    The dawn of the nineteenth century was wrought with hope in our rapidly changing world of communication, transportation and technology, but dark days loom as human rights and liberties are being trampled across the ocean. With the strong belief that "history is drama" Genevieve Foster invites you to join her in the exciting tale of history in the early 1800s. Part one introduces us to Richard Trevithick and Robert Fulton as they develop steam for a mode of transportation. The second part exposes us to leaders of nations, exploration and music: Napoleon Bonaparte, Thomas Jefferson, Touissant L' Overture, Lewis and Clark, and Beethoven. In part three we return to the progress made by Trevithick and Fulton, meet James Madison and learn of the downfall of Napoleon Bonaparte. Black and white illustrations and engaging text, this book is classic Genevieve Foster. Reprinted by Beautiful Feet Books. SC. 96 pgs. ~ Deanne

    Making potholders is a great introduction to weaving, and a fun, relaxing and creative activity too. And the results are very useable, which we love! Both of these kits are designed to last many potholders, with sturdy metal looms and metal weaving hooks. The metal loom pegs slant outward to prevent loops from slipping off, which is especially helpful for young kids! The loops included with each kit are 100% cotton, and custom-sized to fit the loom, which is often not the case in less expensive kits. The instructions included offer instructions on starting and finishing potholders, along with design ideas and suggestions for additional projects using the basic potholder. This kit includes enough cotton loops to make two potholders.

    This fun kit will teach you to make colorful, stretchy bracelets with a continuous length of thin cord using a tool and motion similar to spool knitting.

Kit includes a 48-page book with directions for 10 projects, a loop loom, a crochet hook, 7 colors of elastic cord, 350 beads for some extra style, and a cardboard sorting tray to help keep everything organized. I hope you enjoy this kit as much as I did! - Laura

      Snuggle up with your doll in matching slipper socks! This kit uses super simple knitting looms to create adorable slippers in way less time than traditional knitting. The purple, blue, and white variegated is pretty to work with, and there are included soles and ribbon embellishments that are easy to sew on to your finished slippers for added durability and style. The looms are reusable with any yarn of a similar thickness, so you’ll be able to make more pairs as gifts for friends and family. – Laura

       This is a guide to developmentally appropriate activities in many learning areas – home life/social emotional, math/manipulatives, art/music, science/sensory, language/literacy, outdoor/gross motor, and field trip suggestions. Very little prep is needed to do the activities, just gather the supplies and books listed for a complete introduction with young children or accompaniment to your math and phonics/reading for kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade. Each month (September through May) incorporates a theme and a character trait into the activities, and is 3-hole punched so you can place the pages in a binder for easy access and storage. Printables are included and step-by-step instructions will make it easy for any parent to work through the activities. You should plan on 2 to 4 activities per day, but plan for what fits into your schedule – “flexibility” is the name of this game. 296 pgs, pb.

     

      Within the packet of pages, you will receive a monthly overview printed on card stock that can be hung up so mom can see what they will be covering during the month – a good visual and planning tool. Sections on the monthly overview list the activities to be done in each area of learning. An Introduction to the program explains the philosophy and a list of what will be covered by theme and character trait. The rest of the pages have beautiful photographs, and step-by-step instructions for implementation.

      Let me give you a sampling of one month of the program. The theme for September is “The World I Live In,” and the character trait is “wonder.” Mom’s Toolbox is the first part of every month and this is where some special resources or items will be listed. In September the “Private Eye” loupe and the book Global Art by Mary Ann Kohl are mentioned. Anything found in the “Mom’s Toolbox” section would be good to get your hands on for incorporation later in the lesson. Home Life and Social/Emotional is the first activity section for September and includes the activities of using balloons and a laundry basket to ‘take a hot air balloon ride,’ make a hot air balloon snack, practice your manners by saying please/thank you, clearing dishes after a meal, and planning an emergency exit plan for your home. You can tell already that not all activities will work for all ages, but that’s the beauty – you can adapt as you need to, pick-and-choose as you see fit. The book list for September includes Hot Air, A House is a House for Me, Can You Hear It, Frog and Toad, and He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands. Language and Literacy for September includes tactile letter practice, children developing their own story, and making a book. Math and Manipulatives include activities such as counting and swinging, making a spindle box (counting box), making shapes, a nature math book, and playing a water bottle marble game. Science and Sensory will have your little ones exploring outdoors with simple tools like magnifiers, binoculars, nature guides, etc., making a nature journal and a pendulum, cooking up a batch of herbal tea play dough and creating nature scenes, making an artistic pond, and make a nesting set using cans. Art and Music includes using chicken wire to use as a weaving loom with fabric scraps, making a painting on a long piece of butcher paper, sculpting clay tree faces, using coffee filters to create artistic reproductions, making salt and mirror art, and learning the song, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.” Gross Motor and Outside has activities to develop ball skills and play games like Squish the bug, Hit the Hula Hoop, Wonder-Ball and running an obstacle course. Field Trip suggestions are touring the local news station or grocery store. At the end of each month is a supply list so you can see everything at a glance for easier preparation; most items will be things from around your home. A page for monthly memories and two planning pages are included at the end of the month, as well.

      Throughout each month, on every page, are photographs of the activities and children performing the tasks mentioned on the pages. Each month follows a similar format, so it’s pretty easy to get into a routine that fits your lifestyle. The Printables are on card stock and include photos, game instructions and game pieces, and other items that are mentioned during the monthly activities.

      Intended to give some guidance but not dictate the schedule, Year of Playing Skillfully can become a partner for you and your family as you begin the educational journey with your young learners. ~ Donna

      Learn the basics of weaving and make a neat bag in the process! The simple wooden loom is a square frame, somewhat like a potholder loom. Loop yarn through the notches to make warp threads, position the warp divider for faster weaving, load the shuttle with the polyester blend fabric yarn, and you’re ready to weave! After you’ve woven four pieces, you can follow the directions to learn how to stitch them together with the included plastic needle, and tada! You have your own handmade bag! Make more bags for friends out of yarn from a craft store, or see what else you can weave – potholders, a scarf, washcloths, and more. Loom is 10”x12.5”. Colors may vary slightly from those pictured. – Laura
