    What a fun way for kids to develop their fine motor skills! Each page of the board book has a cute little story and instructions on how to complete the picture using Wikki Stix (36 six-inch pieces are included). For example, children will finish wrapping a package with ribbon, add seaweed to the ocean floor, lace up a sneaker, and put a tail on the kite. There are 15 activities in all, and kids can press the Stix directly on the pages (Stix will attach with very little pressure, and any waxy residue can be wiped away with a paper towel). In case you're unfamiliar with Wikki Stix, they are reusable, extremely flexible pieces of wax covered yarn. For more information on Wikki Stix and other Wikki Stix products available, please see the Art section of the catalog. ~ Enh

    Or, in home school language: a literature-based unit study. This one uses some of my very favorite children's picture books (see list below). For each of the 18 books, there's a story summary and a "before the story", "during the story" and "after the story" suggestion. A helpful shaded box points out themes, skills, vocabulary, and related books. This is followed by "connections" to curriculum areas including: language arts, math, science, problem-solving and social skills, fine motor, gross motor, visual discrimination, art, and creative dramatics. Reproducible activity pages are provided for some of these. This is great for preschool, as you can center one or several days around these books, themes and activities – even an entire week if you integrate the related literature selections. As an example, for If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, emphasized themes are: being a good host, patience, real and fantasy. Skills focused on are making predictions, alphabet, counting, biology, and manners. Special vocabulary is carried away, comfortable, finished, mustache, remind. Related books include If You Take a Mouse to School and If You Give a Moose a Muffin. Before reading the book, you ask your child to predict what might happen if they gave a mouse a cookie and relate that to what they do when they get a cookie. During the story, you take advantage of the many "cliffhangers" in the book, allowing children to guess at the sentence endings before turning the page. After the story, the author suggests additional readings (this is because children have such fun with the outlandish turns of events – most stories have other activities in this section). There are two Language Arts Connections; one is playing with magnetic letters on a cookie sheet (related to the drawn red letters and cookies on the book cover); the other is to make alphabet cookies (sounds yummy!). For a math activity, there's a reproducible page for children to match the chocolate chip cookies with the same number of chips. Science Connections have you researching what mice really eat. If you have access to a mouse, the book suggests experimenting with various foods. If not, you'll have to settle for using another book, using the internet, or visiting a pet store. In Problem-Solving and Social Skills Connections, children practice being good hosts or hostesses. You can play the mouse and let your child entertain you (tea party, anyone)? Then, as the mouse does in the story, children practice fine motor skills by drawing pictures of a scene from the book or of their family as the mouse does. Children practice writing their names (using tracing paper), tape it to the artwork, and then to the refrigerator, just like mouse. For Gross Motor Connections, you again mimic the mouse, this time in sweeping and cleaning (remember, the mouse got carried away and swept the entire house!). The book suggests supplementing with a little house-sweeping music of your choice. In Art Connections, children construct Barbershop Portraits as you reread the book, paying special attention to the part where mouse trims his hair. Children paste long strands of yarn to self-portraits for hair (deliberately making the hair in need of a trim). After the glue dries, children use safety scissors to "cut" their hair to a desired length. In Creative Dramatics Connections children practice proper mealtime manners. After rereading the section of the book where mouse asks for a straw and a napkin with his cookie snack, you provide yourself and your child(ren) with paper plates, empty cups and straws, and napkins. Then you pretend to be a group of mice, eating cookies and drinking milk, demonstrating how to eat a cookie over your plate, use your napkin and drink properly with a straw. If children do well, follow through with real cookies and milk then show children how to clean up after the meal. A final reproducible page has children color the pictures that show how someone in the family takes care of them (also great as a discussion starter).

    A simple and charming story written and illustrated by Tomie dePaola. Charlie is a shepherd with a cozy house, a flock of sheep and a big hat. What does not have is a cloak to keep him warm. Charlie then shears his sheep, washes the wool, cards it, spins it into yarn, collects berries to dye it, weaves it into cloth then sews the cloth into a cloak. There is some good vocabulary in here that children may not know. The drawings are simple and cleverly done as Charlie’s sheep attempt to “help” him make his cloak. Good for your emerging readers. 7.5” x 8.5”, 32 pp, pb. ~ Sara

    Using one or four patch blocks, children learn to use a quilt plan, use a template to draw and cut the shapes, and with the skills learned in My First Sewing Book, stitch a pieced quilt with sashing strips and blocks. The quilt is finished by attaching the back with the pillow-making process. The three pieces of the quilt are fastened using yarn ties so that the quilt can be "in use" while quilting each square. Kit includes a poster board template, quilt plans to color, and ideas for more quilts. - Stephanie

     This simple technique reminds me of a combination of rug hooking and making PlushCraft® pillows – creating soft texture with yarn loops, but by using a special tool to push the yarn through the burlap backing. The tool is like an awl with a hollow handle. Thread the yarn through, punch it through the fabric to create a yarn loop. More yarn will thread through the handle so you can keep going until it’s time to switch colors. The tool is notched so you create evenly sized loops every time.
      Everything you need to make a 9x9” pillow is included: 5 colors of super soft chenille yarn (pink, yellow, purple, green, and white), burlap, stuffing, felt, embroidery floss, a needle, 8 design templates, and a reusable frame and punch tool. Although the kit only includes supplies for one pillow, you could easily purchase additional supplies and create an endless amount of pillows. Make the first one for yourself, then give the rest as gifts to friends and family! – Laura
