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?

Are you searching for an inspirational activity for your mixed-age group? One that could easily be a craft or an educational classroom activity? If you sometimes find your treasures on the craft stores' clearance shelves, like me, you'll likely have most materials for this activity on hand.
Here are some simple burlap Christmas tree fine motor activities, inspired by the "Deck the Halls" Theme!

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.

We are reaching the last few days of summer, but you should still have some nice days left to enjoy a picnic with your preschooler! One of my favorite picnic stories is The Bear's Picnic, by Stan and Jan Berenstain. In this delightful story the Bear's go on an adventure to find just the perfect picnic spot.
To compliment this Berenstain Bears classic story, (and your picnic lesson plans!) I've created this free printable picnic blanket weaving craft template.
Paper weaving is a great hands on paper craft to build fine motor skills, and is also a fun way to explore patterns!
Below you will find an easy Butterfly Symmetry project to compliment your Caterpillar and Butterfly theme. Enjoy!
