Enable Preschool Learning with Colorful Rugs

When deciding what learning tools a preschool classroom should have, it’s important to utilize age and size-appropriate items.  This includes basics such as desks and lockers and when children are comfortable in a fun and encouraging environment, they are more likely to participate.  Considering preschool students are at an age where their developing brains absorb stimuli and information like a sponge, incorporating a good Learning Carpet is critical to helping them excel in their future endeavors.

Here are several categories to help you navigate through our vast selection of learning carpets and narrow down what you’re looking for:

Shapes & Activity Rugs

These rugs teach students on multiple levels.  Many of these rugs teach a combination of colors, shapes, numbers, letters, and animals.  A perfect example is the ABC And 123 Animals Carpet by Flagship Carpets.  This carpet is a great choice for covering several learning topics at once.

How to Make a Paper Snowflake

Gather your classmates, co-workers and community family and host a paper snowflake craft event. (If you are like us and live in a warmer climate zone like Texas, then your only chance for snow might just be by making paper snowflakes.)

Collect colorful construction paper, scraps of holiday wrapping paper, and paper bags.  Provide scissors, paint or markers, and if you’re really brave- glue and glitter. Have a contest for the best paper snowflake and then offer to decorate a local nursing home, homeless shelter, fire station or other organization with all of the snowflakes created. Print, share and be merry!

No two snowflakes are alike, but here’s a template to get your beautiful winter wonderland started!
