Penguin Numbers Activity

I was trying to think of another Penguin themed activity for last week when I came across this box of old Christmas cards while I was cleaning. Perfect!!

Prep Work:
  • I'm assuming everyone doesn't just happen to have an old Christmas card with 10 penguins on instead, look online for a picture of a penguin. Copy and paste it 10 times into a Word document and print it out. 
  • Then take a marker and write numbers 1-10 on it.
  • Get out 10 small items for your child to place on the numbers (dry beans, dry noodles, small pieces of paper, anything! We used foam shapes).

Here's what you do:

  • I have some cut out numbers. I would hold one up and have LB say the number. Then I had him place the foam shape on that numbered penguin. After he found all the numbers we switched and LB held up the numbers for me. 
  • You could also just say a number and have your child find it and place the small item on top. 
  • OR you can write the numbers on papers and draw them out of a hat.
    • OR hide them around the room. When they find a number they come put the item on.
  • OR for older kids, give a simple addition problem and have them put the item on the correct answer (1+3 = 4)

LB was very focused as he chose which numbers to hold up for me. :)

Build a Dinosaur!

Our recent theme for Preschool@Home was DINOSAURS! This is a great (and super easy) activity for helping kids learn and recognize shapes. Using craft foam means it can be used over and over again! And the possibilities are endless.
Or use some glue on the shapes and it could also become a one-of-a-kind dinosaur craft! No matter how you use it, this simple dinosaur activity will most likely produce some very unique prehistoric creatures!
