Spring is here, and for my family, that means starting our small garden. We have a very small yard so a small garden works best for us. Regardless of the yard size, small gardens can be great for anyone because they are a lot less work than giant vegetable gardens. A family garden can be a project for everyone in the family to help plan, plant, care for, harvest and enjoy.
Creating ABC Books With Your Children
Learning and playing are two things that can so easily happen together just by taking advantage of the learning tools for kids around you every day. An ABC scrapbook—whether elaborate or basic—incorporates many learning skills, including: reading, letters, writing, drawing, photography, science and social studies.
Teacher Appreciation Week Ideas
Did you know that May 6-10, 2013 is National Teacher Appreciation Week? All across the country, students and parents alike, will show their gratitude and appreciation through kind gestures, activities and thoughtful gifts. I feel it’s so important to give thanks to those that nurture and teach our children, not just this week, but every day of the year.
