Thank you for visiting!

I’m Kristi and I am so happy you are here! At Creative Connections for Kids we love for kids to play, learn, and connect. We want grown-ups to connect with the kids in their life, and for kids to make learning connections! CCK is full of  simple ideas that are fun for kids and simple for grown-ups too. You are your child’s first and most important teacher. ;) 

You can connect with CCK on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Google+.

At work….

I am a coordinator and parent educator for Parents as Teachers (PAT) in a rural Missouri program, and a PAT consultant for the state of Missouri. PAT is an amazing home-based parent education program. We support and encourage parents to be their child’s first and best teacher. My  degree is a M.Ed. Early Childhood Special Education from the University of Missouri – Columbia (MIZZOU!) and have 20 years in early childhood and early childhood special education

At home…

This blog was started when my daughters left home and our nest was empty. Here’s a bit about our family:

  • Married 30 years…whew. Doug is my number one cheerleader and BFF
  • Two adult daughters….they grew up so fast! They are my teachers, designers, support team, and friends
  • Two wonderful son-in-laws ~ I love how they love our girls!
  • One grandbaby on the way ~ our sweet Ruby xo….She is here and adorable!!
  • One faith in Jesus Christ. Faith and family are so important to all of us.  It is the bedrock of our lives. I hope to write more about this in upcoming months.

Welcome to CCK from pic monkey.jpg.jpgInvesting in a child is priceless. Some of my favorite childhood memories are simple moments spent with adults who took the time to read a story, play a game, or bake cookies with me. Please feel free to post your ideas and suggestions. I love to hear from you. Contact me by email at kristi(at)creativeconnectionsforkids.com

 

Thank you for reading!

    Kristi,
    I love the ideas and activities that you have. I often use them in my Pre-K classroom. Thanks

  • Hi Kristi! Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope to continue to make my blog a wealth of information like yours, if not just a documentation of what I do with my kids as they grow up! I’m following you on Pinterest now too! I used to attend my state Art Educators conventions when I lived in MO, but now that I am away from all of my art buddies, I have found blogging and Pinterest to be my way of connecting with other creative people. So glad to be making these new connections as I venture in to the SAHM world with a 3 year old! Once a teacher, always a teacher!

    • Hi Gabi, Thanks for visiting. Your baby bottle dauber received a lot of ‘likes’ on my FB page today! I loved looking through your ideas. My girls are grown and this blog has been a lot of fun as I’ve adjusted to the empty nest. :) Thanks for visiting. :)
