Build Self-Esteem Through Literacy Skills

One more excellent way that activities like crafting benefit preschool age children is by building self-esteem.


The sense of achievement our children feel when they look at their creations builds their confidence. They have overcome the challenges of when things did not work out, tried new ideas and fixed mistakes made along the way.


1. Do a craft for St Patrick’s Day on March 17th!


Think green for St. Patrick’s Day! This is your daily activity challenge: Draw a big capital "G" on paper. Then, on the letter, draw or write as many green items as you can.


This project allows us to put our thinking and learning skills to the test. Preschoolers learn colour recognition and organizational skills through this activity.


2. Practice literacy skills through instruction


Our children learn new vocabulary from instructions and discussions. They also learn how to follow instructions and improve their communication skills.


Tell me how you decided to make this; Why did you choose that colour?


3. March 19th is International Read To Me Day!


We have chosen a wonderful classic "The Rainbow Fish" by Marcus Pfister as our read aloud story today.


After finishing the story, try this extension craft to continue the conversation. Kindergarten Connection provides a craft that is simple to make and allows children to be creative.


What is your favourite book? Can you draw a picture to show what you liked about it?


4. Celebrate the First day of Spring with another awesome hands-on activity!


Happy First Day of Spring! We are looking forward to the growth of new flowers and greenery in our garden after a long, chilly winter. Let's add some colour to our homes by upcycling old egg cartons with Happy Hooligans' DIY.


5. Celebrate and educate about Ramadan!


Eid Mubarak! For many of our HIPPY families, Ramadan (which began on the evening of March 22, 2023 and will end on April 20, 2023) is a great opportunity to spend more quality time with parents, siblings, and even extended family.

Include kids in the moon-sighting tradition by creating your own binoculars by Hello Holy Days! You can use these binoculars twice: first during Ramadan to spot the crescent moon and again at the conclusion of Ramadan to spot the crescent moon of Eid Al-Fitr.
