How many of you have heard that preschoolers need to be left free to play and anything that is remotely connected to education and reinforcement can be started off once they get an inch closer to their school time?
Well, we believe that play activities for preschoolers need to be designed very carefully as your child’s mind is very fertile at this time. He/she is basically hankering to learn something new each day. If the preschool activities are only about thoughtless play and fun, you are hindering your kid’s ability to get a head start on some of the most important foundational concepts and skills.
In this blog, we shall talk about some of the best preschool learning activities that will embody the essence of learning through play.
Fun Learning Preschool Activities Ideas For Kids
If you are thinking of some fun activities for preschoolers, you can take a look at the following activities:
1. Finger Painting
Children can use their fingers to create art on chart paper. This is a great way to enhance hand and eye coordination in kids. It also works wonders for their sensory development.
2. Mess-Free Activity
If you want your kids to be engaged in mess-free fun actually, you can check out the Foil fun by Skillmatics. This will let your kid create fun and exciting pictures of stars, astronauts, etc., with sparkly foil sheets. In addition to being a great play activity for preschoolers, it is also a great pick for moms as they won't have to worry about cleaning up the mess left behind.
3. Colour Sorting Game
This is an amazing pre-nursery activity for encouraging kids to identify colours. You can keep an assortment of fruits or anything else in different colours in front of your kids. After that, you can help them differentiate those products based on their colour. This game works wonders for reinforcing colour recognition skills and sorting abilities.
4. Shape Machine
This is also a very interesting preschool learning activity. You and your kid can try fitting different shapes in matching places on a board game or activity mat. This is truly a super fun and interactive activity for enhancing recognition skills in your child.

6. Play Syllable Head and Shoulders
You can sing head, shoulder, knees and toes to your kid by playfully inserting syllables. This is an outstanding preschool learning activity to help kids learn about language development and communication.
7. Practice Rhyming With Blocks

In fact, these rhymes become so deeply etched in the hearts and minds of kids that they tend to remember these cute songs when they grow up.
8. Alphabet Sensory Bin
You can create a bin of alphabet-shaped blocks or foam boards with alphabets. Encourage your child to take out all the blocks and boards and simply play with them.
