Preschool and Kindergarten Community weekly linkup

Ready for another week of linking up and sharing ideas? I am so glad that you are stopping by today (really, I am!) and can’t wait to see what you all have to share this week. Be sure to stop by our PreK & K Pinterest board to see a collection of the different posts we are pinning – including yours!

Don’t forget to link up a post (or two) of yours and share what you’ve been working on with your kids! Here are a few fun ideas from last week’s linkup.

Cotton Swab Mazes

Cotton Swab Tracks for Toy Cars 02

Our home is full of cotton swabs, and this idea to use them in making cotton swab mazes from Practical Mom is so much fun! No more messy tape lines on your floor or carpet and they can be re-used for future mazes. 

Pool Noodle Caterpillar

Pool-Noodle-FunIf your pool noodles look anything like ours after a few months, there are chunks missing or splits in them. Rather than throwing them out, follow this pool noodle caterpillar tutorial from Growing Up Gabel and make some summer crafts. 

ABC Letter Mazes

Letter Mazes letters K to O and coloring pages from Homeschool Creations

This free K to O alphabet maze and coloring pack includes letter mazes for the letters K through O and additional coloring space for words that begin with the corresponding letter sound.


Glow in the Dark Activities


With the summer weather and late nights in full swing, have some glow in the dark fun with these ideas from Crystal and Co. Our kids never get tired of things that glow in the dark, including fireflies!

That’s it for this week!! Thanks so much for checking in with us and sharing below.
