A free February activity calendar for preschool! Celebrate holidays and special days with books, winter printables, and hands-on activities for little ones.
February is full of fun holidays and learning opportunities for preschoolers. I’m back with another installment of my preschool activity calendar.
This month, kids will explore several holidays, work on fine motor skills, read some great books, and more!
I’m looking forward to sharing some great ideas with you.
Preschool Activity Calendar: February
Print out this month’s activity calendar. Tape it to your refrigerator, or hang it up in your playroom. Each day, check the calendar for a new activity. If there is no activity listed, let your child choose a fun activity to do.
Here are some links and ideas to help you complete the activities on February’s preschool activity calendar:
February 2: Groundhog Day – Watch the news with your child as they pull Punxsutawney Phil from his burrow. Talk about sun and clouds and shadows. Let your child play with the flashlight and make shadows on the wall. Print out the activity pages in this Groundhog Day printable, and incorporate them into your homeschool lessons.
February 3: Feed the Birds Day – Let your child make one of these ten easy bird feeders or just sprinkle bird seed in the yard. Then, watch the birds through the window.
February 11: “Heart” Animals – After reading My Heart is Like a Zoo, let your preschoolers make animals out of hearts.
February 12: Lincoln’s Birthday – Introduce your preschooler to Abraham Lincoln with a beginner biography.
February 16: Spiders – After reading The Very Busy Spider, your preschool will love working on their motor skills as they make their own paper plate spider web.
February 17: Random Acts of Kindness Day – Challenge your preschoolers to complete three Random Acts of Kindness today.
February 20: Snowflakes – After reading Snowflake Bentley, make paper snowflakes with your preschoolers.
February 21: Puffy Paint – Make your own puffy paint, and then let your preschooler paint a snowman.
February 22: Washington’s Birthday – Introduce your preschooler to George Washington with a beginner biography.
February 24: Ice Painting – Make ice cubes with colored water leaving a toothpick sticking up in the ice cube tray. Once frozen, let your preschoolers paint with the melting colored ice cubes.
February Picture Books
Fill your book basket with a great collection of children’s books. Most of these books can be found at your local library or used bookstore.
If you have a hard time finding them, you can order them through my Amazon affiliate links by clicking the images below.
George Washington – Bright, appealing artwork and simple words introduce the youngest readers to our first president with engaging anecdotes, beginning with how young George liked to study and ride his horse.
Snowflake Bentley – From the time he was a small boy in Vermont, Wilson Bentley saw snowflakes as small miracles. And he determined that one day his camera would capture for others the wonder of the tiny crystal. Bentley’s enthusiasm for photographing snowflakes was often misunderstood in his time, but his patience and determination revealed two important truths: no two snowflakes are alike; and each one is startlingly beautiful.
My Heart is Like a Zoo – A simple heart shape and bright primary colors become lions, herons, and other zoo animals. Entertaining short sentences about each animal are fun to read, and as kids learn their numbers they can count the hearts that make up each animal.
