Raising Lil’ Rock Stars – Through the Bible A-Z

Raising Rock Stars AtoZ

The Raising ‘Lil Rockstars – Through the Bible A-Z curriculum from 1+1+1=1 is a part of this bundle deal. On it’s own, it is $12, but only until Monday 5/2/16 you can get it as a part of the bundle deal – and a WHOLE lot more for you to enjoy too! She has done an amazing job with this program and it would be a great addition to your preschool time!

Gardening Fine Motor Skills

This after gardening activity from Uno Zwei Tutu is so incredibly simple, but it is a wonderful reminder that EVERY activity can be a learning one with our kids. After trimming trees on their property, the cuttings were a wonderful tool to talk about the parts of a tree and then carefully peel the bark off the pieces to examine inside. 

Homemade Sandpaper Letters
