Teach your little kids about all things science with this fun science preschool monthly theme! Explore Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and of course Engineering with lots of kid-friendly activities and experiments. So many awesome ideas for inquisitive little minds! You’re definitely not going to want to miss it!
The little guy and I both love all things science and our science preschool monthly theme was no exception. It was hand’s down the best month we’ve had and I wanted to share lots of activities and experiments with y’all.
Each of the links will take you to the three activities that we did for that particular topic and I also shared the links to the individual posts for a few of the activities too.

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.
Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
The first week, we explored Chemistry. The topics were Properties of Matter, States of Matter, Mixtures, Reactions, and Molecules.
We asked the question who is a scientist? And we used this fun rainbow water beads activity as an introduction to the idea of science as a career.
The little guy had a wonderful time pretending to be a scientist and learning about what they do.
These Rainbow Sensory Bags were the perfect opportunity to experiment with color mixing and how combining primary colors creates secondary colors.
This was definitely one of the little guy’s favorite activities this month. And we’ve continued to come back to it throughout the last few years. He still loves it to this day and he’s been known to ask for it over and over again. Every time we do this activity, we invent a new color and it’s nothing less than magical for him.
Creating chemical reactions with baking soda & vinegar is a classic science experiment with so many possible variations. And still, little kids love it. This is one that you’re definitely going to want to try with your toddlers and preschoolers.
We love salt painting! It creates such beautiful art that literally sparkles.
Week two was all about Physics, which included Sound, Light, Force, Friction, and Gravity.
During the third week, we learned about Engineering. The topics were Electricity, Structures, Fasteners, Magnets, and Parachutes.
And last, but not least, was Biology, which included Living and Non-Living, Growing and Changing, Adaptation, Germs, and Ecology.
It was for sure an amazing month of science preschool monthly theme activities, don’t you think?
We’ll be doing this same theme again in a few months and I’m really hoping that we’ll be able to share some of the other topics and activities that we didn’t get posts written for the first time around.
Don’t forget to stop by next week if you’re interested in seeing what we’re up to with our A to Zoo Animals theme. And if you missed this year’s preschool homeschool space post, you can check it out here.
