Homeschoolers Finish Strong! 10 Preschool Activities to Keep Littles Busy

New Millennium Girl Books for Girls










Homeschoolers Finish Strong!
Ten Easy Activities to Keep Preschoolers Busy


Many of us want to finish strong and complete a few things before we call it quits for the school year. Homeschooling with toddlers and preschoolers can definitely add challenges towards that goal. One thing that helped me through those years with my toddler was to do the more important subjects during nap time.

Also I noticed if I spent one on one time with my little one first before I started with my school age child, it satisfied their need for mom-time right off the bat.  For families with multiple children, scheduling each school-age child with easy activities to keep preschoolers busy helped create a peaceful home and nourished the young child’s need to be involved with the family.

Toddlers are some of the busiest people! With some creativity, you can keep those little hands busy while developing their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination to 
Time spent on getting these activities together will reap big rewards! Preschoolers can glean loads of educational skills with their “school” assignments and grow in independent learning.
