Contest: Win an 8-week session of Creative Parenting Classes!

From their site:

Creative Parenting Classes  are weekly interactive classes that you and your toddler participate in together. Through crafts, exercise, finger-plays, songs, and storytime, your toddler will achieve social and academic skills needed in preparation for pre-school and kindergarten. During each eight-week session, your child will interact with his or her peers, you will spend quality time together, you will meet other parents, and you will learn new ideas.

The Creative Parenting program consists of hour-long sessions, held once a week for eight weeks. We hold classes from September through June.

Our program is structured into the three segments described here.

1. Simple craft building and play time enhance individual creativity.

Our themed activities use a variety of art mediums that are messy and fun! Your toddler will have the opportunity to make a simple craft with your encouragement. We strive for your child to have creative experiences, not to make a perfect replica of a sample.

Your child will also have some time for free play. As the children grow more comfortable with their surroundings, we will encourage joint play as children this age need peer stimulation. This is also a great time for parents to talk and exchange ideas.

2. Circle time enforces learning of simple activities.

These activities include songs, finger-plays, and simple exercises that require repetition to be learned. We sing many seasonal songs and old favorites. We play with bells and bubbles and the favorite of many, the parachute! Children have a great time and they don’t realize they are learning .

3. Story time encourages an early interest in reading.

Each child will have a snack while listening to a story. We emphasize a love of reading. Your child will develop listening skills as well as vocabulary if he or she is read to daily. An early interest in reading will encourage your child’s development in many areas.

Parent also have an opportunity to talk about being a parent. It’s nice to know you’re not alone.

Locations:

Movie Night Suggestions!

My family LOVES to have a family movie night every week during the school year. In the summer we enjoy having them almost every night!  My older son is getting to the age of being interested in “teen” movies so we try to mix it up with both animated for my younger son & more mature movies for our older son.  Since we are doing movie night so frequently I was starting to run out of ideas.  I solicited my readers on Facebook and this is the list that they helped me compile.  I thought I would share it with you in case you, too, were looking for some great ideas!
Be cautioned, not all of these movies are PG, please check them on www.imdb.com for their ratings.  Each of us feel differently about what we show our children and YOU have the final say on what you show your own kids.  Not all of these will be suitable for every child.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Things Mom Would Never Say

  • “How on earth can you see the TV sitting so far back?”Image
  • “Yeah, I used to skip school a lot, too”
  • “Just leave all the lights on … it makes the house look more cheery”
  • “Let me smell that shirt — Yeah, it’s good for another week”
  • “Go ahead and keep that stray dog, honey. I’ll be glad to feed and walk him every day”
  • “Well, if Rahul’s mamma says it’s OK, that’s good enough for me.”
  • “The curfew is just a general time to shoot for. It’s not like I’m running a prison around here.”
  • “I don’t have a tissue with me … just use your sleeve”
  • “Don’t bother wearing a jacket – the wind-chill is bound to improve”
