With a three year old and a one year old at home I am always on the lookout for great resources to inspire learning through play for my preschoolers. If you’re looking for some steadfast blogs that have rich content and tons of resources to help you not only educate but also have fun with your preschooler you’ve come to the right place. Here I’ll share with you my top five resources.
These bloggers have so many printable downloads and ideas for games and activities you’ll never run out of things to do with your little ones.
1. Carissa at 1+1+1=1 has created a virtual “Tot School”.
This online-school isn’t really a school at all, it’s a place to find ideas for spending focused time each day with the tot in your family. The purpose of Tot School is to help you expose your child to early learning skills through fun play.
As you can see from these images, Carissa’s daughter “Ladybug” loves to demonstrate all the wonderful ways that moms and tots can enjoy “Tot School”.
2. Jolanthe at Homeschool Creations has a Preschool Corner just for young learners.
At Homeschool Creations Jolanthe not inly provides “resources, free printables, & encouragement for homeschool families” her site is overflowing with curriculum and information to help you plan your activities and more.
Here are just a few of the fantastic printables you can find at Homeschool Creations: alphabet wall posters, uppercase letter tracing cards, and my ABC bible verses.
3. Jenae’s blog “I can Teach My Child” helps you become your child’s first teacher.
At I Can Teach My Child you will find teaching tools separated by age from birth on up through six plus years of age. Jenae is a former teacher and her site is chock full of ideas that will help you help your preschooler to learn through play.
Two featured posts from Jenea’s site include “10 Steps to teaching your child to read,” and “33 ways to prepare your child for kindergarten.”
4. Genny at “In Lieu of Preschool” is a former teacher doing preschool at home.
In Lieu of Preschool is easy to navigate depending upon what you are looking for with special sections on arts and crafts, early learning and play.
5. No Time for Flash Cards features learning and play for babies, toddlers and kids.
At No Time for Flash Cards you can find posts on books, crafts, and activities. I love the sense of humor that comes through on this blog. One of their recent posts included “25 Books that will make your kids laugh”. I can’t think of a better way to spend time with a child.
