Preschool children are always up for trying new things and are open to new experiences. They look at the world in awe and expect to gain much from it. As a parent, you should make sure that you can give them fun activities for them to look forward to. Give them something that can help stimulate their brain and at the same time, make sure that the activity is something they actually like. You can also do these activities together for a fun bonding experience. Here are some of those fun activities which you can try with preschool children:
Arts and Crafts - Have you ever seen your child try to make sketches and doodles on a piece of paper? Take that as a go signal for you to let them try their hands on drawing and even writing. You can buy them those big coloring books which also come with stickers. There are also some activity books that you can buy which are complete with other activities inside that involve reading, maybe a little bit of math, and even connecting the dots. You should also invest in a good set of crayons for those little hands, better buy them jumbo sized crayons so they can grip it much easier. You might also want to try some easy origami with the kids and you can be sure that they would really love it. Just supervise everything especially when applying glue or using scissors.
Kitchen Fun – If you have noticed your preschool children paying attention to you while you cook or bake, then they might be interested in dtrying out those activities themselves. You can ask them to help you out when you cook and if you are to bake pastries, then why not teach them how to make cute little cupcakes and even something as simple as butter cookies. You should also consider letting them help their favorite food like spaghetti or even fried chicken. They would surely be awed with the little things they can do to help you cook or bake.
Camping – This is one fun activity you can share with your kids especially if you have a nice big backyard. When they grow a bit older, they might be interested to join summer camps and get to experience living outdoors. But you have to let them appreciate and know first how it’s going to be like. All you need is a simple tent and you can even make your own campfire while toasting marshmallows in it while singing campfire songs. This can actually turn out to be a bonding activity for the whole family.
All in all, just make sure that your preschool children definitely love the theme of the activities that he or she is participating in. Take note of the things they like and even the cartoon characters that please them so that you can include those in the activities that you will do. Eventually, these can even turn out to be a reward which you can be offerred to preschool children as a reward for doing other things that are necessary and productive but may not seem as enjoyable to them.
