School’s out for summer! At Little Sprouts that means some of my little kids leave for the summer and my school age kids are here every day. Obviously it takes a different finesse to teach and entertain a 10 or 11 year old than it does a 2 year old, right?
Teaching a plant theme for preschool is a great way to teach kids lots of science as well as give them sensory experiences that are hard to get other ways. Kids love to watch things grow. You can make your theme as simple as germinating a few seeds or take it all the way to a huge garden.
Summer is a fun time for preschool. There is so much to celebrate and learn about. Here is a list of summer theme ideas for preschool.

Sometimes a rainy day gets out of hand. That’s the perfect time to create an indoor obstacle course for your kids. Use up that energy, be creative, and have hours of fun!
