Spring Theme Literacy Activities for Preschoolers
Name Writing in Dirt or Mud – This sounds messy, but it doesn’t have to be! Write your preschooler’s name on a sheet of paper. Then, go outside and practice writing name writing in dirt, mud, or sand. You can use a straight stick as a “pencil”. And if you’re worried about playing in mud, then just make a little mud in a baking tray.
Spring Flowers Alphabet Matching – Letter identification and matching activities are often a must in preschool literacy. Preschoolers work on alphabet skills as they match the upper case letter on the flowerpot to the lower case letter on each flower. See this post for a free printable. If you don’t have a printer, you can make a simple drawing of the flowers and pots.
Spring Theme Math & Science Activities for Preschoolers
Flower Measurement Cards – Print these colorful flower cards and use some dried beans or pebbles to measure how tall each flower is. Get your free printable in this post. If you don’t have a printer, you can simply pick some flowers from the yard, or collect some spring-like items from nature, and measure them the same way. Lay out the object to be measured, and help you preschooler line up the dried beans to identify the height. For example, a tulip might be “15 lima beans tall.”
Spring Nature Walk – Go on a walk and look for signs of spring. Talk to your preschooler about the signs of spring: leaves and blossoms forming on trees, new plants breaking through the ground, bugs coming out of hibernation, etc.
Playful Learning Activities for Spring Time

Seed Sorting – Have some seed packets on hand? How about some dried beans? Invite your preschooler to sort the seed or beans. Try sorting by color or by size. You can even sort by texture or shape. Check out this post for more details.
Duck Pond Cooperative Game – This game is super fun and teaches preschoolers to work together, not against each other.
Spring Themed Indoor Activities for Preschoolers to Keep Them Active
Flower Investigations – Pick some flowers that have bloomed and bring them inside to investigate them. Allow your preschooler to touch and handle them, even pull them apart and dissect them. Discuss with your preschooler what they find and compare the flowers.
Grassy Art – Invite your preschooler to pick some grass or leaves and bring them inside to make a piece of artwork. All you need is scrap paper (or even an old newspaper) as a base and some glue or tape to adhere the grass. Arrange the grass any way you please.
Make Music from Spring Weather – Spring time is notorious for its weather and storms. Listen to some rain and then challenge your preschooler to find ways to mimic the sounds of rain using his body. Watch this video for ideas.
Fun Preschool Activities for Spring Time
Rock Painting – Find a couple of rocks about the size of your preschooler’s hand and give it a good wash. Then paint it. You can also use crayons or markers if you don’t have paint on hand.
Tree Ornaments – Make some salt dough ornaments in the shape of flowers to add some artful fun to the outdoors. Preheat over to 250*. Mix together 2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, and 1 cup water. Knead for 10 minutes, then let rest for 20 minutes. Roll ¼ inch thick, and cut into shapes. Use a straw to punch a hole for the string. Bake for 2 hours.
