Preschool printables are a great way to encourage early learning in children. All our printables were created with preschool kids aged 3-5 in mind.
You can use them as part of your homeschooling curriculum or just to expand learning while at home. They’re also a great guilt-free way to keep young kids busy for a few minutes while you get some work done at home!
All of these fun printable activities and worksheets were created with preschoolers in mind.
There’s super fun games like ISpy and game printables, learning activities like name themed printables, printables that teach colors, matching and sorting, counting, graphing, and shapes, as well as great printable resources for fine and gross motor skills and emotions.

Preschool Tracing Worksheets
Tracing worksheets are the best way to introduce fine motor and pre-writing skills to preschool aged kids. They’re low pressure; little ones don’t need to know how to draw the object they’re tracing. Tracing worksheets are also fun for preschoolers because they feel more like an activity than a lesson.
By incorporating tracing worksheets into your preschool lessons plans you’ll give your child the best head start in learning to write and draw. It’s also a good way to teach two skills at once, like letter recognition and pencil grip. Tracing activities are also a great way to build the strength and coordination needed for writing later on.
Alphabet Preschool Printables
Although it’s not the be all, end of all preschool learning, parents often want their children to work on learning the alphabet. Focusing on a child’s ABCs at the preschool level will help give them an edge when they start kindergarten. Some schools even expect children to have reached this milestone before starting!
By adding alphabet printables for preschool aged kids into your learning plans you can help your preschooler master those important pre-reading skills. Once kids learn how to read and write the alphabet you can move on to teaching them to read and write words!
Fun Activities & Preschool Printables
Learning should be fun, and even fun activities can be part of learning! By mixing fun activities for preschoolers into your day you can keep kids more engaged in their learning. Of course, even a game printable is teaching your child important life skills like turn taking and counting.
Fun activities are also great to keep on hand for times where you need your preschooler to do a quiet activity. That being said, try and do some activities with your preschooler when you’re home together too! After all, the best way for young children to learn is through their parent or caregiver’s example and attention.

Emotional Themed Preschool Printables
Although preschoolers are becoming more verbal, if they aren’t familiar with their emotions they might still throw tantrums because they’re not able to convey how they feel with words. Emotional activities for preschoolers give young children an opportunity to learn the language they need to communicate
Once your preschooler has the basic emotions down (and can usually use their words to convey them) you can start working on expanding that understanding with additional emotional learning. This includes introducing more complex feelings (eg. terrified or surprised instead of scared) and recognizing emotion in others.
Preschool Themes for the Year
Preschoolers can be easily overwhelmed when you try and introduce too much at once. Generally speaking, preschool aged lessons plan and early learning should mostly be play focused and child led. Of course, a little encouragement to learn doesn’t hurt either!
By choosing themed units to study with your preschooler you can better encourage learning on that topic. You’ll be able to focus all your attention and plans on that one theme which means more exposure for your preschooler.
You can create your own themes or purchase a premade bundle of preschool themes for the year so that everything is age-appropriate and easy for you to implement.
Wondering if you preschooler is ready for kindergarten? We have a quiz that helps to determine which skills your child might need to work on before entering school. Just answer the questions based on selection of common kindergarten readiness topics and you’ll be given a detailed assessment with advice on how to improve any weaknesses.
This preschool quiz isn’t meant to determine how well your child will do in school, but it can be used to help decide where to focus your preschool educational activities to better prepare for classroom work.
