Plus, mastering shapes.
Be sure you have access to the Preschool Resource Library to grab all the printables.

Find the Letter A Printable.
I let my 2-year-old work on the first printable and my 4-year-old loved the advanced printable.
Trace the letter B with seeds.
Supplies needed: Construction paper, glue, and bird seeds.
I first drew a Bb on a piece of construction paper.
I then gave my little ones bird seed.
I placed a line of glue on top of the B and let them sprinkle bird seed all over the letter B.

Make an egg broken in half on the white paper. Cut it out and attach to the yellow construction paper with a brad.

Here are 10 Busy Box Activities for this week.
I like to have extra activities on hand to use when my little guys are looking for something to do.
These activities work best if you prep them beforehand.
But there are days where we just do them together!

Tape one apple on each clothespin and have one clothespin for the picture.
Count the apples as your child places the clothespins on to the ruler.

Or beans. Or cheerios. Really whatever you have on hand that is small and round will work well!
