Since the COVID19 quarantine started, one of the things I have done for my readers is to go LIVE on my Facebook page and make simple preschool crafts with everyday materials they probably have at home. These free streaming preschool activities are perfect for 3-6-year-olds, and younger kiddos could do it with help. I will continue to do this through mid-June when my preschool school year ends. What I love so much about streaming preschool crafts live is the feedback I have gotten from my students and families but also from children all around the world who are stuck at home because of Coronavirus. This post will be the headquarters for all my live-streamed videos, after the live stream, I will post them here so you can watch them and create with your children, or send this to your students to create at home.
Free Online Preschool Craft Tutorials
These videos are for children to watch with adult support. From time to time, I give caregivers “jobs” to do during the crafts, but most steps can be accomplished with just a little help. The supplies needed for the preschool crafts in each video are listed below the embedded video. I hope you enjoy these free streaming preschool activities as much as I enjoy sharing them.

Love your online crafts. I didn’t know you lived in Washington. I was so happy to hear that. I live in La Conner Washington and am missing all my preschool friends. I have forwarded your email to our preschool manager and asked him to put on our web page so our families can craft and have fun with their kiddos. Thanks for crafting online. Stay well.

Thank you so much – it’s such a weird time and I hope this helps in some way.
Thank you so much. Love all your creative ideas. Great ideas that inspire and help in these times of self Isolation.

I love your craft videos. Would it be okay for me to share for our local public library summer craft and activities for 4-6yr olds.
