Preschool Time

I've gone back and forth on doing official 'preschool time' and just doing fun activities with the kids. It seems like a little bit of each is the perfect thing right now.
I've come across some really great blogs and sites in the last few weeks from former and current educators/moms that have reminded me how much I really love child development and this fun preschool age. Some of the sites are great because they have super printable materials for preschool themes that make a great starting place for planning the more formal preschool time. Others I love because they are full of fun ideas to play with your kids and help them learn through play.

Homeschool Creations has some great activities.

More great printables too at Confessions of a Homeschooler (She has a very thorough collection of Alphabet printables and activities that I think I'll reference often). And, some more fun things at 1+1+1=1 .

And a few more that seem pretty cool so far:
