Kite Activity for Preschool




originally published 4-10-13
For our Preschool@Home this week our theme is KITES!
LB(3) and I did this fun little activity and it's SO easy to make, check it out!

Prep Work:
  • Cut 5 kite shapes (diamonds) out of construction paper
    • Write numbers 1-5 on them.
  • Trace one of them on the right side of a white piece of paper.
    • Then draw a string coming off the kite on the paper,
    • And a cloud in the sky. :)
  • Cut 5 bow shapes out of construction paper



How to Play:
  • Sit down with your child and demonstrate how to play.
    • Put one of the kites on the paper.
    • Then count out that number of bows as you place them on top of the kite string.
  • Then have them try!


 LB(3) enjoyed playing this game. He is big into counting these days, and while he can easily count past five, this is a useful skill to practice using something tactile to count out.


HAVE FUN!
