Help Preschoolers learn some basics with this fun patterns game that Jessie is sharing today! Hi everyone! Jessie here, and it’s great to be posting here on OSSS again. I’m really excited to share this post with you because we’ve had such a great time playing this game. Let me give you a little background…
Hi everyone! I’m Jessie, a new contributor here on OSSS. My amazing hubby and I have two little girls, ages three and one, who love creating, learning, and trying new things. I’m so excited to be able to share some of my preschool-oriented activities with you! Hopefully your kiddos with find these activities as fun and helpful as mine have. There should be a little something for everyone with these five ideas.
I’ve been looking for fun ways to bring a little more meaning into my family’s Christmas this year. It’s so easy to get caught up in all the presents and shopping, and to forget what we’re really celebrating this time of year!
I plan on looking into those more next year when my little man is a little older and can understand more, but for now Christ-centered Christmas books are going to be my main focus. He loves being read to! Plus, it’s never too early to start teaching your kids about Christ, the nativity story, serving others, and the spirit of Christmas.
For homeschool, we learned all about bees. Have you ever learned about bees?? Holy smokes, those things are AMAZING. In a future post, I’ll share with you some of my favorite products for teaching kids about bees. But in the meantime, I wanted to share this project with you… making BEESWAX CANDLES WITH KIDS.
These beeswax candles make great gifts (free printable gift tag included!), home decor, and fun memories of making them with the family.
Hi there! It’s Sierra here from the Blue Robin Cottage! Most of you know by now that I love blogging, crafting and sewing but what you may not know about me is that when I’m not doing those things, I am all about Preschool! I teach children ages 3-5 (such a fun age group right?!) with a focus on music and movement. I’m a also a huuuuuuuuge fan of Halloween! So today’s post is all about fun, easy and educational Halloween activities for kids, plus books and songs for your little ones.
So for last year’s homeschool, we studied slavery and the Civil War… all year long. That’s how I love doing history. We just take a small portion of time and spend the whole year really getting in-depth. This year we’re doing the Industrial Revolution, Great Depression, and World War I, so you can plan on…
Today I just wanted to share some of the books I’ve read (and loved) recently and a few quotes I picked out while reading them. It’s a random assortment of reading material, but that’s kinda how I roll. Randomly.
Hi it’s Sierra here from The Blue Robin Cottage! I am so excited to share a fun, girly craft with you today! Fall fabric hair bows are the perfect way to top off any outfit.
But first, tell me if you can identify with this scenario:
You’re getting your little lady ready for school: she’s all dressed, teeth are brushed and you’ve just finished doing a Pinterest perfect hairstyle (I’m still trying to work on this part), and now all you need is a hair bow to match.
I’ve put together some fun ways that you can recreate some back to school magic at home to remind you of your favorite Disneyland vacations. Whether you call it a using a spoon full of sugar, or a adding a little bit of pixie dust, you can make everyday moments more fun with a little bit of imagination! Why not live life with a cherry on top all of the time?
First grade is such an important year in school. My son did start learning to read in kindergarten, but struggled. This year I am really focused on keeping him on track with his reading. The school encourages 20 minutes of reading every night. 20 minutes is a lot for a first grader, but I do think it’s important to encourage him to read each night and I thought he would be more excited about it if we kept track on this printable reading log.
Hey Or so she says… readers! It’s Mariah with some fun school supplies I know your kiddos would love to have this coming year. I can’t believe the 2015 school year already upon us! Make sure your kids are prepared and stylin’ with these top rated back to school supplies.
I think there’s something totally awesome about children’s books; great illustrations, funny voices, silly characters. I think the best part about them, though, is that they can hold memories. I have a few books that I read to my son that my mom used to read to me, and every time we read them it’s like I get taken back in time! I remember the voices my mom used to use at certain parts of the books, all the feelings I used to feel as she turned the pages, and what pages were my favorites that I loved to linger on.
