Practice Prepositions and Following Directions: Picnic Activity
We’re Going on a Picnic is a multipurpose language activity targeting one-and-two-step directions and prepositions.
Preparation Time: ~15 minutes.
Here is a sneak peak of what you will find inside:
- Instruction Sheet
- Picnic Table and Picnic Blanket: Print both images and attach two strips of velcro to the ends of the picnic table. Place the picnic blanket on top. This will create a space underneath where children can explore putting items “under” the picnic blanket.
- Picnic Icons: Children can enjoy decorating their picnic table with snacks, sweets, and other fun treats!
- Picnic Friends: Four friends can be found within this activity. Cut along the dotted line and fold the rectangle over. This will allow our friends to appear as if they are “sitting” at the table.
- Prompt Bubbles: Prompt bubbles are included in this activity but optional to use. They feature statements such as, “Put the cheese on top of the sandwich” or “Show me something you eat. Then, show me something you drink.” Feel free to create your own prompts!
