I am former Early Childhood Educator and now stay at home mom. I wanted to start this blog to help share ideas to other young moms as well as to help motivate me to do fun activities with my own children. Interactive Literature activities are my favorite preschool activities because it helps children learn to love books. What this means is to choose a book and plan an activity that relates to the book, to extend their learning. Normally I will post a specific book and an activity to go with it. During holiday times there will be lots of book ideas and activities to choose from. Most often the activities will be art projects, but not always. Remember that with any early childhood activity, the emphasis should be about the process of doing the activity and not about the outcomes. As hard as it might be, try to resist fixing and doing things for them and let them create on their own. The photos are just visual examples and not meant to be "cookie cutter" copies.
