preschool activities

 

Does your child love cupcakes?  Who doesn’t love these delicious treats.  First, Mother 2 Mother is creating  educational matching games to help stimulate the mind of preschoolers.  Our preschool activities matching games will also entertain your child and it help them recognize differences and similarities.

I’m a big advocate of early childhood development.  I believe it is essential in a child’s education.  Matching items/objects helps to develop a child’s logic and make connections.  Furthermore, it also helps to develop the desire to learn and builds a solid foundation for success.  Early childhood development sets children on a clear path for success in Kindergarten and beyond.

Unfortunately, my granddaughter will be starting Kindergarten in the fall.  It’s unfortunate because I wanted my babies to stay babies forever.  Yes, it is hard to believe that my 2 pound 10 ounce preemie is thriving and about to enter school.  As a result, I have created a series of preschool activities to help with her educational development.

Furthermore, our Cupcake Matching game is filled with brightly colored and delicious cupcakes.  They are sure to grab the attention of any preschooler.  So, feel free to print this worksheet and whip up a  batch of cupcakes.  As a matter of fact, you can ick up a few from your favorite bakery if you’re short on time.  They will be perfect to reward your little student for doing a great job.  You  can reward yourself too. I love this game already.

It is important that preschoolers use their thinking skills.  Matching items is a great way to accomplish that goal.  Drawing lines to connect the pairs to each other will help children sharpen their fine motor skills.  Help them match pairs at home with this fun preschool activities sheet. Children love figuring things out. You may also like our Super Hero  matching preschool activities sheet.

Preschool Valentines Day Activities

 

Preschool Valentines Activities

 

Valentines Day is next week.  There will be more candy, roses, teddy bears, lingerie, and cards received than you can count. Valentines Day has become big business.  Don’t get me wrong, I love receiving roses, teddy bears and all the other gifts received on February 14.  However, a quiet day/evening at home with a glass of wine is the perfect gift for me.

Whatever your plans, lets not forget the kids.  Because Valentines Day isn’t just for adults.  So, spread your love around.  We suggest that you plan a party, play games, watch movies and just have fun with them too.  These activities are perfect for homeschooling moms or moms who want to give kids additional homework or just occupy their kids.

I developed these Preschool Valentines Activities sheets for your little one.  They’re bright, fun and educational.  My little Muffin is in Kindergarten, so these activities are perfect for her.  We’ve come a long way from her 2 lb. 10 oz. entrance into the world.  She’s become a sassy, computer savvy diva, who has mastered the Kindle, her Samsung tablet, the iPad and any other game on the market.

Amazingly, she understands loading, buffering, loss of internet connection, Bing, Youtube and the list goes on.  She is truly amazing.

Finally, I’m sure your preschooler or Kindergartener would love these activities.  We have a coloring page, match, spot the difference and a draw a line activities.  Download the activities here

 

 

African American Inventors

Black History Month activities,

Image-Answer-Key-African-American-Inventions

February is Black History Month.   There’s some controversy as to whether or not there should be a Black History Month.  Some people believe that there shouldn’t be a month that focuses on one race’s accomplishments.  Some people believe that many accomplishments by African American’s in America have been diminished.  As a result, we should continue Black History Month.   

l will participate in the celebration as long as it’s being celebrated.  I just like to have a good time regardless.  In my opinion, children should learn about everyone’s contribution to our country.  It’s great because of the diverse people who have made a contribution.  

Many African Americans have contributed to America’s history.  They invented the street mailboxes, adhesives, spark plugs, and more. I believe as parents and grandparents, it is our responsibility to teach our children about American’s history. 

I developed this fun and educational match games for older children.  The goal is to match the Inventor to the Invention.  They may know some of the Inventors/Inventions, but they may have to Google others.  This is a great way to have a family discussion.  You can discuss how the invention is used in your home.  If not in your home, than their grandparents home.  Turn it into a fun, educational game.  It’s perfect for a road trip too. 

I’ve included an Answer Key.  Print both the challenge and answer key here.  Have fun with the kids, and be sure to check back for additional Black History posts.
