Summer officially begins tomorrow! At 6:34 p.m. EST to be exact! Not only will the summer solstice be occurring, but it will coincide with a full moon! This is an event that hasn’t happened in nearly 70 years! So, if you have a Tot that loves space make sure you head out to see the moon rising as the sun hits the most northern point of the equator! I’m not sure that it will look any different from any other moonrise, but at least we can say we witnessed an astrological event that may not happen for many more years! Don’t forget to post any activities that you do with your Tot throughout the summer! We’d love to see what you are up to here at the Gathering Place!

Are you looking for an activity that will help your Tot reinforce her numbers and letters this summer? Head on over to Teacher Mom Plus 3 to see this easily implemented activity that Mama Ayan put together! It’s just the thing for entertaining your Tot for a few quiet minutes!06192016 Teacher Mom Plus 3

With summer upon us all the children in your household may at one point say those dreaded words, ”I’m bored!” This activity may be the answer to that statement! Check out Strength in Words to see what Mama Ayelet put together with her Tot.
