A list of simple kids’ activities, each with varying preschool themes, will really come in handy as you make plans for your students. Don’t get me wrong – there are some preschool activities that are more complicated, with more moving parts, that are full of tons of fun and learning for the children. But sometimes the simpler, the better!
That’s where this list of simple preschool activities comes into play. Each of these projects can be done with three or fewer items. Check them out and let us know your favorites in the comments below!
I am definitely of the opinion that children can have fun without too much fuss! So today, I’d love to share some simple kids’ activities that include 3 items or less! Many great ideas were shared at last week’s Stress-Free Sunday, but I wanted to focus on those with the easiest prep time today. Without further ado . . .
Below are kids’ activities from last week’s link up. Each of them has 3 “ingredients” or less to create some FUN for the kiddos!
With our love of open-ended, hands-on, easy play, you know Fun-A-Day has some ideas to contribute!

Hands-On Preschool Materials
It is imperative that we keep our classrooms stocked with materials that will give our students the hands-on learning experiences that they love (and need!). There are a few specific things that I always keep on-hand in my classroom. Check them out in the list below.
I may get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.
- Safety scissors
- Dramatic play items
- Math manipulatives
- Dry erase markers
- Sensory items
- Play dough
- Craft supplies
- Playground balls
- Music and movement tools
- Books, books, and more books!
When it comes to preschool, this list is really just skims the surface of the wide variety of materials that can be used. The best thing about this age group is that they learn the most while playing. So, whether they’re playing on the playground, building with blocks, or creating a masterpiece, rest assured that the children are learning so many important skills, all while having fun!
