Are you looking for a way to add more learning activities to your preschooler’s day, but still want to make sure it feels like playing and NOT learning?
Do you struggle with coming up with activities for your preschooler and wish you had ideas to keep your little one’s mind active without a lot of prep and on your end?
Have you found yourself needing to travel unexpectedly, which now means that your kiddo will be missing preschool?
Or are you stuck at home because of snow days, hurricane days, summer break, or worse and are feeling like you need to get your kiddos away from their screens and back on track with hands-on fun?
Honestly, it doesn’t matter what the reason is.
If you are looking for super simple activities for your 3-5 year-old that are ready to go, you are in the right spot!
You may be thinking, why in the world is she giving us resources at no cost?
There must be some kind of catch, right?
There must be some kind of “in app purchase” that we will have to make in order to keep accessing these activities?
And there won’t be over the next couple of months. At some point I may bundle everything up, make it pretty, and consider selling it. But for now, I don’t even have that on my radar.
As a mom, preschool teacher, PTO President, and former kindergarten teacher, I have taught and fought for all kinds of kiddos. Most of the time they are not even my own kids.
I have a hard time with kids not having the opportunities that all children deserve.
When I first heard that schools were closing, my first thoughts were about the free and reduced lunch students who were going to struggle for food and those who didn’t even have their own books at home. My mind started filling with ideas, but I find that it is tricky to try to “save the world” without a plan.
So I went from thinking about a joining other bloggers to combine printable resources to sell to parents…to maybe an email series of activities for parents…to maybe just staying on track and coming up with new ideas and creating new activities…but nothing seemed right for me or like what I really needed to be doing.
My mind went in a bazillion directions and I finally worked through how I could make a difference.
That’s when Preschool on the Go was born. It was literally last night that I came up with the name and I’m loving it.
The whole idea behind this Preschool on the Go plan is to offer ideas and activities WITHOUT stressing parents out.
Watch a little TV and then pick an activity. Take a bubble bath in the middle of the day and then pick an activity. Do 2 of the activities before lunch, watch a movie or take a nap, eat a snack, and then finish the last activity before dinner.
Feeling like a lazy day in pajamas is going to work best one day? Totally skip all activities for that day and add them in randomly to other days.
Whatever works for you, works with the Preschool on the Go activities.
The first set of weeks are up and ready for you! Actually…the entire 10 week series of activity plans is ready. Whew!
The weekly activity plans utilize every day items, popular kid supplies, and can probably be changed up to meet the needs of the materials you have at home. If you have any questions, or need suggestion, email me!
