This preschool numbers activity worked on following directions, reading, and identifying numbers and their values.

I have been wanting to do some sort of Build It Blueprint activity with you for a little while now. So when I created our galaxy prints with watercolors, I knew they would be the perfect backdrop for a galaxy activity. I combined that idea with the idea of creating Build It Blueprints and I am so happy with the results. We are also using the prints we made during our Galaxy Painting activity as the backdrops for our galaxies.
