Free preschool printables for homeschooling are a must have for anyone teaching from home. Even if you buy a whole curriculum, some of the worksheets and activities these moms come up with are amazing! Included in my list of free printables are learning worksheets, printable crafts, organization planner, and even homeschool room decor printables.
When we first decided to homeschool (our kids were originally going to go to public school *gasp*) I was very overwhelmed and nervous. Then I discovered the world of homeschooling moms.
Homeschooling is basically a huge community with unlimited resources and endless support. Seriously, I’ve never met a homeschooling mom not willing to help anyone and everyone. So if you’re overwhelmed and nervous like I was, don’t be. There are so many free resources out there for people just like you.

This year (actually this week that I’m writing this) I’ve started preschool with my oldest, Oliver, at home. Honestly, I thought that it would be stressful and that I wouldn’t be able to do it. But we both love it so much. I look forward to getting to sit down and spend some time with him.
For the most part I use a pre-k workbook with Oliver. However I love to supplement these printables to break things up a little for him. Oh and I’m also really terrible at crafts so I depend on other people’s creativity on Pinterest.
- Trace & Color Alphabet ~ This is one of my favorite places to get free printables! All you have to do is enter your emailonce and you get access to pages and pages of PDF files of amazing printables.
- Same or Different Worksheets ~ These are really great for teaching the concepts of same and different to kids. This is something I would never think of without seeing it on the internet but can be a great tool!
- God Made a Colorful World ~ I love this book so much! Besides being an awesome way to help kids learn colors, it shows kids how God made everything around us.
- Color By Number ~ I loved color by numbers when I was a kid but there were only a few in each coloring book we got. This is a good way for kids to practice numbers and colors at the same time.
- Pre-Writing Worksheets ~ These worksheets are a great resource to let kids practice the motions of writing before they try to start learning how to write numbers and letters.
- Animals Number Coloring Pages ~ This is really cute way to teach kids how to count and how to pair what they’re counting with the number. Oliver learns a lot easier when it has something to do with what he likes and all kids love animals!
- Monthly Reading Charts ~ I remember having something similar to these as a kid and it was my favorite part about finishing a book. You can make it super fun by offering a fun prize at the end of each month if the chart is completely filled in.
- Fine Motor Skills Packet ~ This is a great packet for fine motor skills practice such as cutting, gluing, tracing, and more.
- Number Tracing 1-20 ~ Kids can practice tracing numbers all the way up through 20.
- O’Fish’ally a Preschooler ~ We’re actually doing this craft today! Like I said, I need really simple crafts and this one was super cute and easy. Plus kids just love having paint on their hands.
- Watercolor Jellyfish ~ I think this is the cutest thing ever! I’m totally saving it for a themed week with lots of fish activities and maybe a special trip the the aquarium!
- Nest and Baby Bird Craft ~ Oliver is really obsessed with birds. I even hear him talking to them sometimes when he’s outside. So this is one the I know he will really love.
- Bug Craft ~ I don’t like bugs, like not even lady bugs. But these are the cutest little things and I know Oliver is going to loveee them.
- Mouse and Cheese Craft ~ I may have traumatized Oliver once but freaking out about seeing a mouse in the basement. This craft may redeem mice for him.
- Loop Schedule Planner ~ This is a great way to schedule time, depending on how you prefer to do it. I think this is the easiest way so you’re reinforcing the same things every day instead of doing it once a week. But it completely depends on your own routine and how you like to schedule your days. If you’re unsure try looping, you might like it best!
- Report Cards ~ I know, I know you’re thinking what the heck do I need to do this for? But they can help kids learn to take constructive criticism, can help kids see what they are good at, and can help you keep records of their progress and see what you need to spend more time on.
- Homeschool Planner ~ This is a great free planner, designed specifically for homeschooling unlike the ones you buy at the store. It includes a title page, grade sheets, curriculum plan sheets, notes and ideas sheets, 12 month full spread, 4 week lesson plan sheets for each month, weekly schedule sheet, reading log, and a website and password tracker.
