CLOSED: Giveaway to say Thank You!

I really enjoy doing this blog. It started out as more of a personal file cabinet … just a place to keep all of my ideas and others that I planned to do someday. Last spring, my sister suggested adding a followers button and a few more pictures of the projects we’d done. So I did … and that got me hooked again.
With four kids, 1st grade and under, it really is what makes our days so much fun (and keeps us from going nuts other days) Smile
So to celebrate more than 100 of you following this blog, on to my first giveaway!
I decided to giveaway one new copy of one of my favorite preschool resources (you can see some others scrolling at the top there) …
It is a 30 minute DVD that teaches the letter names and sounds. I couldn’t believe how quickly my kids learned all of the sounds from watching the letters say their own sounds. It’s a fun video. You can see all the details here!
If you’d like to win:
  • Just leave a comment below!
  • (I’d love for you to follow, but it’s not required)
  • And maybe tell me one of your favorite preschool activities you’ve done with your kids. I love getting new ideas Smile Any comment counts though.
    • Please leave your email address in your comment if it’s not in your profile (just so I can contact you if you win!)
I’ll randomly choose one winner Monday night and post the results Tuesday morning. The DVD will come to you brand new straight from Amazon (ahh, shopping from home without kids … my favorite way to shop!) Smile
Good Luck & Thank You!!

  4. Way to go on triple digits! Thank you for doing this blog. You AMAZE me at all you accomplish and how great of a mother you are. The thing I like to do with the kids is vanilla pudding and food coloring for finger paints. Sometimes I'll make a flat pastry for the paper. Not really educational but sure is tasty.

    I'm following you now too!
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
    My favorite preschool activity that I've done was doing an Ocean Theme week - tons of craft ideas there and we hung them all up on the ceiling and added sea weed, treasure chest, etc. so it felt like we were under the ocean.

  6. A favorite preschool activity? That's a tough one! I always enjoyed when our little preschool would take a fall field trip to the pumpkin patch and learn about pumpkins. We'd measure around the pumpkins, take out the seeds, count them, make pumpkin pudding, etc. Preschool was really fun today at your house! The apple necklaces and apple bean bags were too cute!

  7. I just recently started following your blog and I love it!! I have a 3 year old little boy and we've done several of your activities already! Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas with us. :)))

  8. I came across your blog tonight while looking for Alphabet Rhymes. My toddler LOVES to learn new songs. But I am really looking forward to making an alphabet book with him using brown lunch sacks and a coloring page of an item that starts with that letter.


  9. I just recently came across your blog as I was getting preschool planned for my daughter this year. I love your ideas!! Thank you so much for sharing. Thanks to you, my daughter will have a fun preschool year and I am enjoying doing it with her. We also did a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom day to introduce the alphabet and made a tree. I got the idea from

  11. Wow, you are super busy too, I also have four with my oldest in Kindergarten. I love it that awesome women take the time to share their successes and failures with the rest of us. My kids like to blow bubbles with food coloring against paper to create their own art. Thanks for the chance to win.

  12. I love your blog and have done numerous activities from it with my 4-year old daughter. She LOVED the Cheerio birdfeeders. I love the idea of a new letter each week. My daughter looks forward to each letter and all the new projects. Thanks so much for an awesome blog.

  13. A friend referred me to your blog when I was asking how to make a volcano with my 3 year old. I am SO GLAD she did. It's been a fantastic resource of great activities to do with my son. So far our favorite thing we've done has been the apple activities, but we are having a blast doing the dinosaur eggs too. LOVE this blog. Such a great resource for moms.

  14. My three year old loves the leap frog DVDs. She loves to check them out from the library.
