For this month’s Picture Book Preschool post, I thought I’d highlight some of the cool activities I’ve seen around the web and the picture books I’d pair with them.
- Pattern Play for Toddlers and Preschoolers from What Do We Do All Day? would work with Pattern Fish by Trudy Harris for an introduction to this math/science concept.
- Mud Bakery from The Chocolate Muffin Tree along with Mud by Mary Lyn Ray would make a great springtime activity that combines the fun of getting messy with learning about nature.
- Ten Ways Kids Can Help in the Kitchen by What Do We Do All Day? is a good starting point for parents whose kiddos really want to get involved with cooking. Add Cook-a-Doodle-Doo by Janet Stevens to the mix, and you’ll have a fun afternoon’s activity that results in a tasty dessert.
- Make a Music Wall from PreK and K Sharing goes right along with a recent guest post on my blog about introducing music to preschoolers. There are so many great picture books that celebrate music and sounds, but I think that Boom Bah! by Phil Cummings or Drum City by Thea Guidone are great choices.
What are some of your favorite activities for preschoolers? Have you found any books that complement the activity?
