Featured on Mom's Library: 5 Activities for Busy Preschoolers

Tomorrow my 5 year old heads off to full day kindergarten. For the first time in 3 1/2 years I will be home all day with only one child. My boys can fight with the best of them, but they also love to play together. I think my little guy, Tyson, will really miss his big brother Logan. It will be an adjustment for all of us. Tyson may need a little additional help in keeping himself entertained. I was happy to find wonderful preschool activities linked up to Mom's library last week. These will be great for keeping my three year old entertained. This week I am featuring 5 activities for keeping a preschooler entertained.

Fantastic Fun and Learning-- Shell Activities for Kids
I love the idea of setting up invitations to explore, create, and play with shells in an open-ended way. I think my son will especially love this invitation to play with coconut scented playdough and beach objects.

There's just one Mommy -- Mural Drawing
My 3 year old is a great artist and would love to create a mural like There's just one Mommy shared. The open-ended creativity would be great for helping Tyson learn to adjust to playing more independently without big brother.

SNACK BREAK! Crystal & Co. -- Letter of the Week Snack K is for Kite
Just because my 3 year old is the only child left at home, doesn't mean I'm going to leave him hanging at snack time. I love these letter of the week snacks from Crystal & Co. because they are cute and easy. There are other letters featured in her post as well.

Gift of Curiosity-- Play Foam Sensory Fun
Play foam looks like another hands on activity that would be perfect for preschool aged kids. I love how Gift of Curiosity added a few props and watched the creativity blossom.

Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails --DIY Pool Noodle Pom Pom Shooter
This pool noodle shooter is so simple to make by following Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails tutorial. I know you are probably thinking this shooter wouldn't be fun without a sibling to play along. However, think how fun it will be for the 3 year old to be armed and dangerous when big brother comes through the door!
