Here is a free storytime activity your preschooler is going to love!
Pair my free 2D shape reindeer craft with the adorable story, The Little Reindeer by Nicola Killen or with your favorite book about reindeer.
After reading the story, invite your child to create their own reindeer.
This reindeer craft is a fun way to practice scissor skills, hand-eye coordination, and learn to read and follow directions.
This craft also provides a great opportunity to discuss 2D shapes with your child. Can they find the circle, rectangles, and ovals?
Which shapes are there the most of? or the least?

Linking activities to fun books is wonderful for language and literacy development!
When you follow up a story with a craft or activity, children are naturally working on recalling and sequencing the events from the story.
This is a fun and easy activity to do after reading Dem Bones by Bob Barner.
You can get the printables shown in this activity for free in my Subscriber Library or in my shop at the link in the bottom of this post.
Creating a space for art in your early learning program will provide many opportunities for young children to learn new skills. In the Art Space, even the youngest child can learn to appreciate the beautiful designs, and colors that are found in art, Children will begin to develop new language that describes art, as well as explore new art processes, mediums, and tools.
The art space provides many opportunities for children to improve their motor, sensory, language, social emotional, and cognitive development skills as they learn to create.

Stamping with Bottle Caps is so much fun. It's such a sensory experience, as the bottle cap slides around in the paint. For this activity I've used the closed side of the bottle cap, but using the open side is just as fun. If you don't have any bottle caps you can also use Corks, Small Foam Stamps, or even cardboard tubes.
