Preschool students and teachers form a bond throughout the school year. Summer vacation presents an opportunity for new activities for the preschool student away from school. Before leaving school for the summer, the teacher may give the child a gift that provides entertainment and fosters continued learning throughout the summer months.

Colouring Sets

Small colouring sets will give children an activity to do during the summer when they are not outside. Include a small colouring book and a set of five to 10 crayons. Once the child has finished colouring, she will need to hang her picture up. Provide a small magnet to hang the coloured picture onto her refrigerator at home.

Plastic Magnifying Glass

The summer is a time of exploration for preschool students. Give the child a small magnifying glass. This magnifying glass can be used to explore items both indoors and outdoors. It will help the child start to notice the little things when outdoors, such as bugs and designs on leaves and flowers.

Water Toys

A small water gun or squirt toys will help the children remain cool during the summer. Look for deals at discount stores, such as ones where you can buy several toys for a dollar.


Bubbles will entertain a preschool student for extended periods during the summer. Purchase each student a small container of bubbles with a bubble wand included. The child can then blow bubbles and chase them throughout his yard during the summer months.

Inflatable Beach Ball

Balls provide entertainment for children to play with both alone and with friends or parents. A small inflatable beach ball is inexpensive and can be played with both indoors and outdoors without the risk of causing significant damage in the home.


Stickers can be used for a variety of functions for both children and adults. The stickers can be used by the preschool student to decorate pictures or other artwork completed at home. Parents may use the stickers to give to the student during the summer as a reward for completing tasks such as cleaning her room, brushing his teeth or listening to directions.


Give each student in the classroom a book. This will encourage the child to continue learning throughout the summer months. The parents and child can share the reading experience by reading the book each night before going to bed during the summer.
