With my preschooler home for the school break, it’s inevitable that I will soon hear the whining cries of boredom. I’m betting there’s a 99% chance that you will hear them too. To save my sanity (and yours) I’m sharing some Pre-K stay-at-home activities that I’ve created to help keep my daughter entertained. Hopefully they will keep your kids entertained too.
Make these printables reusable by either laminating or placing in a page protector, then use a dry-erase marker or a Vis-A-Vis pen. Remember to provide supervision when using these, markers have a habit of mysteriously appearing on things other than paper.
We live on a somewhat busy street so we never have to wait long to see a car pass. We make tally marks for each car we see and once she’s bored watching (usually around the 10 minute mark) we add them up to see how many of each color, and how many total cars we saw.
Shapes Around Home
Does your kid get excited when they recognize a shape out in the wild? Mine sure did. Pick a room or let them roam the house and see how many shapes they can find. Not all of the shapes may apply to your home, but they might suprise you with a toy they find to match.
I Spy With My Little Eye
This printable comes with 7 color options; Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, and Choose-Your-Own. Have your kids gather small ojects from around the house or outside that correspond to the correct color. Arrange them inside the border and snap a picture. They can view and share their creations digitally, or you can print the pictures out and turn them into a mini book.

Number writing practice for numbers 1 thru 12. Laminate or place inside a clear page protector and use with markers to make this a reusable activity.
