As we gear up for the holiday season, the Preschool November Morning Bins are a must-have! They are hands-on, educational, engaging and FUN! Furthermore, they offer a wide variety of language and math skills, along with fine motor, social/emotional, and my personal favorite, dramatic play!
Most preschools have a scattered drop-off time, so mornings can be chaotic. Therefore, it’s crucial to have a consistent plan of activities for these young students to participate in as they trickle in. The Preschool Morning Bins are exactly what you need to start the day off in a positive, focused and stress-free way! These hands-on activities provide an ideal opportunity for preschool students to practice basic skills to warm up their minds and be ready for the day.
