On Wednesday I kiss my big nearly 5 year old boy goodbye and send him back to school. It’s only 2.5 hours a day, and he’s looking forward to it so it’s a very different feeling I have about it than I had last year.
Meanwhile, his little sister is still at home. She’ll be three in February and the idea of sending her to preschool this year did cross our minds. But then she would be in preschool for two years before even starting regular school. We thought it was a bit much (and selfishly, we wanted to keep her at home a while longer!).
But as I did with her brother, we will be doing some fun preschool activities at home. Learning numbers and the alphabet, crafts, seasons, and reading.
Doing these short burst of ‘circle time’ activities was something her brother really enjoyed – and helped me fill the day. I know she will enjoy it just as much.
I’ll be blogging some of the fun stuff we come up with, but in the meantime, I’ve added a new page (see top header bar) to keep the activities in one place for easy reference. Not sure what to do today? Maybe you can find something you want to make!
