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:
