Doing a farm preschool theme is probably my absolute favorite preschool theme so far.

Last year when we did our farm theme I went ahead and purchased a few farm theme printable packs that looked really amazing from Sandbox Academy (52 activities), Turner Tots (10 activities), and Planning Playtime (16 activities and 15 worksheets). To me, this was worth it because the activities in these three bundles were good quality and had really fun and unique activities.

Cat Activities for Kids

Cat Activities for Kids

Looking for cat activities for kids? Well look no further. Here you’ll find all kinds of activities, cat crafts for preschoolers, and cat games for kids. It’s all the cat-tastic fun you’ll need for your cat theme homeschool unit for toddlers to 3rd grade (with a few activities great for older kids too).

Cat Activities for Kids

For the past several months we’ve been doing weekly themed unit studies with my 2 and 5 year old. They are absolutely loving doing these. We went through several winter animals during the winter and then this Spring we’ve had a different Spring topic each week like seeds, rain, butterflies, bees, etc.

I love doing themed unit studies with my kids because I feel like they get so much more out of it and learn so much more about whatever topic it is. And the ideas are endless. It’s such a fun way for them to learn while having fun.

But in the midst of my awesome Spring unit study plans my 5 year old randomly requested to spend a week on a cat theme. Cats. Hey, who am I to hinder my child’s learning. If he wants to learn more about cats, then by golly we will learn all there is to know about cats. I’m not particularly interested in cats. I don’t dislike cats, but it’s just not an interest of mine. But hey, who knows, maybe he’ll be the greatest cat veterinarian who ever lived one day. I can’t stand in the way of that.

So I’m in the midst of planning a week of learning about cats. And even though it’s not the topic I would choose, this is one thing I LOVE about homeschooling. I love that I can tailor what we are learning about to my child’s interests.

Interest led learning is so important because when kids are interested in something they are so much more primed to learn. Plus, if they are showing an interest in something in particular, it might just be for a reason. They might be working on making some kind of connections in their minds and as a homeschool parent it’s important to take full advantage of those learning opportunities.

So cats it is.

As I was searching for cat themed activities, here’s a few good cat activities for kids that I came across. Most of them are great for toddlers through 1st grade. Plus a few of these are good for older kids too. So if you’re doing a mini unit on cats, I’ve got you covered. 😉
