We just did Pond Animals Preschool, and here we are with Reptiles! It just worked out that way. I guess a frog is a reptile of sorts, but one of these activities is only here as it was leftover from Pond Animals.
I liked the creative activities here and hope you also enjoy our 12 Reptiles Preschool Trays!

- Reptile Food Line Tracing
- Measuring Snakes
- Frog “Rain” Tracing
- I’m so glad I found this one — the absolutely awesome Escher Tessellations in a fun Lizard design! (thank you)
- I printed this just as she suggests — 4 copies in black and white. I trimmed them down and presented to him with Crayola Twistables crayons.
- He has been really obsessed with coloring within the lines lately so I hoped this activity would be of interest to him!
- This cool activity was inspierd by this pin and the linked Flickr picture
- First, I made a couple cardstock snakes with the Silhouette Cameo
- Then I gave him a pile of threads and strings to wrap around the snakes. I put a few strands on as a sample.
- These were bead caterpillars during bug tot school, but now they are snakes!
- I folded over the edge of one end of a pipe cleaner (to make it not so sharp), and coiled the other side a little to make a head (and the end for the beads
- Then, I gave him a big pile of pony beads
to make the snakes!
- How cool are these? This is the set of Blending Snake Cards available on Teachers Pay Teachers — thank you!
- I printed them all in color but only gave him a few at a time. After trimming them down I gave him several wooden letter tiles to match to the letters!
- More snakes! Here I made several “snakes” in Word, easily done by making one row tables and filling each cell with the Unifix colors.
- These were printed in color and trimmed, and given to him with stacks of 6 Unifix Cubes.
- This bin was inspired by pin from Little Family Daycare! Thank you — what a great idea!
- I added these lizard figures from Melissa & Doug’s Sunny Patch line. So colorful and durable!
- Along with the rocks there are some artifical flowers (Birds of Paradise are great here!) and moss.
- This is the cute Year of the Snake Maze from Activity Village!
- So many wonderful, whimsical books talk about reptiles! We used the Color of his Own Coloring Page found on Green Bean Kindergarten — thank you!
- To hopefully help E as he learns to read — I underlined each color name in its corresponding color so he could match color and word before filling in the rest of the color.
- Another great maze — the Lizzie lizard maze!
- This is from the Reptile Rascals kindergarten kit from HomeschoolShare.com (thank you!)
- Trace the lines to help reptiles find their food!
- The source of this one is actually: me!
- E has been talking about measuring a lot lately. So, I found some cute snake clipart, stretched and shrunk it a couple times to get different lengths. To make things easier for measuring, I made a solid black line underneath. (Naturally, they are standard, whole-inch measurements).
- Then I made an equals sign and a blank for him to draw in the number, after measuring with the included ruler!
- Leftover from Pond Animals School, this Frog Prince diagonal lines sheet (or as we called it, “rain”) is from Education.com!
This was a really great week of school. The hands-on items were great and he played with that sensory bin for a long time! We even ended up putting all of our rocks together for an even bigger play area for the reptiles.
Cool Reptiles Preschool Books!
