Summer Fun Books & Activities for Preschoolers
Your preschooler will love our summer and sunshine themed August activity packet. Learn outdoors and in with hands-on activities, crafts, and engaging children’s literature all about ocean animals, sea life, and beach fun!
In this pack, you’ll find crafts and activities to encourage your child to learn and explore while gently introducing early reading, math, and science concepts and practicing fine motor skills through play.
Summer Days and Summer Nights is one of my very favorite summertime books for preschool. Follow a little girl as she explores on a hot summer day and observes the sights and sounds of the night. Encourage your child to observe the differences between day and night. What do they see? What do they hear?
Do you have fireflies in your area? Or do you call them lightning bugs? See them fly around at night. Can your little one catch a few? At home create a firefly nightlight to light up the night. Simple directions from Joann.
Introduce your child to the simple days of summer in the Big Woods with a short picture book taken from the beloved Little House series. Share the excitement of summer and love of the great outdoors with these cherished characters of times past.
Continue practicing your letters with the most important letters in your child’s life – the ones in their name! Create a fun under-the-sea themed sensory bag with your child’s name and let them explore all the colors and textures without the mess! Directions from Modern Preschool.
Does your little one know Froggy? He is a sweet, fun-loving, little frog who is always up for a new adventure. In this book, you’ll see Froggy overcome his fear of the water and learn to swim! The gentle, warm, and fun Froggy series is sure to become a family favorite.
Go swimming this summer, just like Froggy. For even more fun at home try the Lilly Pad Leap shared by Mrs. Plemon’s Kindergarten. Draw lilly pads with sidewalk chalk and frog hop from one leaf to the next! Make it even more fun by adding sprinklers and a splash pool at the end for your little froggy to hop into!
