4th of July Preschool Matching Mats

We love sensory bins! I just can’t ever pass up a great opportunity to put together some fun sensory bin activities to match our different themes! And as LG gets older, our collection of academic sensory bins grows!

These sensory bin matching mats are a fun addition to your 4th of July theme whether you choose to use a sensory bin or NOT. Simply provide your kiddos with the cut out pieces and help them make their matches on the matching mats! This set practices shapes, colors, counting, beginning sounds, and letter identification!

Finally, one of our favorite activities each month are our themed worksheets. Using worksheets with preschoolers may sound a little odd, but LG LOVES these practice pages! All of the pages include coloring, cutting, gluing, tracing, and more! That way your kiddos are combining fine motor skills practice with academic skills! With 40+ practice pages, this NO PREP set is a lifesaver!
