Projects for Preschoolers

When it comes to working on craft projects, a lot of valuable lessons can be taught. Children need to learn listening skills, how to follow directions, patience, fine motor skills and sharing. Developing these skills enables them to enter kindergarten at a comfortable level.

When I choose projects for my children to work on, I take two things into consideration.  One, how much work will the child be able to do.  I want the project to be easy enough that the preschoolers I work with are able to contribute enough to the project to be able to call it their own.  And two, I make sure that the projects are not all cutting and pasting construction paper.  I like using materials that give texture and dimension.

Just a note to daycare providers...I hear often from frustrated providers who say they spend a lot of time and money making crafts with the kids only to feel unappreciated by the parents.

Remember, you're making projects for the kids.  You're providing a fun time and valuable preschool lessons.  Regardless of what the parents say or do, the kids got what they were supposed to out of your hard work.
