Popsicle Stick Cats, Raisin Box Puzzles, and Bunny Bookmarks – Preschool and Kindergarten Community

Homeschool Preschool: Preschool and Kindergarten Community linkup at Homeschool Creations

popsicle stick cats

Sorting Sprinkles made some SUPER cute popsicle stick kitties during their pet unit. The sensory box to go along with the pet unit – adorable!

Spielgaben lacing and colors

One of the other things that we are VERY much enjoying are our Spielgaben learning toys. While we are using them at home daily, I brought a few trays along to use with the co-op kids, and they were a HUGE hit. The little girls in our class were lining up colors, lacing away, and making color and shape patterns with the pieces in the set. (And I can’t wait to share more about Spielgaben with you soon!)

If you have empty raisin boxes that you can save, you definitely need to check out the recycled raisin box puzzle from TotSchooling – such a fun idea to work on early puzzles for younger children. Love that they are chunky pieces!

bunny bookmarks

These little bunny bookmarks that Joyfully Weary shared are absolutely adorable! They would be a cute craft to make this upcoming week!

 

Rainbow marshmallow painting

Our final preschool class of the co-op year was last Friday and we had SO much fun learning about colors and rainbows. There are a gazillion ideas on my Pinterest boards, so we definitely weren’t at a lack for things to do! We had so much fun mixing colors and creating new colors together – and then using mini marshmallows to paint rainbows (thanks to Learn Play Imagine for the inspiration!).
