Space Storytime: At-Home Activity

Our theme for this week's storytime was Space!  We explored the planets, stars, and even had count downs to launch rockets, but there is more you can do at home to encourage young scientists, astronauts, and explorers.

This snack is also a great way to practice some creativity and fine motor skills for your child as well as staying healthy and energized for the day:

Ingredients:

  • Crackers
    • Club
    • Triscuit
  • Cheese (pre-cut into triangles)
  • Various gummies for flames, buttons, windows, are anything else your toddler can think up!

Steps:
  1. Allow your child to assemble the rocket, offering minimal assistance (remember, its the process, not the outcome, that is important in these activities!).
  2. Blast off!  The snack will come in for a landing to your toddler's tummy one piece at a time.

We hope to see you again for our next storytime for songs, rhymes, movements, and books.

The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope

A great new book, I had the pleasure of reading.  It was not something I would normally read, but the description got my interest.  The story of Evelyn Roe finding what she believes to be a badly burned soldier returning from war evolves into a lifetime journey with this stranger.  Well worth you time to pick this up.
