Unicorn Activities is a magical theme that preschoolers always love. Additionally, morning tubs are filled with enchanting hands-on learning experiences, perfect for kiddos as they arrive and settle in for the day. Also, Unicorn Math and Literacy Centers add a touch of whimsy and are fantastic for several reasons.
- Socialization: The activities provides opportunities for children to engage in collaborative learning through small groups, they can share materials, tackle challenges together, begin conversations, play, and learn with their tablemates. These activities foster teamwork and communication skills.
- Creativity and Play: Both are something we can build and increase by spending time working on it. Math and Literacy Centers are a perfect way to introduce a little more play and freedom into learning rather than traditional worksheets or morning work that kept kids busy but did not encourage creativity and play.

Unicorn Preschool Activities
Unicorn Bridge Patterns
Complete the pattern shown on the card. You can also encourage preschoolers to copy the pattern by placing their linking cubes in the same sequence. They can work individually or in small groups, helping each other if needed.
Hide & Seek Unicorn Graphing
Next, let’s engage in a counting activity by counting the quantity of each item and fill in the graph based on our findings.
Encourage preschoolers to count aloud as they tally up the quantities for each.
Unicorn Juggler 10 Frame
Continue counting practice as you place a star or a manipulative item (such as a counter or a sticker) in each box of the 10 frame, matching the number of stars on the page. When you count the exact number, you are also working on one to one correspondence.
Unicorn Horn Alphabet Trace
Let’s use a hands-on activity to practice to practice letter recognition. We will make each target letter using playdough or trace them with a dry erase marker, and then cover each letter with a small manipulative.
Beginning Sound Unicorn
Another great learning opportunity while promoting phonemic awareness and letter sound recognition, while making the learning experience enjoyable and interactive.
First, look at the pattern sequence and encourage children to carefully analyze what comes next in the sequence. Mark the correct box. This activity helps promote critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Unicorn Cloud Tracing
Use markers or dry erase markers to trace each cloud shape, additionally while working on fine motor skills.
Unicorn Library Sight Words
In this activity, children will practice recognizing and matching target sight words. Next, say the word aloud and search for its match on each card, then mark the matching words accordingly.
Different from the other activities, this craft is so much fun! Create the perfect Unicorn headband by coloring and decorating with stickers, stamps, or paint. Staple or glue the strips for your head piece.
