To this end, I am working with First Protestant to offer a Preschool Appy Hour Class ...
Name Bugs - Easy and fun for all ages
This craft/art project comes from my mom, Patty. She taught grade school until she retired a few years ago. One of her kids' favorite art projects was "Name Bugs." She made one with me when I was little and has made one with my daughter. I love the simplicity of the craft and how beautiful they all turn out.
Here's what you need:
§ Construction paper--various colors

Take a sheet of construction paper and fold it in half lengthwise. Have your child write ...

What child doesn’t like to dress up? Child psychologists note that imagination and creativity begin during the toddler years and blossom during the preschool years. Dressing up supports this growing brain development by supporting the learning of language: when children play, they narrate their actions. Dressing up also fosters imaginary play by creating a bridge between mainstream culture and the imagination.
Boys and girls alike will love Little Capers wear and Moms and Dads will love the 100% cotton shirts with detachable capes! No more dishtowels tucked inside the ...

Support the teachers in our community!
With all the budget cuts and strain on our education system recently, we (Parker Homes & Renovations) thought we would try to do a little something to help out some of our local teachers. We will be putting together a special "Back-To-School Package" for some deserving teachers in our area. Hopefully the package will help alleviate some of the "extra" costs for the teacher's school year and help him/her know that we as a community are here supporting what they do for our children.
