Has anyone ever used busy toddler’s playing preschool curriculum? I pulled my 2.5 year old out of preschool for the year but I’m looking for some kind of curriculum to do at home for a few minutes each morning while my kindergartener is at school and I’m not good at coming up with things myself.

After pulling my daughter from preschool I bought Busy Toddler and Blossom and Root the early years because they were both on sale. I had them printed and bound into books. I highly recommend- https://learnplayprintingco.com/ They are a new printing company that caters to the homeschooling community.
I haven't started using either yet but I already love the B&R program more. I haven't 100% decided but I think I'm just going to do that one this year. It just seems like a better fit for us.

@oldschooolmama: oh thank you! I’ll look into blossom and root. I want to get whatever I go with printed as well.

@oldschooolmama: Thank you for your recommendation. I just bought B&R for my four year old who will be home this year! There’s a 30% code on their site now so it was a super good deal.

I’ve been doing it off and on with my almost 3 year old. My 5 year old enjoys some of the projects too (since she’s stuck here doing distance learning). It’s pretty basic and you can do most activities for the day within 30-60 min, so I do like that it’s quick. It requires a little planning ahead to make sure you have what you need to cover the topics of the week, but it’s usually stuff you’d have on hand.

My sister has been doing the playing preschool curriculum for a few weeks (she also pulled her son from preschool for the time being). She’s happy with it. Easy projects, takes about an hour each day. They actually are doing preschool 7 days a week because it gives her an hour each day where she doesn’t have to plan the activity herself!
