All About Me activities are fun for preschoolers to learn about themselves! When teaching All About Me, children learn about their name, family, and discover their likes and dislikes.
An All About Me unit is also the perfect time to teach your child about their body, its parts, and how it works.
Here are some fun All About Me Activities:
1. Measuring Activity- Hands & Feet (Little Bins for Little Hands)
This is a super simple activity that helps your child practice tracing and measurement skills. Use blocks, toy cars, or any other small object to measure the drawings.
2. Self- Portrait Drawing (Preschool Steam)
This activity just uses a mirror and a dry erase marker. Your child will love to draw their reflection.
3. Roll to Draw a Body (I Heart Crafty Things)
All you need is a die, and your child can practice drawing body parts. Not only is this is a preschool skill, but it is also a skill necessary for kindergarten readiness.
4. Hair and Why It's There ( A Little Pinch of Perfect)
5. Fingerprint Exploration (Mom to 2 Posh Divas)
This activity shows children that they are unique right down to their fingerprints!
This activity helps preschoolers measure their height, arm span, and different body parts. They can also compare their measurements to a sibling or another family member. If you don't want to use string, you can also introduce a measuring tape to your child.
7. All About Me Pizza (Prek Pages)
This yummy food idea is great since one important preschool skill is to follow directions. If you don't have a person shaped cookie cutter, just use an entire tortilla to make a face. Choose healthy food choices such as cucumber slices for the eyes, string cheese hair, etc. Your child will have fun making their food person.
8. Mr and Mrs Potato Head Craft (The Suburban Mom)
This Potato Head Craft is a great opportunity to talk about body parts and their names. It also helps your child to work on following directions, cutting, and pasting.
9. Playdoh Faces (Mom Inspired Life for Pre-K Pages)
Use the blank face template in my All About Me printable pack to make a playdoh face. You can have your child color it first, or print on colored construction paper. You can also laminate the paper (print on cardstock first), to have a continuous activity.
10. Clothespin Names (The Teaching Zoo)
This super simple activity helps your child practice spell their own name. After they master their own name, teach their middle and last name as well. It is also good fine motor practice using the clothespins.
In my Preschool Curriculum, I have even more fun All About Me activities. It includes a lesson plan that covers important standards necessary for preschoolers to learn, as well as simple, yet fun activities.
