Summer Lessons for Your Preschooler

Another school year has come and gone, and it’s summer time already. When you made that last preschool run you may have been thanking your lucky stars that you don’t have to rush everyone out the door so early. But soon the dust settles and you realize you have your child home now – and they are bored. Every day at preschool they were playing with well-coordinated activities in a place designed for messes. Home is a bit different, and now you’re stuck trying to figure out what to do to keep your preschooler’s mind and body just as active as they were at school. 

You may be amazed at how much your child learned throughout the school year. But remember how when you were in school your mind would somehow lose much of what you learned during the school year, and your teachers would spend the first few weeks reviewing that material? It is the same for your preschooler – if they don’t practice the skills they learned this year they may forget them over the summer. Just because the school year is ending doesn’t mean the learning has to stop! Here are some activities for you to do at home with your preschooler to keep their learned skills sharp throughout the summer.
