Welcome to the week of Queens, Quails, Quiet, and Quack!
Preschool Activities for Letter Q
The math concept this week was sequencing. I normally try to combine the theme and our math skill but this week was a struggle.
I found this really cute sequencing activity that uses the book, “There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly,” You can check out this activity by Munchkins and Moms, here.
Our number this week was #3, which is perfect timing since my little B turns three next week.
We used a play dough mat with Q-tips instead of play dough to practice counting to three and to help with recognizing the number.
We also made a three out of bird feathers since our theme this week was birds.
If you haven’t noticed we do a lot of the same activities over and over, mainly because B loves them so much.
Sticking with our favorites, B painted a Queen with her water-color paints and coloring page from, Easy Peasy and Fun.
She completed a Dot page, by the Measured Mom, with a Quail using blue dot markers.
Using block letters from The Measured Mom, I had B glue Q-tips to her letter Q. We started off with just three but my little artist wanted to completely fill in the letter so we of course added more.
Also using a block letter, I let B paint her Q with a feather and then we used that Q to create a Quail, by adding a face, beak, eye, feathers, and feet. I found this super cute idea at Rockabye Butterfly.
This week, we read about Moses and how God provided manna, quail, and water as they traveled through the desert. So following along with God’s Little Explorers suggestion we tried to part the water in the bath tub and discussed how that’s a pretty difficult task without God’s help.

For a fun little game, I had B throw Quarters into a cupcake pan. We practiced counting with this game as well as aim, throwing, etc.
We of course, celebrated this week with a Mexican fiesta. B and the twins helped me in the kitchen to make Quesadillas. They love Quesadillas of any kind.
There is a lot that you can do with any letter from games to crafts, and food to fun books.
As always, I hope that you find some inspiration for your preschool kiddos. Enjoy!
