Preschool Morning Basket Ideas | Meekly Loving by Sydney Meek

We added a morning basket to our everyday routine over a year ago, and it has turned into one of my (and my daughter’s) favorite parts of the day! Before I share what’s in it and how we use it, I thought I’d explain a little bit about what it is.

Contrary to its name, a morning basket is not limited to only being used in the morning, and it does not need to be an actual basket. It can be used any time of day and could be a designated desk, shelf or any kind of container. A morning basket holds several toys or activities for your child to explore that engages their mind and keeps them entertained. It can also be tailored to any age!

We’ve been using Tiny Theologians’ ABCs of God’s Attributes cards for our memory verses and have been working our way through Then Sings My Soul Hymn Journal, so I keep those in her basket along with this Coloring Keepsake Bible that we read every morning. I also compiled a list of my favorite biblical resources for littles in a blog post here!


We also have what we call our “morning binder” with dry-erase (these are the BEST washable dry-erase markers) and velcro activities. I laminate all the pages (here are the links to our laminator and pouches) and keep them all in a 3-ring binder. Here are all the printables I keep in ours:

Now for the fun part! How often you rotate is totally up to you – I like to rotate ours weekly and throw in some toys or small activities that haven’t been played with in a while.


I also like to include a few coloring pages with markers, crayons or colored pencils, along with fun stickers or stamps for my creative girl. And BOOKS are another great addition! We read lots of books in our house, so I will sometimes even change them out daily.

I hope this post gave you some inspiration and ideas for your own morning basket! Of course, it will look different for every age, but this is what has been working for our family with littles (here’s a link to my blog post with our homeschool pre-k routine). Let me know what you keep in your morning basket!
