Neither printables nor Google was a thing until my kids were teens. Boy, do I wish I had these when they were young! My (then) ADHD son (now severe mental health diagnosis) really needed to be active100% of the time.
In my preschool I used I Spy and Scavenger Hunt as quick fill-in activities because these low-key activities exercise learning skills.
SCAVENGER HUNT benefits: (both ABC Scavenger hunt and Picture Scavenger Hunt)
- Excercise the body and mind
- Reinforces problem solving, i.e. vital critical thinking skills
- ABC builds literacy skills
I SPY benefits: Math, Visual Learning and Memory skills
Coloring Pages: These are cornucopia’s so kids can practice food identification. Use to talk about being thankful for plenty of food for Thanksgiving meal.
