Preschool kids and even some toddlers learn a lot of valuable skills doing crafts at daycare. It also gives parents a chance to see what their kids do during the day and get a sense of their level of creativity. Seasonal crafts are always popular, as are makeshift piggy banks and objects made out of old boxes.

We at PeekABoo encourage children to come up with unique ideas and shape their imaginations to life.
The PeekABoo monthly activity calendar is packed with fun, creative activities, including art & crafts that go with each weekly theme.
Our activities encourage a mix of child-led activities and those with gentle adult guidance. Our arts & crafts instructions encourage caregivers to allow for creativity and discovery rather than forcing a fixed outcome.
When children are celebrated for their unique outlook and accomplishments they develop a sense of self worth and pride in what they create.
