Here is a free printable fruit and vegetable count and color activity for preschoolers.
With all the time we’ve been spending at home , I’ve started creating my own fun and engaging printables for my daughter. These help keep my preschooler learning and having fun while we make the most of our self-isolation.
My 4.5 year old is constantly on the move which makes concentrating and focusing on one activity difficult. So, I am so excited that these count and color activities hold her attention for a at least a half hour
She confidently exclaimed that she “loves” coloring her fruits and veggies. So, I’d say that this count and color fruit and veggie activity is a huge win in our house!
Since she loved counting, coloring and practicing her fruit and veggie vocabulary so much I decided to share this printable with you all too!
