A Plug

Spencer is almost three (sigh) and while I am not going to do preschool with him until he is four (unless some of my peeps want to do some joyschool) I know that he needs some more interaction during the day, and most likely interaction that I don’t have the will to provide.
Here steps in www.achildswork.com .
I used them 2 summers ago, when Conner was done with joyschool and just starting into the whole preschool thing in the fall. I think it really helped with his eye-hand coordination as well as just his fine motor skills.
Anyway, they’ll send you a craft kit every month (with your kid’s name on it — you can imagine the squeals that will erupt from Spencer when he gets his own mail), and in that they get 4 crafts. So, I did one a week with him to supplement the workbook work that we already do.
Right now they’re running a special so that it’s only 6 bucks/month (shipped to you) for the 4 craft kits. You do have to pay for the year in full, but that’s a year of fun!
Lastly, they have AMAZING customer service. I have had MANY questions about if I could get some holiday themed kits and some other variety as well. She’s been great and willing to work with me for SURE. I am also hoping to get a couple of kits for Conner during the summer since he loved them so much last time. They do send-out age specific kits, so it’ll be great for them to each have something at their own level to work-on.
Anyway, just something to get you through these cold winter months. Email me if you have questions, or email them at [email protected] . I am pretty sure no one will have any more questions then I already had. :) Just learned she has another site where she’ll make an ADORABLE brag book for you parents out there. I think they’d make a great church item (I have little ones for my boys and they LOVE to stare at themselves during church). That site’s address is

    Wow, very cool concept. This is exactly what I have been looking for my daughter. I will be sure to buy a few subscriptions soon for Valentines day. Thanks Hilary for the great find.
