Alex did some fishing for shape fish. I cut out fish from construction paper, added a paper clip and drew a different shape on each fish. I made a fishing pole out of a dowel we had on hand, some string and a magnet. I laid them all out on a big piece of newsprint we had. When Alex caught a fish he had to identify the color and shape on it.
Alex did some camping printables from 2 Teaching Mommies He did a prewriting sheet, a letter C tracing sheet, and a sorting of edible and unedible items worksheet.
We made some S'mores on a stick. I put a bunch of marshmallows onto clean craft sticks. I melted some chocolate chips, while I told Alex to smash up some graham crackers. We dipped the marshmallows into the chocolate and then into graham cracker crumbs. We had S'mores on a stick, simple, fun and yummy!
I set up a blanket over the kitchen chairs and Alex pretended it was a tent. I made him a pretend campfire from toilet paper rolls and red and yellow tissue paper. I gave him a flashlight to play with too. Alex loved it. You can't forget how important pretend play is at this age.

I had a hard time finding preschool camping themed books, but this is what I found. Alex enjoyed them.
