CCK provides preschool activities to enhance developmental in motor, pre-academic, communication, and social domains. The activities are simple and use inexpensive materials that you can find in your home, the dollar stores, Walmart, and craft supply stores.

I also want to encourage adults (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors…) to connect with and have a positive impact on the children in their life.  Investing 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.

This blog is a fun little adventure that I write in my spare time. This results in a very sporadic posting schedule. In real life, I am the coordinator and parent educator for a rural Parents as Teachers program. Parents as Teachers is a wonderful program that provides developmental information, resources, screenings, and encouragement to parents of young children. I love my job! I have a master’s degree in early childhood special education from the University of Missouri; and have worked in the field of early intervention, special education, and early childhood education for nearly 20 years.

My two girls are grown and it all happened so fast! Bethany has a degree in graphic design and is married to Adam, my wonderful son-in-law. Lydia is a college student studying graphic design. My husband and cheerleader is Doug. They are a joy and my life.

Please feel free to post your ideas and suggestions. I love to hear from you.

  • 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!
