This week following our theme for All About Me last week we are expanding and looking at our communities. From the people that we meet day to day to our wider community and the people in the world. We celebrate how diverse our world is. Our featured book this week is All Are Welcome Here by Alexandra Penfold and is a celebration of this. So here you go our community theme for preschoolers.

Community Theme Activity Plan Schedule
Each week we provide 5 simple and easy low prep activities on the theme for you and your preschoolers to do.
Although we don't have a set schedule we do have one that works for some families, where an activity is recommended per day throughout the week, starting with a sensory or play idea.
Here's the example schedule
Of course you don't have to set the activity up like this you could have a day where you focus on the activities and themes or introduce more activities per day (to help we have included our Pinterest board below for you to find more ideas).
