Preschool Lesson Plans: Febuary theme ideas you don't think about.

There are many ideas that have nothing to do with Valentine's Day for February. Here is a quick list of some that come to mind.

  • Bakery unit. I have made a bakery in my class with paper chef hats in the home living center with different doughs they can pretend to bake with. I made a cookie matching folder game. Of course this lends it self to cooking activities and I did a day when we had class on the patio with the kitchens outside. I gave them flour water spices etc. and let them "make" what ever they wanted. This is so messy but so much fun and educational.
  • Game Week. Have all kinds of board games, new games for the computer, and have a final game day with games outside or in a large area indoors if it is too cold.
  • Have a summer in February day. Have the kids come in summery cloths have indoor picnics, beach days and the like. everyone is tired of winter and ready for a bit of summer fun even if it is just pretend.
