20 Preschool Activity Instagram Accounts We Love

"Being a parent of a toddler is challenging, but being a parent of a bored toddler is truly difficult."

With social distancing and self-quarantine being in full force amid the pandemic, many parents are searching for activities they can do with their kids between the ages of 0 and 5 years. Luckily, there are tons of awesome Instagram accounts and websites that provide a plethora of ideas. By scrolling through these at night, you can save a few ideas and prepare for the next day.

Even babies get to participate in fun activities!  Emma, a mom of 3 girls, is truly inspirational. She uses simple items around the home like large Ziplock bags, balls, ice cube trays, baking dishes and pots and pans to create innovative play ideas for babies. She has play ideas for preschool.

It’s hard to find activities for children younger than 2, but Hannah provides easy play ideas for babies up to 18 months old. They’re inexpensive, fun and easy to set up using everyday objects! She reminds us how easy and inexpensive it is to play with our kids and promote brain development.

Michelle, from @7daysofplay is a mom of 3 who is the master of creating simple activities for children of all ages. From creating a rainbow by gluing leaves and flower petals or even creating an awesome toy car garage with toilet paper roll, her ideas are endless!

Meghan from @kidsplaytricks has helped me realize how much playtime we can from the items we already have in our home. If you need a preschool curriculum, have a look at her website. She has a great outline of ideas to try out!

Katie manages an account to help provide parents with tons of play ideas for their kids. If you are looking for toy inspiration, playroom set up inspiration or DIY play inspiration you can check out  @early_childhood_fun101.

Lucy of @findthelittlemind does such a fantastic job at using items you have at home to create fun activities, such as creating a flower with paint and cutlery!  She has tons of ideas for developmental learning, like improving fine motor skills by inserting pipe cleaners into straws. 

Allison from @inspired_little_learners teaches that even everyday tasks can be play activities.. With toddlers, you can teach them to bake, pour, spray, wash, cut and more. Even giving a child a small bowl of water and a sponge is an activity.

Sensory play is one of the best ways to allow kids to develop their attention span since they remain very focused. Marisa is the boss of stunning sensory play! From creating an arctic scene using ice, to an apple tree with different dried beans and rice, her ideas are infinite.

Not only does Veronika provide us with stunning arts activities, she also creates cute learning activities for preschool as well. Her creations may look difficult to recreate sometimes, but they are always easier than you might think.

Kendra’s posts on @learning.for.littles are fully in the theme of play-based-learning. Her ideas are simple and target important developmental milestones in preschool. Matching, counting, and sorting are all important skills for children to learn, and she covers them well.

Molly’s activities from @littleoneslearn illustrate just how simple it can be to teach children preschool concepts. What we love about the account is that any of the activities don’t require much, if any, set up at all – no need to create Pinterest perfection here! We love how she has highlights sorted by age group.

Vicki from @howweplayandlearn has such a colourful IG account filled with simple ways to help our children learn as they play. She has tons of word or letter recognition ideas to help with pre-reading skills, and we love that she uses items most of us have at home.

Sole’s account, @coffeeandspitup, will make you feel like she’s a lifelong friend! Learning through play is what she focuses on. This is a colourful account filled with easy play ideas to encourage learning in the preschool years.

Scrolling through Luisa’s @tinyn3rds account, you get the sense of a science background. This awesome mom has a Ph.D. in chemistry!  She mixes science with art to teach kids about both creativity and science all in one. 

The account @busytoddler has amassed over 800k followers for good reason. Susie Allison is an early childhood education advocate, former teacher and mom of three. She shares a variety of activities for children of all ages. Plus, they’re super easy to set up.

If you want to introduce lots of colors into your kids’ lives then @cintaandco is the account to follow. It’s run by an Australian mom of three who also happens to be a scientist with a Ph.D. Think color recognition games, fine motor activities and so much more. 

Helping in the kitchen is a fun and important activity for kids. That’s why  @heather.happykidskitchen is amazing. Created by Heather, a mom and cooking instructor, it contains lots of healthy recipes,  tips, and tricks on how to involve kids in the kitchen.

If you’re like most parents and looking for indoor activity ideas then you should consider giving @dayswwithgrey a follow. It’s a page curated by Beth, an educator and mom. She shares easy and fun learning activities perfect for keeping young kids busy and entertained.

One of our favorite Instagram accounts to follow is @bestideasforkids It’s run by Kim, a mom of two, who’s incredibly talented when it comes to coming up with fun craft ideas. Her page is full of short video tutorials on how to make things like Easter bunny cards using cotton balls.

For older kids who enjoy arts and crafts, @recycleandplay has great ideas using mostly recycled objects and things that would go into the trash. The activities are sourced from other accounts, which makes it super easy to find more!

Being a parent of a toddler is challenging, but being a parent of a bored toddler is truly difficult. Thankfully, there are incredible women out there who are pros at coming up with and sharing fun, easy and crafty activities for kids of all ages—and they do it for free. We hope you give them a follow!
