This is good for two days only, so be sure to grab it while it’s available!
This box comes with everything you need, and all the items are sorted into weekly activities. For review purposes we do everything at once, but this is great to keep everything organized! I loved it and so pretty too!
The weekly activities are printed all on one sheet, plus there are extension activities on the back! The card notes the skills you are working on with each activity too.
Week One: Frogs. There are 3 activities and every individual activity is sorted into its own plastic bag. The lily pad letters spelled the word frog and your child hopped from one to the other practicing the letters (great for my little guy, who is still working on articulation!).
We colored the frog lifecycle spin chart and talked about how frogs grow, and counted the froggy food into Mr. Frog. He loved this! It had numbers 11-13!
Week Two: Strawberries. This week came with a book from Scholastic – The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and The Big Hungry Bear. My kids love doing things together so my daughter read him the book, and they totally enjoyed it. The beach ball had a game to pass the ball while counting too.
There was a lovely pack of scratch and sniff strawberry stickers, which were used to outline the S. He adored this activity, and not everyone may know, but these sorts of activities are great to form real letter sense.
Week Three: Bees.
We counted bees by gluing them on (numbers 14-16) and then worked on rolling out the dough to form the letter b!
We were super proud that he also made his own b, and then realized that it needed a hole. The plastic eggs, sharpie, and bag were used to make bees and a hive, and you placed numbers inside the bees and your child recognized the number. We put them back in if he needed more practice, and that was a fun game.
We assembled the number flowers, which were to be arranged in order (hey, we did 11-20 today!) and then he drew flowers on the canvas with the sharpie, and painted them!
Happy Mother’s Day to me! I love this! I thought this was a fantastic box, highly learning focused, and my son loved every activity. I was especially pleased with the final art project! It’s definitely getting framed and going on my wall. If you’re looking for preschool activities in a box, this is a great one, and the coupon is hard to beat!
