So this one was a little out there, even for me.  But I really do like to challenge my kids, and liked the idea of making multiple pieces that created one big story at the end. So after we talked about rules, I told my kiddos that our theme today would be "Mad Libs."  So... Continue Reading →

I've done several storytimes about body parts, but this is the first one I did solely about hands.  Eye hand coordination is obviously very important for a child's development, so I think I picked some great stories, rhymes, and an activity to help with that. Stories "High Five Animals!" just came out and it is... Continue Reading →

I got this idea from a STEM post I found on Pinterest, involving cups, straws, and putty.  I failed BIG TIME, so I decided to scrap it and turn it into a Lego Challenge instead. So after we went over rules, I told my kiddos that today they could build anything they wanted, but our... Continue Reading →

This one is kinda like my opposite storytime, which I'll write about later, but talking about size is another easy theme.  And talking about perception is a great way for kiddos to learn about how to more effectively communicate through classification.  So here's what I've used to talk about size.

I based this one off a paper bag challenge I saw on the Pinterests, but I put a little spin on it.  So after we went over rules, I told the kiddos that today would be a "free build" and they could build anything they wanted.  BUT they had to spend the first 5 minutes... Continue Reading →

This one was kind of a repeat of a Lego challenge I came up with last year.  That time we made a huge obstacle course for our cars, and it was a lot of fun.  This one was really similar, in that kids had to make a car, but they also had to build a... Continue Reading →

When I post on our Facebook page, I try to keep it as engaging as possible.  Just putting your information out there isn't enough, since you're competing with so many other businesses and people.  Photos and memes are a great way to grab people's attention and ensure that your audience just doesn't scroll past your...
