Games I Use

For our daughter’s preschool I have done a lot through games.

I got flash cards and magnet (letters/numbers). A simple cookie sheet makes the magnets stick so the child can match them to the cards. 


For shapes/colors I got construction paper and cut out shapes. Then colored some clothes pins with markers to match. For white I had to cut out paper and glue it in. Also, my construction paper didn’t come with brown. This is also good for motor skills with using the clothes pin. 


The beanbags I got from Amazon. I use the bucket so she can throw them in the bucket once she gets the bag I ask for. Our daughter loves to have me move the bucket so she has a moving target. 


These popsicles are from Amazon. She can go by color or letters. Each popsicle has 2 letters one on the front and one on the back. Very well made in my opinion. 


Egg shapes are from Amazon. Each egg is a different shape and two eggs are the same color so she can’t just go by color alone. I like these because they are really sturdy. The case isn’t sturdy though. 


LeapFrog Fridge Magnets are great. They have a song for each letter, a sentence using a word starting with the letter and a word starting with the letter. Plays the alphabet song and a little bit of Wheels on the Bus.

Review: Djeco So Pop

Our daughter loves arts and crafts.  Djeco So Pop  is another amazing art project that she had a blast doing. I got it through Timberdoodle and it also comes with their PreK Curriculum Kit . The kit comes with 4 different projects and all the pieces you need to put them together. This particular kit came with little envelopes for each project that had sequence in them so I popped out each item for the projects and put them in the envelopes so everything would be ready go when do each one. Djeco also give you a glue stick so you can glue the pieces on the boards but I have found the glue they provide isn’t that great so instead we use hot glue. What I really like about Djeco art kits is that they give you a little booklet that shows where to put each piece on the boards. It shows you through pictures so if your child doesn’t read yet it’s not a problem. Easy for a young kid to follow and great for the parent because you don’t have to read a lengthy instruction book.  I’
