Be sure to grab your preschool activity calendar! Celebrate all of August’s holidays and special days with books, printables, and hands-on fun!
August is jam packed with a variety of holidays and special days that will engage and excite your preschoolers. Today, I’m sharing a brand new edition of my monthly preschool activity calendar.
Throughout the month, you and your little ones will explore August’s special days with books, printables, crafts, and more!
Preschool Activity Calendar: August
Print out this month’s activity calendar. Hang it in a prominent place so you’ll be able to reference it all month long. Each morning, check the calendar to see what that day’s activity is. If there isn’t an activity scheduled, have your child choose a fun summer activity to do.
This month, celebrate each special day with these activities or come up with one of your own:
August 2 | Ice Cream Sandwich Day
August 3 | National Watermelon Day
August 4 | National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day
Read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie today. Then, let your preschooler choose one or more of these If You Give a Mouse a Cookie printables and crafts for preschoolers. Of course, you may want to whip up a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies, too.
August 5 | Friendship Day
Celebrate Friendship Day by reading Frog and Toad Are Friends. Plan a play date with some of your preschooler’s friends.
