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!

K is for Kite

Mommy & Me Book Club
Gathering Activity


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.

Circle Time
The More We Get Together
Sing ABC song.
Count from 1-10 forward and backward.

Book Time

Kite Day-A Bear and Mole Story—Hillenbrand

We also looked at many other books about kites and talked about the different kinds of kites.
Art Activity
(Fine motor skills activity)
We made kites with the letter ‘K’ written on them.
The instructions for the kites came from:


High Flying Kite Treat

 (Gross motor skills activity)
We just ran around ‘flying’ our kites.

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.
