Preschool Science

Toddler and Preschool Science Activities

Welcome to my 10 Days of Preschool Science series. Please remember that each post was done over several days and could easily be turned into a week’s worth of activities or a unit study. We did not do each activity in a day. Pick and choose what will work with your children. Try something new. This is a list to get you started.

Be sure to check out my Nature Study Printables for Toddlers & Preschoolers e-book. It has all the printables for this series and more all in one download!
