At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Beaumont, we have proudly maintained a high quality, educational preschool program for many years. Our “Hug First, Then Teach” philosophy allows each child to learn and grow in a safe and friendly environment and at an independent pace. We believe that your child should not only learn when in preschool, but also when at home. There are fun and educational ways that your preschooler can have fun and learn when not at preschool, and below we have listed some games that you and your child can enjoy together.

Educational play with building blocks

This game can teach your preschooler how to count or spell. Materials needed:

  • Building blocks
  • Some paper and a crayon

If you want to teach your child how to count, you can create a counting graph on the paper. Write large numbers from one to ten on the left side of the page, then tell your child to place the appropriate amount of building blocks on each line. If you want to teach your preschooler how to write the alphabet, write large letters on the paper then ask him or her to trace each letter using the building blocks.

Connect the dots

This game will help build your preschooler’s counting skills and shape recognition, and improve motor skills. You can use a chalk board for this game or some paper. Draw simple shapes and let him or her connect the dots to draw out the shape. If you add numbers to the dots, it will also teach your preschooler to count.

Painting with sponges

This game will help your preschooler improve counting skills and and teach him or her how to recognise different numbers. Materials needed:

  • Child friendly paint in different colors
  • Sponges cut into the shapes of different numbers
  • Some paper

Place all of this on the floor and help your child dip a number sponge in the paint, then press it onto the paper. Paint the numbers in any order and ask to name each number as he or she paints. This is a fun and educational activity.
