Process Art teaches abstract concepts in a fun way.

Sometimes it can be challenging to teach more abstract ideas to preschoolers. They’re definitely more focused on literal and present ideas. That being said, even littles can still develop an understanding of topics like migration if you teach it in a fun and creative way.

Process art projects can be just the thing to get the job done because these types of art projects focus on the process of creation rather than the finished product. It gives kids a chance to get really creative while learning!

Check out the preschool safari migration process art activity below to see how you can use art to teach your littles in a fun and engaging way.

The best part of going on a safari is seeing all the exciting animals!

Safari Animal Crafts

My son says the lions are his favorite. Who doesn’t love the king of the animals? If you’ve got a preschooler who loves lions or a fun lion-themed lesson coming up, you’ll definitely want to check out my fun paper plate lion craft. For more fun, check out my paper bag lion puppet!

Paper bag lions and paper plate lions can be used to bring fun stories to life like Aesop’s The Lion and The Mouse. Using a puppet, is a great way to encourage participation and even practice narration with shy learners too.
