Farm & Pet Animals themed activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers

Farm & Pet Animals themed activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers

Every month there is a new theme in K's school. This month's theme is Farm and Pet animals. Hence we did few activities around this theme.

To begin with we first learnt about farm and pet animals and what are the different farm and pet animals. Then we read these books on animals.

After reading these books K was very excited to start with the activities, so here they are.

1.     Sensory Play

A simple activity where she had to take out each animal from the sensory bin and place it in the correct basket - Farm/Non Farm.

2.     Beginning Sounds Identification

Match the animal with the correct beginning sound.

3.     Counting Feet game

Count the feet of each animal and place it in the correct place on the paper. While doing this activity we realised that they were more animals who had 4 feet than animals who had only 2 feet.

4.     Farm & Non Farm animals sorting with miniatures

5.     Farm & Non Farm animals sorting with stickers

6.     Counting activity

Count the apples on the paper and place those many birds on them. Then put the correct number from the basket.

7.     Making a Farm using Popsicle sticks and play dough

8.     Making a Farm using Lego blocks

9.     Pretend Play - Milking a Cow

10. Craft activity - Making a sheep

So, these were few activities we did on this theme.

Hope you find these useful.

Do let us know if you do these activities. We shall love to hear back from you.

Alphabet recognition & sequencing activities for toddler and preschoolers

Simple activities on alphabet recognition & sequencing for toddler and preschoolers

While revising alphabets I realised that K was finding it difficult to revise alphabets as per their sequence. Hence decided to quickly plan few activities for her around it.
1    Upper case to lower case matching

A simple activity where I wrote some random upper case letters on white paper and pasted it on the cupboard. For matching, I wrote their lower case counterpart on post its and K had to match them. Looks a very simple activity but I can tell you K had lots of fun removing the post its and sticking it near the correct letter.
Alphabet sequencing on clothes line

For sequencing, I made chits for each alphabet which mentions both upper and lower case alphabets. K had to clip them as per the correct sequence on the clothes line.
