Doorway bean bag toss- made my own version of this using all felt and with monsters where the bean bags go through their mouths. Anyway, my boys really like it and get excited to play when I pull it out. And it was really easy to make. The hardest part was cutting all the felt. I finished it in a couple of days. And I glued it all- no sewing!

Memory popsicle stick game. Made these for Anna's best friend's birthday. I decided to laminate the popsicle parts before putting them on the sticks, to make them more durable. I accomplished this by using photo-sized laminating sheets and having the bottom (flat) end of each pospicle stick out just a tiny bit from the edge to leave that part open for inserting the popsicle sticks.

Easter Egg Option - Egg Carton Color match
Egg Carton - colored eggs in a carton - could color the carton holes to match the eggs to the hole? One mom put upper and lower case letters on her eggs to add more matching.
Busy Bag Idea: Something to do with all those left over plastic eggs from Easter! Simple but young toddlers will love this. Cut an egg carton in half, and fill with diff. colored plastic eggs. Use colored markers to color the bottoms of the egg carton and the child can practice matching up the colors with the eggs.

Wiggle worms: Draw worms and hearts on strips of paper. Sit in a circle on the floor. Take turns passing the bag around the circle and pulling out a strip of paper. If you pull out a "wiggle worm" then everyone stands up and wiggles. If you pull out a heart then everyone gives each other a hug, or comes in for a big group hug.

To make this game, you'll need to print out two game boards and then write the 12 different times two times each on the foam shapes or your own cards (so you'll have 2 sets of 12 times for a total of 24 digital times) AND you need to write "Time is Up!" on 5 shapes/cards. Students work in pairs to play and one partner pulls out a digital time and places it on the matching clock on their board.

Colorful sensory bags! I made these and my preschoolers, kids in the church nursery, and my own kindergartner LOVE these. 1/4-1/2 cup dollar store clear hair gel, food color (regular and neon) and freezer quart bags. These are fun in the light box and for color exploration too.
great idea for writing without pencil and paper - fill plastic ziplocs with cheap hair gel and food coloring. tape them to a table with masking tape and have students practice letters and/or sight words by using a fingertip or q-tip to press lightly on the top of the bag. when they have filled up their space with letters/words, they can smooth the gel out again and start over @Trinity Christian Preschool Poquoson
