It's always fun, and educational, to look back at the previous year to see what is popular with the early learning community.

The stats indicate what you as readers are interested in, whether as parents or teachers, or both! It's my goal to meet the expectations of readers with fun and easy activities that kids will love.

I advocate for hands-on learning that provides opportunities for kids to explore, discover while playing every day. For teachers and parents, activities will be more readily delivered if materials and setups are more readily available.

We use household materials and everyday craft supplies to provide fun and learning for your preschoolers. 


Top preschool posts of 2018

Many of the activities in this roundup are science - or STEAM - related. This topic has gradually become an important part of the blog.

  • And it's why I am an affiliate for the STEAM series of books, written by a team of parents and educators that nurture and support early learning education.

Some of the posts in this list, like the Marble Run, show up year after year, giving them more value as learning tools for preschoolers, toddlers, and even elementary kids.

Some posts, like the Mini Volcano, are new to the blog, and will hopefully continue to provide inspiration for your daily activities.
