We’re still working through our Birds & Eggs preschool monthly theme and today’s topic is Bluebird. Today’s Hidden Feathers Bird Activity for Toddlers meant a fun opportunity for baby girl to work on hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.

Bluebirds can often be found on trees or fences. They have round bellies, long wings and short legs. Bluebirds have incredible vision and can spot an insect on the ground 60 feet away.

In some ways, the last few weeks have been a blessing. The kids and I have had so much more time to play together. Just the three of us. We’ve made fun crafts, read lots of books, and spent some time outside.

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.

This was such a quick & easy activity that we switched up a bit from the Little Goose Toddler Teacher Guidebook. We’ve been purchasing this supplement each month because it adapts the activities in the preschool curriculum to be developmentally appropriate for baby girl.

I love this additional resource as it makes my life as a homeschool mama so much easier. There’s absolutely no lesson planning and no researching skills or standards. This entire preschool curriculum is open and go. How simple is that?

We definitely love it and wouldn’t trade this wonderful curriculum for anything!
