Fun learning activities for preschoolers do not need to be complex. In fact, some of our favorite preschool learning activities are simple ideas we put together with materials we already had on hand. Some were purchased at dollar stores. Some we found at thrift shops.
These activities can be done at home or in a classroom setting. In our preschool classroom, these activities are done during our free-choice centers time. We also keep some of them out during transitions.
If you are traveling, you could put some of these in Zip-Lock bags. Fun, right?
