Preschool Crafts
The preschool crafts on our website are
meant to coordinate with our weekly
thematic units.  However, they are
wonderful stand alone activities that hit
important skills children will take with
them to Kindergarten and beyond.  Most
of our ideas are simple and easy to clean
up, making them fantastic go-to crafts.
More Preschool Crafts
Dog Ears
Using the template provided, cut out ears and a nose for your dog
(You can often find some really neat "faux fur" at craft supply
stores.)  Then, play Charlotte Diamond's "I Wanna Be a Dog"
from the Music section, and let the children act like dogs.
Patchwork Elephants
Patchwork elephants.  Create an elephant template.  Copy and cut out
enough elephants for each child to have one.  Gather many colors of
construction or tissue paper.  Cut these into small squares.  Provide each
squares onto their elephants to simulate Elmer's patchwork body.
Torn Tissue Paper Apples.

Provide each child with a large paper apple, a sheet of red tissue
paper, and a small square of green tissue paper.  Let children
brush glue over the apple, then tear the tissue paper into bits and
cover the apple.
Sponge-Painted Traffic Lights.
Provide red, green, and yellow paint.
Let children dip circle-shaped
sponges into the paint and dab onto
black paper to make their own traffic
lights.
Toothbrush Splatter Paint
Prepare your art-making area and your children well! Mix up some
wonderful paint colors and let your artists dip toothbrushes and/or combs
in them to create awesome splatter art. Show the children how to use their
thumbs to spray the paint from the bristles. If they have trouble with that,
let them make prints with the objects instead.
Making a Passport
(stamp is made from craft foam and wood block:
tutorial here) Let the children create a passport to
have stamped at each of the lands they visit.  Make
a little book out of construction paper.  Let the
children decorate it with old stamps, stickers,
photos from magazines, drawings of maps, etc.  
Stamp it when they arrive in each new area.  Write
the word for "hello" in each region's language if
you like.  Decorate each area with designs that
represent each region.  The children can use it to
show their parents or caregivers where they
"traveled" to during the day.
