Are you ready for Spring? Yeah, me too! I can not wait to pack away my winter jacket and boots! Even if we still need those boots for recess we can make our classrooms an oasis of springtime with these fun spring preschool activities. I have included crafts, beginning literacy activities, preschool math ideas and more. I hope these spring preschool activities can help you have fun learning playfully at home or at preschool.

I’m a children’s librarian who relies on your blog for engaging storytime activities. Now that my public library is closed, I am using your activities with my four-year-old niece. Her preschool is closed, and her mom (my sister) is working from home. Thank you for all that you are doing!
