the majority of my brain during the school year! 🙂
You can find photos of some of these activities on my Pinterest Boards: Preschool and Toddlers.
