The very best way to keep learning fun and interesting as the weather gets warmer is to bulk up on hands-on activities! Keep little kids engaged and motivated with these hands-on ice cream activities for preschoolers. Little kids like ice cream. Little kids like to move and learn. And little kids like to have fun. Each of the ice cream activities in this awesome list below are perfect additions to your summer theme, and can be used at home or in the classroom.
Which do you think will be your favorite ice cream activity? I love activities that you can prep once and use again and again.
We use reusable busy bins (our ice cream theme is super popular with the preschoolers!) throughout the year, but I love adding even more ideas to my classroom. Games, sensory bins, pretend play, move and learn, and simple craft ideas encourage strengthening and mastering preschool skills of all kinds.
So basically, no matter what skills you are working on with your preschoolers, you will find a great idea below!
