S is for Space — Letter S Printables

S is for Space

We love doing hands-on activities for preschool, but sometimes we need to spend a little extra time with each alphabet letter. I’ve decided to make printable packets for each letter to work on skills like cutting, tracing, writing, patterns, and more. Each week I am sharing a new packet. They may seem a bit out of order since we follow a schedule in my eBook. After I’m done with all the letters, they will be compiled into an eBook for easy access for you all. Today I am sharing letter S … [Read more...]

75 Quiet Time Box Ideas for Preschoolers

75 Quiet Time Box Ideas for Preschoolers

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for supporting my site. A few months ago, I wrote a post on using quiet time boxes when a child stops taking naps. I like to call these quiet time boxes a sanity saver! It is so nice to have peace and quiet for at least an hour each afternoon. Since we've started using quiet time boxes with my 4-year-old, I have realized that after a while, he gets bored with the material in each box. So, I have switched material out and changed things … [Read more...]

eBundles of Joy — Fundraiser for St. Jude

I'm one of several personal friends and bloggers that are welcoming new little bundles of joy into our families this year.  We wanted to celebrate these precious gifts of new life by raising awareness and money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. One of the most amazing things about St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is that no family ever has to pay for the care they receive.  That means that families can receive medical care for their child that might not otherwise have been … [Read more...]
