Our Preschool Homeschool April Bucket List

Our Preschool Homeschool April Bucket List

Ever pin so many things on Pinterest you don't even know where to begin?   Story of my life.  I've even tried making a new board entitled "TO DO SOON!!!" to spur me towards accomplishing something.  However, the best method I've found is the good old fashioned list on the friend.  We made a "February Fun" list by pulling twenty or so activities from my Preschool and Winter Fun boards and I was really pleased at the number of activities we were actually able to do that month.  March has been … [Read more...]

God in Action VBS (Review)

God in Action VBS (Review)

With a glimpse of warmer weather today, I'm finally starting to think of summer and of course, for many churches, that means Vacation Bible School!  Our church doesn't run a traditional VBS (read about that decision here), but I do love using VBS curriculum to shake things up a bit in the summer and bring some fresh energy to the program.   I know the Vacation Bible School model is still hugely effective for many churches, so I wanted to be sure to share this incredible program with … [Read more...]

Story Time in the Park: Dinosaurs

Story Time in the Park: Dinosaurs
