Halloween Tinker Crate Review

Here at the Educators' Spin On It, we LOVE to tinker around. As a former classroom teacher, now write-at-home mom, I am always looking for ways to enrich my child's afterschool learning.  I know that our kids are not getting enough hands-on math, science, and engineering during the school day. As a parent, it's my job to find ways to support my kids learning after school.   This week, we were fortunate to receive one of the first Halloween Tinker Crates to share with you!!! My kids were over-the-moon excited to make and play with this project - THANK YOU TINKER CRATES!!! ~ Affiliate links in this article.

Can you tell I'm excited?

Llama Llama Red Pajama Playdough Sensory Play

One of our family's favorite picture books is Llama Llama Red Pajama. It's such a typical behavior of our children as they begin to fall asleep on their own.  The characters in the book help children realize that these feelings at bedtime are common and that it's ok to have them and to share about them with their parents. I'm sharing with you a few fun ways to engage with the story with your child for your own little book club at home or with friends.
