Night Time Theme Craft Idea: Make toast for a special cooking activity with young children and allow them to help with the process. Using a butter knife to spread the condiments on toast is a great fine motor activity and provides children with a sense of accomplishment while teaching self help skills.

TIP OF THE MONTH:

There are many topics that can fall under a night time theme:

These stars make a nice display.

Pajama/Teddy bear day

Hibernation

Night time workers

Nocturnal Animals

Space

Stars:  YOU TIME!  The best way to be a great caregiver is to take care of yourself! Have you ever taken a nap in the middle of the day? Turned the daytime mind off and drifted off to dreamland? Give it a try. You deserve it.
