Curriculum Clean-Out: Giveaway #1-- Treasured Time with Your Toddler


Photobucket

Twice a year Homeschool Creations hosts a Curriculum Clean-Out event and we have a couple resources that we aren't currently using. Here is our first Giveaway: 


Treasured Time with Your Toddler is a wonderful resource for those of you who want to plan intentional activities with your toddler or preschooler. Each month has a particular theme. Each week has a theme which relates to the monthly theme. Even though the book says its for toddlers, some of the activities are fairly advanced and I would say that the activities could be used with children 2-4 years old. 

Here's how it would work this week. September's Theme is "Colorful and Shapely Treasures". This week's theme would be "Colors- Part Two". There are literally hundreds of activities for you to do with your toddler or preschooler. For each week Jan Brennan offers:

  • books to read
  • nursery rhymes to say
  • songs to sing
  • games to play
  • crafts to make
  • foods to prepare
  • explorations to take together


How to Enter: Simply leave a comment telling me why/how you could use this book. Please include your email address so I can contact the winner. 

Extra Entries for:

  1. Subscribing to this blog via email or a feed reader. 
  2. Following on Google Friend Connect
  3. Following on Facebook
  4. Sharing this giveaway on Twitter
  5. Sharing this giveaway on Facebook
Leave me a comment for each extra entry letting me know that you did one of these things. Please include your email address. 

This giveaway will close on Saturday October 1 at 11:59PM CST. Winner will be chosen on Oct 2nd using random.org. This giveaway is open to US Residents Only (sorry!). I will post and email the winner. 

Good luck! 

Head on over to Homeschool Creations to find more great giveaways!

Thanks for the opportunity. I have started tot school with my 2 year old this year, but somedays the "play" only last a short while. More fun activities are always a help when planning the fun.

This sounds right up our alley! I have always "play-learned" with my daughter and am beginning more preschool oriented activities. This sounds like it would be perfect for us!! I would love to win this, but if I don't, I think I'll just have to go buy it somewhere! Thanks for bringing it to my attention! :)

I would love to win this book. My second child is a little boy, who is quite active and doesn't do well with "traditional" learning. I think this would be great to come up with other ideas!

This would be great for my two littlest ones. I think the parts they would enjoy the most are the nursery rhymes , songs to sing and crafts.

Both of the girls love to hear the songs and nursery rhymes over again throughout the day!
