Preschool Storytime Ideas
Houses and Homes
The concept of home will be one preschoolers understand, and they enjoy stories about construction and home building. A simple craft project involves covering a small milk carton or a small individual cereal box to resemble a house. Kids can add a chimney, front door, even a garden using construction paper. Kids should also be encouraged to make the model look like their homes, which would include apartment buildings and shelters.
