Things I Love Thursday- Preschool Printables


My daughter loves to color, craft, and glue- which is fun for me too. She is 3 1/2 and we are planning on doing some 'home school' preschool at this point. I'm always looking for fun activities that not only peak her interest, but also help her develop fine motor skills. Lately, she has been into tracing- thinking the dotted line pictures. I'm wanting to start some basic letter writing (she can already form an I, L, T, H, and O).


What I love this Thursday is the preschool printables you can find for free online. Just google what you are looking for and you will find it- and more great ideas! Today I googled letter tracing and found some great resources and printables. I have done this before with color pages for my daughter and for other activity pages when I was teaching. There are even sites you can build your own crossword and word searches for older kids!


I recommend:

worksheetworks.com

printactivities.com

puzzlemaker.discoveryeducation.com

and pbskids/nickkids for printables related to your kids favorite characters!


Have free printable fun! That's what I love this Thursday- check out The Diaper Diaries for more great ideas!


Oh and another tip- use scrap paper to print on!

I love online printables- it gives a good project to work on while still feeling educational! Thanks for the links, visiting from TILT :)

we do this too. In fact I still do this for my 6 yo. She needed to do a project for school on the planets so I just googled for printables and we used those for pics.
