Making this panda craft will take a little bit of prep when you’re going to make it with preschoolers.

When making this adorable panda craft with preschoolers, it’s best to prep the popsicle stick base (either with the preschoolers help or not) the day before so that the glue has time to dry. The other option is to use glue dots for assembly instead. These do not require dry time. The parts for this guy are small and should be cut out ahead of time. You preschooler will love wrapping the yarn and assembling the this panda craft. Get the full tutorial and free template HERE.
I love using recycled newspaper for crafts, and this panda turned out so cute. Your preschooler will love tearing the newspaper that goes inside and crumpling it into balls.

If you really don’t want to get out the paint for this pig craft, use crayons instead. He goes together quickly and easily. You may want to precut the ears since that can be a little challenging.

These adorable peas in a pod are the perfect letter P craft. Write the letter P on the front of the pod or sight words that start with P.

P is for Pineapple
To make this craft doable in one sitting, create the popsicle stick triangle the day before so that the glue has time to dry.

You can find the tutorial HERE.
P is for Pear
This super simple pear craft goes together quickly. If you don’t want to use paint, just use crayons, markers or paint sticks for the popsicle sticks instead.
