Ideas for Preschool Summer Fun

Ocean and Beach Crafts

Jellyfish
Children glue streamers to the edge of a paper plate. Attach a second plate on top of it with glue or staples. Children decorate the plates as the Jelly fish body.

Sand Art
Have children use glue to draw a picture on construction paper. Top with colored sand of their choice and shake excess sand off.

Wave Bottles
Fill a plastic soda bottle half way with water that has been tinted with blue food coloring. Then add vegetable oil. Secure the bottle’s cap tightly. Just tip the bottle to make waves!

Sun Fun

Sun Painting
Place various shaped flat objects on a dark piece of construction paper. You can cut out shapes and designs or use common objects like a ruler or key. Place paper in direct sunlight for a few hours. Show children how the sunlight faded the paper, leaving dark silhouettes.

Oh Mr. Sun
Oh Mister Sun, Sun,

Oh Mister Sun, Sun,
