On this blog, I will share my ideas for an at-home preschool that I do with my children, ideas for surviving motherhood, library story time ideas, ideas for my various LDS callings, Family Home Evening ideas, and whatever other random ideas that I have. I borrow ideas from the world of great minds and will try to give credit as much as possible. Thanks for dropping by!

Welcome Song (tune: London Bridges)
Come along and clap with me,
Clap with me, clap with me.
Come along and clap with me,
It’s time for us to start.

Goodnight, Gorilla by Peggy Rathman


Art Activity
(Fine motor skills activity)
Make animal puppets and then allow children to play with the animal puppets and you retell the story.


Bananas and Gorilla Grape Juice
 (Gross motor skills activity)
Play the color match key game.

The kids also enjoyed playing “zoo” by putting stuffed animals in a cardboard cage and taking them out again.
Good-bye Song (tune: Here We Are Together)
Now we wave good-bye,
Good-bye, good-bye.
Now we wave good-bye,
I’ll see you next time.
