Pre-literacy Activities

Pre-literacy Activities for Toddlers, Preschoolers, and even Babies

Introduction: These are called pre-literacy activities, because realistically, you aren't going to be teaching your baby or toddler to read.  However, helping them build their vocabulary and getting them exposed to and interested in letters and written materials will help them be prepared when it is time to learn how to read. Most of the ideas on this list are for toddlers and preschoolers, but some you can also do with your baby.

I'm always searching for new activities to try with my daughter.  Often, the "toddler" activities I find on the internet are actually meant for older toddlers and preschoolers.  This list has been tested and approved by my toddler daughter for younger toddlers. (Which isn't to say that older children couldn't enjoy them as well!)  Here are a few of her favorite activities that are very simple and make use of things you may already have in your house, so they are cheap or free.  No fancy toys required!

Moving Tips

Moving Tips.... from someone who has done it too many times!

I have moved quite a few times in my adult life.  Some were easier moves, such as across town, and some more challenging, such as moving across the country (and into a small apartment from a much larger house!)  Like most people, I still hate moving and packing, but I have learned quite a few tricks to make it go smoother.  I would like to share some of my tips for organizing a move. 

My tips fall into three categories: 
  • Declutter (you can do this anytime!)
  • Plan ahead: Figure out what you need to do, including researching and managing your movers (if you need to hire help)
  • Pack your boxes in order of priority (items you use often should go into the same boxes)
