Sensory art activities are great educational tools for children. As your little one heads to preschool this fall, he or she may do these types of activities with classmates. One example of a sensory art activity is a leaf rubbing. Your preschooler can select a large leaf with visible veins, place it on a mat with the vein side pointed up, and place a piece of white paper on top of it. Then, your preschooler can rub the paper with a crayon to bring out the pattern of the leaf, and then paint on top of it with watercolors.
You can see a demonstration of a leaf rubbing by watching this video. This art expert also offers some tips for using this sensory art activity to begin science-related discussions.
Children’s Learning Adventure offers child care and preschool programs with a dedicated art studio to encourage children to develop creative expression. Parents can call (888) 674-1487 to reach one of our preschools in Arizona, Nevada, Texas, Colorado, or Oklahoma.

During the last week of July, children enrolled in child care programs at Children’s Learning Adventure explored the wonders of the great outdoors with our “Camping in the Backyard” theme. Kids worked on their direction-following skills to create fun art projects, such as vegetable prints and nature prints. They also enjoyed using the parachute, which helps strengthen listening skills and encourages group collaboration.
Our well-rounded weekly curriculum included activities to strengthen language and literacy skills. Our child care group read some exciting books about camping, such as Curious George Goes Camping. We also had fun while practicing walking like animals, which improves gross motor skills. Then, we exercised our scientific reasoning skills by comparing hot versus cold items, matching moms to babies, and participating in a treasure hunt.
These are just a few of the exciting activities the child care programs of Children’s Learning Adventure planned. For more information, parents in Arizona, Nevada, Texas, Colorado, and Oklahoma can call (888) 674-1487.

Increasingly, children as young as the preschool years are spending more time with electronic devices and less time exploring nature. Past generations spent endless hours entertaining themselves with mud puddles and insects. These valuable outdoor experiences have been scientifically proven to encourage emotional well-being in preschoolers and facilitate problem-solving abilities. Try the following nature-inspired activities to encourage your preschooler to develop a love of the outdoors.
Preschoolers can work on basic scientific skills such as logic and reasoning while exploring nature. Challenge your little one to determine whether the sounds he or she hears outdoors are natural or manmade. Find some animal tracks and follow them, while trying to guess which creature made them. Hang a bird feeder together and spend some time observing its visitors. Help your child name the different birds with a bird identification guide.
The great outdoors can even inspire language arts activities. Collect some objects outdoors with your child, such as stones and flowers. Encourage your child to imagine stories about these objects, such as a “flower person” who lives with the forest creatures.
Preschools begin working on pre-math skills, such as shapes, colors, and sorting. Challenge your youngster to find various shapes in nature, such as oval leaves and rectangular pieces of bark. Examine the patterns in nature, such as leaves growing directly opposite each other on a branch. Compare and contrast objects found in nature, such as the rough texture of bark versus the smooth feel of a leaf.
Structured activities help kids build an academic foundation and a love of nature. However, free play is also essential for a child’s well-being and development. Encourage your child to experience nature by smelling the rain and making mud pies. Observe awe-inspiring lightning with your child—from a safe vantage point indoors, of course.
The Nature’s Nook specialty classroom at Children’s Learning Adventure instills an appreciation of the outdoors in children while teaching them valuable academic skills. For more information on the specialty classrooms for our preschool and child care programs, parents are invited to take a virtual tour on our website or give us a call at (888) 674-1487. Our child care, preschool, and after school programs are available in Arizona, Nevada, Texas, Colorado, and Oklahoma.

Did you know that President Ronald Reagan declared that the third Sunday of July would be known as National Ice Cream Day? The entire month of July was then designated as National Ice Cream Month. While most youngsters in child care programs and preschool don’t really need an excuse to enjoy ice cream, this month offers a good reason to turn ice cream into a learning experience. This July, encourage your preschooler to celebrate with you by exploring ice cream via literary, artistic, and culinary means.
After your youngster’s child care program lets out for the day, head for the local library. Help your child learn to use the library’s computer system to look up books about ice cream. Look for picture books in addition to non-fiction books that explore how ice cream is made. Encourage your child to work on his or her vocabulary by reading the books together.
It’s easy to buy ice cream from a store, but making ice cream at home provides valuable educational opportunities. Have your child help you follow a homemade ice cream recipe. Your child can practice measuring the ingredients and adding them to the ice cream maker. Afterward, your preschooler can be the official ice cream taste tester!
Create personalized ice cream bowls with your preschooler. Apply rubbing alcohol to a plain white ceramic bowl. Make sure the bowl is oven safe. Provide your child with Porcelaine paint pens. After the two of you draw fun designs on the bowls, let them air dry for 24 hours. Then, bake the bowls at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for about 35 minutes, or as instructed by the label on the Porcelaine paint pen.
Children’s Learning Adventure provides exceptional child care programs with a focus on themed curricula. This summer, the youngsters in our child care programs will be exploring the great outdoors and celebrating events such as National Ice Cream Month. Parents are welcome to schedule a tour of one of our child care programs in Arizona, Nevada, Texas, Colorado, or Oklahoma by calling (888) 674-1487.
