This week we asked: What do your preschoolers look like?

(Read more about Natural Learning on our resource page, and enjoy this week’s articles on preschoolers.)

From Shannon: “I’m always amazed when Moira takes a big developmental leap. Her latest is the ability to come up with her own ideas without nudging from me. I showed her a box of mini clothespins, and she decided the best plan was to hang a little clothesline so she could ‘wash’ her dolls clothes.”

From Shannon: “She decided to make a drum after watching an episode of Cailou. I let her direct its creation, and then the problem solving when the string kept coming loose and the lid kept popping off.”

Shannon blogs at Pineapples & Artichokes.

From Lisa: “Beyond ready for preschool: Runs in and doesn’t look back…then cries when I pick him up because he doesn’t want to leave!”

Lisa C blogs @ My World Edenwild.

“‘Mom, I’m a dragonfly!’ (By that, I think he meant butterfly, and I’m pretty sure that’s his cocoon.)”

Gaby blogs at Tmuffin.

At four years old, he loves to examine bugs of all sorts.  Ladybugs are one of his current favourites!

Cynthia blogs at The Hippie Housewife.

Defne performing at Musical Theatre

Her mother Isil blogs at Smiling like Sunshine.

Esther enjoys a ride on the tire swing at our favorite park.

Sarah blogs at Parenting God’s Children

Mikko, here at three years old, is learning how to operate a sewing machine and helped his mama, Lauren, sew a mei tai for his little brother. Sometimes Mama could do with less help…but she’s trying to be a patient teacher! She’s found it helps to set up little ones with their own scrap fabric and let them do tasks they enjoy — like cutting, or pressing the sewing machine pedal.

Lauren blogs at Hobo Mama.

From Kristin: “Here are my preschoolers mixing up some octopus soup in the mud pie kitchen.”

From Kristin: “This summer we had three preschool-aged kids (!), and they all had a blast making and playing with this “house” on the beach.”

Kristin blogs at Intrepid Murmurings.

Always having fun!

From Dionna: “My preschooler is fascinated with superheroes and bad guys. And to him (for a little while longer anyway), mama is still Wonder Woman.”

Dionna blogs at Code Name: Mama

    Such darling pictures. Immediately made me want to look at my own no-longer-preschooler’s pictures. He’s 13 now. But the memories never fade. Happy trip down memory lane.

    I loved my visit here.
