June Preschool Themes and Ideas
Bring on the warm weather, popsicles and loads of fun activities that preschoolers look forward to all year long. This list of activities and themes will have your preschoolers engaged, learning, and enjoying the summer months!
We are ready to have some fun this summer with themes from Fun in the Sun to Transportation to stomping around like a Dinosaur. Below you will find a list of activities and learning opportunities to bring into your home or classroom this summer.
Fun in the Summer Sun
Young kids love dinosaurs, there is no doubt about it. A dinosaur theme offers endless activities as there is so much to learn. It's also a great theme to plan for the summer because there are so many fun things to do outdoors with a dinosaur theme. A dinosaur egg excavation is a great activity to do outdoors and your preschoolers will really feel like paleontologists. Try something as simple as adding dinosaurs to a water table or a sandpit. As long as dinos are involved, the kiddos will love it!

Summer is often filled with travel and trips by various methods of transportation making this a great time to teach preschoolers all about transportation! Start your unit by asking preschools if they are going on any vacations and how are they getting there. We are surrounded by transportation every day making this a very relatable and fun topic for preschoolers to learn about. Incorporate new vehicles in the water or sandpit or even take a ride on a local train. Try this free hot air balloon craft!

National Rocky Road Day
More Ice Cream Fun
Father's Day is celebrated on the 3rd Sunday in June. Preschoolers light up when they get the opportunity to make something special for their parents and loved ones. Our Father's Day Activity Pack offers a variety of different activities and DIY gifts for preschoolers to celebrate dads, grandpas, uncles, or friends!
National Zoo and Aquarium Month
Throughout the month of June we celebrate National Zoo and Aquarium month which makes it an even better time to visit the animals at these places! And, if you can't make it, then invite preschoolers to make their own zoo or aquarium right at home or in the classroom!
Deaf and Blindness Week
Deaf and Blindness Week is observed the last week of June every year, and this is in honor of Helen Keller’s birthday on June 27th. This week is an opportunity to not only raise awareness but to celebrate all those who children and adults who have a hearing and vision loss. Adaptive equipment activities are a wonderful activity for spreading awareness to your preschoolers.
