Preschool Crafts
The preschool crafts on our website are
meant to coordinate with our weekly
thematic units.  However, they are
wonderful stand alone activities that hit
important skills children will take with
them to Kindergarten and beyond.  Most
of our ideas are simple and easy to clean
up, making them fantastic go-to crafts.

Make Tambourines

Punch holes around the circumfrences of sturdy
disposable plates (use the colored plastic type.)  Provide
twist-ties and jingle bells for each hole.  Let children attach the
bells to their tambourines.  Provide shiny decorations and let
the children decorate their creations with sparkles and glitter.
Make a Quilt Square

Make a cooperative patchwork quilt to emphasize both the concepts
presented in the following Bible storytime and the letter "Q."    Show the
children some photos or actual examples of quilts.  Point out how each block
is made up of patterns of shapes and colors.  Give each child their own "quilt
block" of construction paper.  Provide scraps of fabric, tissue paper, their
blocks unique.  After each block is complete, help the children paste their
blocks beside one another on a big sheet of butcher paper, a large piece of
cardboard, or other type of backing material.   The individual blocks have
now become the class quilt.  This activity underscores the concepts of giving
and sacrifice as shown in the story, The Quiltmaker's Gift.
Chicka Chicka Name Tree
Tree Template Page 1
Tree Template Page 2

Provide large sheets of paper and easels for the children.  Help the children create a
simple tree out of fingerpaints or with paints and brushes.  It might help to have a
basic outline drawn on the paper beforehand.  Provide small squares of paper with
the letters of each child's name.  For example, for a child named  “Josh,” you
would give him a “J,” an “O,” an “S,” and an “H.”  Let the children decorate or
color in each of these letters.  Then let them paste these letters onto their name tree
Little Red Hens
Hen Template
Use fingerpaints and feathers to create "Little Red Hens."  
Provide cut-outs of hen bodies and let the children use two
shades of red fingerpaints to color them in.  When the bodies are
dry, let the children glue on red feathers for the hen's
tail-feathers.  Use wiggle- or googly-eyes for the hen's eyes.  Cute!
Little Red Hen Felt Set
Additionally you can use our Little Red Hen
printables for children to make their own story stick
puppets.  Print on cardstock and glue a popsicle stick
to the back.  Bring in a cardboard box puppet theater
for them to retell the story!
