Looking for play-based, super fun, easy-for-you Preschool Activities for your kiddos?
The October Preschool Binder is packed with a variety of preschool skills practice, all while playing with toys, playdough, and common craft supplies
Why are our Monthly Preschool Binders so popular with moms and teachers…
- Building Independence: Kids are able to work on their own or in small groups at their table to use their binders. It encourages them to self-start and learn/play on their own.
- Easy Prep: Print and slip the pages into sheet protectors. It’s that simple! No cutting and laminating required.
- Play-Based: These interactive, hands-on activities are built to engage little minds, use multiple senses, and make learning ridiculously fun.

October Preschool Binder Activities
Pumpkin Alphabet Makers
Combine some science fun with alphabet work by pretending pumpkin insides to make these alphabet letters.
Make a Jack-o-Lantern face using only the featured shape. We used out favorite shape buttons or you can use black shape cutouts.
Candy Corn Counting
Use candy corn, mini erasers, or foam stickers to count the correct number into each jar.
Dough and Movement
Mix the fun of gross motor movement with sensory fun. Kids follow the visual instructions to build the figure. Then they make the movement.
Alphabet Match and Stamp
Use this activity a couple of ways. Line up matching magnet letters underneath each row or use Alphabet Stamps to stamp the letters.
Pipe Cleaner Color Sorting
We used long pipe cleaners and craft tubes for a very 3D color sorting activity. You could also use small candies, buttons, or playdough balls to sort into the circles.
Spider Crawl Measurement
Use spider rings or mini spider toys to measure and compare how many each line is long.
Build social, emotional skills with these emotion jack-o-lanterns. Kids can see the emotion word and use the visual clues to make a face.
