Dear Friends,

How are you? We hope everyone is taking things day by day, and we are here to help! We've grown our YouTube channel to over 30 short video tutorials, starring our very own amazing teachers and some special guests, on activities you can do at home with materials you already have! We have had a ton of fun making them, and we hope you have just as much fun trying them out.

DIY Activities For All Early Learning Stages

3 & 4-year olds: Rain Cloud In A Jar

Spring storms are upon us. What better way to teach kids all about rain clouds than to have them create some and see how they work? Read how to make Rain Cloud in a Jar here.

2-year-olds: Muddy Animal Washing

Use mud from your own backyard (substitute shaving cream, or even mix up brownie batter to make it taste-safe!). Make a big mess and then use soap and water to clean the toy animals for a fun sensory experience. Learn more here

1-year-olds: Two-ingredient Slime

This slime recipe is great for toddlers since it's non-toxic, so they can mix the ingredients all on their own! You just need cornstarch and water. Glitter is optional for extra added fun! Click here for more details.

0-12 months: Treasure Chests

Don't toss those baby wipe containers -  reuse them! Give your baby a way to explore textures and put different fabric swabs inside the container. She can practice her fine motor skills by reaching and grabbing too! Get started here.  
A Honk & Wave Parade is a great way to bring your community of families and students together safely during this time, so they can reconnect, see the familiar faces of their teachers and friends, and have some fun! Read our tips on how to plan your own Honk & Wave Parade for your school or organization.
