The New Year is almost here! And with it – opportunities! Opportunities to spend time with our Tots, filling their minds with wonderful things and helping them explore the world! I pray you will take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way this coming year to grow closer with your Tot! Take a look at the different blogs linked up to Tot School to help you in your efforts!

Mama Brittany over at Pitter Patten shares how using toys from around the house can aide in teaching our Tots their shapes and colors. Check out how Tot Ryker uses his toys to learn about shapes and colors.

Christmas is almost here!!! I don’t know who is more excited – me or the kids! But the most exciting thing about this time of year is spending precious time with our tots teaching them about the true meaning of Christmas! There are still a couple of days before the big day! Check out some of these blogs for a few ideas to implement this week.

Mama Alicia over at Motherhood in the Trenches shares an adorable nativity accordion book that relates the story of Christmas with our curious tots! Estimated time to complete the project is only 20 minutes! A project that is short and sweet during these busy days!

Motherhood in the Trenches

 

School Time Snippets Mama Kristina had a great time with Lil’ Sis exploring different Christmas themed Tot Trays. Be sure to check out all the fun activities and maybe put some into action to keep your Tot engaged while finishing up those last minute Christmas details.

School Time Snippets

 

And just in case the stress of all the extra planning and executing of those plans during this busy season has got you in a dither, take a look at Mama Andrea’s blog, Unschool the Teacher. She gently reminds us that even when we are “off schedule” our Tots are learning and we should RELAX!

Sometimes we Mamas are our own toughest critics! We look back on a week that got away from us and focus on what didn’t get accomplished instead of what did! This week as you prepare for the celebration of our Savior and plan meals, school, housework, etc. take some time at night to focus on what DID get accomplished and thank God for it all!

The above thought was inspired by Mama Kaysha over at Memorizing the Moments. I love how she so eloquently wrote of her disappointment over lost time and how God brought to mind a valuable lesson learned during that “lost time” – making it not lost, but priceless!

Memorizing the Moments

 

I love Mama Charlton’s perspective over at My Spare Time. Despite the fact that it took about five months to complete the first Tot School lesson, she remained positive and loved the time spent with her daughter Meredith. I also totally LOVED the use of marker caps for color matching! Check out the other activities that Tot and Mom enjoyed over the months.

My Spare Time

 

Mama Alicia, from Teacher Turned Mama, shares how even our best intentions can go awry and make us feel as if we’ve earned the worst Mama award! Read her post to see how she doesn’t dwell on the negative and finds the positive throughout the rest of the week!Teacher Turned Mama
