I know the one picture of John is super blurry but you can still see the look of joy and delight on his little face; he just got it in the basket! You may or may not have noticed that my weekly Tot School post has been missing. We’ve all been under the weather a […]

What is Shirley’s Prepackaged Crafts? In the fall issue of TOS, I discovered Shirley’s Prepackaged Crafts. I immediately visited the website, read the testimonials […]

Tot School: Little Life Lessons

Washing Dishes Daily life is full of lessons and fun when you have tots. We washed the dishes (just the plastic ones), played with bubbles and enjoyed ourselves. They love water but even more than that, they love to help mommy. It doesn’t matter what the job, they feel it’s important. May they always keep […]

Tot School: C is for Cupcake

Posted by Jennifer under Homeschooling, Teaching Tots (6 Responds)

Tot School: Beading

Posted by Jennifer under Homeschooling, Teaching Tots (5 Responds)

Beading Gifts Anything craft-like and the littles are all over it. We made bead bracelets for GiGi a while back using different kinds of beads (picked up at a yard sale last summer) and pipe cleaners. They carefully slide the beads on and once they have enough, Mommy helps them twist it and tuck the […]

Tot School: Decorating for Christmas

Drawing Improvements This week was spent drawing a lot. We now have markers, pencil crayons along with our regular and fat crayons. They’ve been using each of them to make creations and we’ve been looking at how each one helps us make a different looking drawing. I noticed Chloe has improved in her drawing in […]
