Our family has loved Spielgaben, and these activity bags from Living Montessori Now are a fun way to bring along simple activities that will keep little hands occupied. Love this simple and quick idea!

Apple Themed Counting Mats


3 Dinosaurs has some fun apple themed counting mats to download. Use them along with playdough for some great fine motor work.  

Mystery Bag Beginning Sounds


This mystery bag activity from Teacher Mom Plus 3 is a great way to work on beginning sounds with your kids – and put those magnetic letters to another use! 

ABC Bracelets


Your preschooler will LOVE these alphabet bracelets. Learn and talk about the “letter of the day” and wear it all day.
