My Favorites for Preschool: Activities and games

Games and songs are two of the best ways to help your child learn something. This week I will be sharing my favorite games and activities that have helped my son learn shapes, numbers, thinking skills, or motor skills.

Games
Warning: If you buy this game you WILL have to play it over, and over, and over again! My son loves The Cat's Pajamas and still requests to play it often. It helps with learning shapes and colors, as well as numbers 1-3 on a simple dice. It's a board game that makes them feel grown up, and formatted in such a way that everyone gets a fair shot at winning. 


Other games like Chutes and Ladders, and Candy Land are a great way to teach counting and colors. I don't have these games, but Little Man has played these at my mom's and has enjoyed them!

Another game that we love around here is memory match. It's always educational to improve their memory.  I think my son might be better at this game than me! haha We have the Spider-man version of this game, but this one is very similar.


Activities
There are so many activities we love. From sensory play to fine tuning motor skills, we normally do some sort of activity each day. Here are just a few of my favorites!
Lacing and Beading:
Not only are these great for preschool, but I love to bring them on trips as well. They are quiet enough for church, and my son can do these on his own, so it's something that I can leave him to do while I clean the house. I don't have this specific set, but mine is very similar.



There is another activity that I want to show you, but I believe they no longer sell it. I love this bug color and counting activity set. My son loves the colorful bugs, and the activity cards range from finding all of a certain color, to patterns, to simple addition. I found something similar in these bear activity cards, and I'm also sending a link to the bugs activity itself, but it doesn't look like it's sold through amazon, and it's very expensive!



There are many more activities I could talk about, but that may have to be left for another day. If you follow me on Facebook, you will know that I am now on the Timberdoodle blog team! There are a few activities that I would love to talk about and review for you, that I hope I get to do soon!
If you AREN'T following me on social media, go follow me on Instagram and Facebook. I would love to hear feedback from you!
