I love preschool crafts. There’s just something about getting tiny hands involved in making art that is too adorable for words.
Plus, PreK crafts give preschoolers a chance to work on fine motor skills, color recognition, shapes, themes, and more!
And that’s why I thought it would be cool to find some easy PreK beach crafts for kids that would be perfect for summer art fun.
After all, you only get a couple of summers to enjoy with your preschoolers before they become…gasp…kindergartners.
There are 35 different preschool beach crafts below, so you’ll have to plenty to choose from this summer.
If you make a few, let me know which ones your kids loved the most!
Read on to see the full list and to score a printable preschool summer activity calendar featuring beach activities to try!
If you’d like to share even more preschool fun at the shore with the kids, be sure to check out our Beach Number Playdough Mats!
