Summer Preschool Crafts

The summer approaches quickly each year and if you are a parent you know that your little one is going to be on the go when the warm weather comes, especially if that little one is a preschooler. Keeping your child busy during the summer months can sometimes be a challenge, especially if they are used to being in preschool during the day and are happy being creative. When you are with your preschool aged child during the summer, you can keep them motivated and learning with some simple summer preschool crafts.

Summer preschool crafts are a great way for you and your little one to get some quality time together, especially on the weekends. The crafts do not have to be anything that is super time consuming. They can be as simple as sitting down and coloring together to making puppets from Popsicle sticks. As long as your child is engaged and using their minds, they will be happy doing something as long as it is with you.

One of our favorite summer preschool crafts that are simple to do and fun is a summertime collage. Collages can be of anything you or your child thinks of. It gives them the opportunity to work on their hand and eye coordination by working with glue and it allows them to be creative by stimulating their mind. All you need is a large piece of poster board, a bunch of magazines or pictures, and anything else you and your child wish to use to embellish the final product. Talk to your child about what theme they want to make the collage and then set to work.

A collage is another great way of helping your child cement memories of things you do together as a memento. For example, if you live in an area where there are historical places to visit, spend the day at one with your child. The next day, talk to your preschooler about what they saw and did at the attraction and build a collage around it. If you should happen to have a rainy summer day, make a collage out of old picture of the family, creating a type of family tree that can be enjoyed as your child gets older.

There are numerous summer preschool crafts that you and your child can participate in. The best thing about them is that as your child gets older, they may still want to keep up your ritual of doing things together.
