With last week’s theme being about spring flowers, this week we have chosen the theme of spring animals. If you can fit in a visit to see some of the baby animals at the farm it’s ideal for this time of year and is perfect to go with this week’s theme. We are featuring a fun preschool picture book as well Sheep in the Jeep by Nancy E Shaw. So go ahead scroll down find some fun activities, extra spring animal books and enjoy a week of Spring Animal Fun with your Preschoolers.

Sensory Activity for a Spring Animal Theme for Preschoolers
In the story, the jeep, sheep and pigs got very muddy.
In fact, most of the animals in spring will end up muddy as the snow and ice thaw and the spring rains arrive. So this Muddy Farm Animal Washing Activity is great for our spring animal theme with your preschoolers.
Spring Animal Themed Alphabet Activity
Our activity for spring animals is a beginning letter sound activity using our farm animals.
It’s a great opportunity to introduce the baby animal names and the letters that they start with like sheep and lamb.
Math Activity for our Spring Animal Theme
This week we are working on number recognition and this fun Cow Themed Number Activity for your preschoolers.
We love that it’s on the verticle but if you don’t have wall space then why not place it on the floor as well.
