  1. Preschool Theme Activity

This activity is actually a collection of several themes like painting, art and paper work or gardening. The preschools vary in their choice of activities in this segment. For example, here they might be required to paste some paper colours into the shape of flowers or a house, make butterflies and build gardens with these colourful paper pieces. They can also be taught to use hand prints for their art work.

  1. Preschool Kitchen Activity

In this section, the kids are introduced to some everyday fruits and vegetables. There are some preschools that teach the kids to make simple burgers and sandwiches. This is not only fun but interesting as well as they feel excited on being able to make a sandwich with their own hands!

The Art Activity

It encourages inquisitiveness and the desire to learn more. They are taught logical reasoning and are also given a first-hand experience of building simple instruments like a telephone with two cups and a string or cable, which makes learning all the more fun. 

Young minds are very quick and dedicated learners. So it is important that you teach them the right things at the right time and in the right manner.
