Earlier this spring I was pretty ambitious. (Spring does that to you!) I thought I would have NO problem setting up several weeks of sports-themed preschool. But when it came down to it, there was a bit too much overlap with similar activities. So it was nice of course to have some more school prepped, I did decide to split these sports preschool themes up a bit. So finally let me serve up a short set of 8 Tennis Preschool Trays!
- Spelling Tennis with Wooden Tiles
- Tennis Ball & Rubberbands
- Pom Poms & Tongs
- Colorful Tennis Rackets
- 1-30 Number Matching
- Mini Sensory Tray
- Beads & Bracelets
- Disney Tennis Coloring Page
- We need to learn how to spell “Tennis”! We will do so with wooden letter tiles.
- We did a similar activity during hockey preschool, so here is a different version for tennis preschool!
- See how many rubber bands you wrap around a tennis ball!
- We are going back in the archives a bit for this fine motor activity!
- Of course we need green http://amzn.to/2a2NSYB”>Gator grabber tweezers, and tennis ball-like neon greenpompoms.
- Finally, you probably recognize the IKEA silicone ice tray!
- The tennis racket on this coloring page is from the sports balls & equipment clipart from Teachers Pay Teachers seller Tracee Orman!
- I printed six of them up on the page and gave him SuperTips markers to color them in.
- Here I decided to utilize a few of the the approximately 2 million tennis ball-shade of green labels I have…
- First I cut out 30 circles in thin green cardstock with a 1″ punch and drew numbers 1-30 on them with a Sharpie.
- Then I also wrote the numbers on green labels, placing 1 and 30 on their respective cardstock circles.
- E: You can match the rest!
- As usual, the tidy tray was involved with a homeschool sensory activity!
All I put out here was plain salt, yellow lentils, a sifter, a paintbrush, and some containers.
- Here is one of my go-to activities in tennis-esque colors of course. This is simply pony beads with plastic pony beads bracelets.
- You can find these bracelets at Oriental Trading (referral link) – search Pony Bead Bracelets and find them in several colors.
- I printed out this coloring page of Goofy playing tennis and teamed them with a whole bunch of Crayola Twistables crayons.
Another tennis preschool idea that I had but didn’t use this time was to look at courts like this beach tennis court. But as tends to happen during summer homeschool, we couldn’t get to all the activities in mind!
This was a neat little theme and I hope you can use some ideas in your own week of sports homeschool preschool!
