Preschool Themes with Activities for Your Interest Learning Centers!

Writing preschool themes and lesson plans is by far my favorite thing to do!  

As preschool teachers, we use traditional and not so traditional preschool themes or topics.  Themes are used to develop their curriculum.

On this page, you will find an ever growing list of themes to choose from!  To date, there are 147+ themes below to choose from!


Most of the preschool themes below include enough activities for you to run a full week's theme.  

You will find age appropriate activities for your Interest Learning Centers including art, science, math, dramatic play, writing, reading/library, easel, cooking and more!

I have a developmental, hands-on philosophy and the activities you find here will reflect that!
