I will be the first one to admit that my kids go to preschool for a reason: I am not great at teaching them academic skills, but I know that with summer around the corner I need to come up with some ways to keep the kids engaged all summer, and keep them learning! Especially with Jack starting kindergarten in the fall, summer school work packets are going to be a must this year. I am excited to have teamed up with a couple of lovely ladies to bring you all some free preschool printable’s for all your littles to use this summer too!
When I decided to put together school work packets for the kids I knew just who to go to for advise and help. If you don’t follow Melissa and Alison on Instagram, you’re missing out. They post ways they do preschool at home most days and are so inspiring. Both ladies were teachers before having babies of their own, so they know their stuff. So with that being said, I am SO grateful they shared a few ideas with me for this post, but be sure you head to their blogs to get WAY more ideas!!
I am going to share how we are using these packets in our home, and then I will be attaching the free preschool printable’s for these fun activities.
How I am I using the printable’s
I did a post a couple of weeks ago about a schedule for summer for my kids. They are working on school work every morning while we get things ready for the day. I have taken most of the printable’s above, and laminated them. For the activities that the lamination worked for I figured that was less work for me as the summer goes on. There are some days where the activities will also include simple things like working on writing 3 letters on paper.
Each kid has a binder and I will pull the pages they are to do out each morning. I am hoping this keeps things organized and simple to keep us doing it all summer!
Also I am not a fan of normal dry erase markers for my kids because they aren’t washable, so I keep a pack of these on hand for activities like this

I would love to see you and your little ones using these preschool printables this summer, so be sure to tag me on Instagram if you try them out, and I hope you enjoy!
