Ant Activities for Preschoolers

Ant Theme Preschool Activities

My five year old has recently been very vocal about making requests for our next weekly homeschool units. And it’s been fun because he’s choosing some great topics. First he asked about doing a cat theme week so I rounded up a bunch of cat themed books and put together a lot of great cat activities to enjoy while learning.

Now he’s requested an ant theme unit because now that summer is approaching we’ve started seeing some ants around our house and he’s curious about them. While I dislike having ants in the house, I do love this kind of learning! This is what homeschool is about to me, embracing my child’s interests in order to seize those opportunities for learning and growth. It’s so much fun.

So here are all of the awesome ant activities for preschoolers that I came across as I was doing my own homeschool planning. I hope you enjoy doing a few of these for your own ant unit as well.

The Life and Times of the Ant by Charles Micucci

Not mighty in size, but mighty in resourcefulness and industry, the ant has crawled the earth since prehistoric times. It has dwelt in rainforest tree trunks and acorns of oak trees, beneath logs, and under sidewalks. It has protected forests by capturing insects, cleared weeds away from acacia trees, and by growing gardens has released important nutrients into the soil. Seed lifters, dirt diggers, social beings, ants have the most advanced brain of all insects! So watch where you step, especially on a warm day: a small but mighty ant may be underfoot.

Farm Preschool Theme

Doing a farm preschool theme is probably my absolute favorite preschool theme so far. We did a farm unit last year with a bunch of great farm activities for kids and cute farm crafts that my kids loved. Now we are doing another farm preschool theme week (well, actually two weeks this time since it’s so much fun).

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.
