Preschool Prep: Science and Nature
Is Science and Nature part of your Preschool Prep? How do you teach Preschoolers about Science and Nature? Simple. Lots of hands-on exploration and activities. Children are naturally curious so build on that curiosity and you will be surprised at how much they will learn.

What is Preschool Prep?
Do you have a young child or two who has outgrown Tot School and is ready for Preschool? Have you looked at all the free online choices during your preschool preparation? Does thinking about preschool curriculum make your head spin? Well, I know that the amount of free “Letter of the Week” and “Themed” curriculum is astounding.
I am creating the Preschool Prep series to help other moms and caregivers out! I have spent lots of time researching and planning for Preschool for Lil’ Red and I want to pass on this wealth of knowledge and resources to my readers!
I plan to share a variety of ideas and ways to prepare yourself, your environment, and your child for preschool in a multi-part series. I could create a super long and over whelming post with tons and tons of ideas, but I do not want to add frustration to your Preschool Prep situation. I want to share ideas for learning letters, numbers, colors, shapes, name recognition, character studies, etc. I will share with you very simple activities you can create yourself or some items you could look for during garage sale season. I am hoping to lessen your time and the amount of money you spend by sharing what I am doing.
Science and Nature
Take a walk around your yard, block, park, or neighborhood. Head to a nature park if you have one nearby. Be sure to take a magnifying glass or box with you to get an up close look at the new things you might find! Check with your states Department of Natural resources for free local field guides or stop by your library for resources for your area.
