Welcome to the homepage of Aimee’s Amazing Kids!
Parenthood is one wild ride. And even if you aren’t a parent, if you have a little one in your life you too know the whirlwind those free spirits can make. With so many changes right now in how we work, live, and even educate our children it can seem almost overwhelming. Especially when those little ones in your life hit the age of why. “Why isn’t the sky orange?” “Why do crocodiles have tiny little legs?” “Why can’t I have another snack?”
Trying to occupy their rapid speed minds can seem like a never-ending spiral. You want to do crafts, teach them their letters, read with them, and just do whatever you can to help them grow and prosper. But you don’t have time. Time to prep. Time to order all those tiny pieces for those fancy sensory bins. Time to cut out all those tiny shapes and pieces of yarn.
Enter my themed preschool kits.
Imagine bonding, learning, AND playing with your little ones all at the same time. No planning, no arduous prepping, and no trying to figure out what to do with those extra 65 tiny dinosaurs that came in the order from Amazon. Just good clean fun….oh and learning too! 🙂
Take me for example.
As a NYS certified 7-12 Social Studies teacher, with two degrees, lesson planning and testing preparation was not new to me. After deciding to pursue a career in historical fashion, I thought I left the majority of that lesson planning behind me. Until I had a little one of my own! And now that that little one is a full blown preschooler, I too realized the never ending tank of learning she had. I found myself diving in to preschool themes, standards, and activities…and loving every minute of it!
Now I want to share all that I have found and created with you! I know what it is to be a busy mom trying to balance it all. I love the time I get to spend with my daughter one on one while we glue, paint, and laugh. I love that I get to see her strengths come out and know that I am the one setting that all important foundation of life long learning
So, now for the good stuff. What do you get?
In each kit, you will receive the following:
– A introduction packet with the theme overview, list of activities in suggested order, and instructions on how to complete each activity. Activities are designed for 3-5 year olds.
– 5, 6, or 12 activities, with materials provided, to be completed on your schedule. Each activity is designed to take 15-20 minutes.
-Several of the kits even come with a storybook focusing on the kit’s theme
-Ideas for added enrichment to keep the learning and fun going even when the activities are done.
*Basic craft supplies ARE NOT included in the kit You will need to have a few washable paints, crayons/markers, safety scissors, glue, and paintbrushes.
With activities that range from academic, artistic, kinesthetic, and everything in between, there is something for everyone.
Are you ready??? Lets learn and explore together!
This kit is not, and should not be treated, as a preschool curriculum. It is a series of crafts and activities that are meant to encourage learning and fine/gross motor skills.
