Give A Dog A Bone

Preschoolers are busy, busy, kids. They want to be on the go all day long. So it can be nice to slow them down occasionally with some learning and interactive activities every now and then. Since my kids only attend preschool 3 days a week I enjoy doing learning activities and lessons with them at home several times a week. One of the best resources I have for downloading lesson plans and activities for my kids is Danielle’s Place.

Danielle’s Place offers low cost printable lesson plans and patterns for preschool activities. They offer lessons for Math, Spelling, Science, Art, and the Bible. You can pay per download, or begin an annual subscription. There are hundreds of great learning activities to do with your preschooler, so be sure to check them all out.

We are especially fond of the Give a Dog a Bone activity. It combines music, arts, and math. A multi-interactive learning activity is perfect for preschoolers because it keep them busy and it helps them to activate different parts of the brain for a better learning response.
