Kids’ Book Club: Creek Exploring with Minn of the Mississippi

This month’s kids’ book club book: Minn of the Mississippi This is a 5th grade reading level book.  It’s a wonderful mix of fact and fiction, but I’d say my newly turned 5 year old had a hard time focusing.  We skipped a lot.  I’d recommend this book for the 7 and up age range…

Kids’ Book Club: Berry Picking with Milly Molly Mandy

This month’s kids’ book club book: Milly Molly Mandy The book is a 5th grade reading level and would interest kids 3-8ish.  I’m a huge fan of this book.  I kept expecting the plot to include Milly Molly Mandy making bad choices and dealing with consequences, and then the moral.  But, what actually continually happened…

Kids’ Book Club — Destination: Wonderland!

  This month’s kids’ book club book: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland This book is about a 7th grade reading level.  I’d say it is appropriate for some 4 and 5 year old’s, but generally speaking probably 6 and up.  My four year old understood most things, but, of course, the jokes and puns were beyond…

Tot School: Fall Party

At the end of our Fall Theme, we had a fall party! We invited a few friends and had a great time. This one cost a little more than the Bear Hunt Party, mainly because I bought pumpkins, apples, squashes, cider and some sensory bin items.  But, using a lot of supplies I already had,…
