At the beginning of the school year, as we are learning about ourselves and others, we like to include an all about me theme. At this age, children are just starting to form friendships and enjoy play dates. They are learning how to think about others, notice their thoughts and feelings, and how to communicate with them. These 22 all about me theme ideas for preschool include lots of hands-on ideas that encourage young children to get to know themselves and their friends.
