Children can explore books through their senses and with a hands-on approach while learning and making memories. These preschool books and the activities that we’ve come up with…are popular children’s books that are fun to read, and fun to play along with! These are book extension activities that we’ve read and come up with book-based sensory play ideas, regulation ideas, fine motor activities, crafts, and more. Check out the list below, because these are some of our favorite ways to use books in therapy activities and learning!
The fine motor activities for preschoolers page is another great place to find activity ideas to meet the needs of preschool children. Many of the book activities here incorporate developmentally appropriate play activities using these concepts.
Preschool ACTIVITY Books
We love coming up with fun crafts and activities based on favorite books. This is a collection of crafts and activities that go along with some fun books for Preschoolers, Toddlers, and School-aged kids.
Kids remember the activity that you create for a book long after they’ve read a book. So often, my kids will say (out of the blue), “Hey Mom, remember when we made bear puppets?” in reference to our We’re Going on a Bear Hunt activity.
We love to create multi-sensory play and learning enrichment activities to extend themes of books. We’ve covered many Preschool books and activities in our blogging days, but also many school-aged books with creative play and learning ideas. We’ll be adding to this page, so be sure to stop back for more fun ideas!
