August 2014 Calendar Observances and Activities

This post contains calendar observances and themed activities for August 2014. If you’d like an updated calendar for any year, you can find it in my August Themed Activities for Kids. This calendar is different because the calendar observances with changing dates are added into the list of August dates, making it less likely that you’ll miss an event. I love using unit studies and themed activities for holidays and calendar observances. You’ll find all my unit studies and holiday posts in my “Should You Use Unit Studies?” post. You might choose to plan unit studies based on your child’s interests. Many unit studies, such as a dinosaur unit or transportation unit, work well at any time of the year. Some unit studies naturally fit best into specific seasons or months. And many others can be used at any time but are extra fun when combined with a holiday or […]

Montessori Monday – Activities for Babies and Toddlers Using Yarn Balls

Spielgaben educational toys are recommended for ages 3-12. If you consider the Spielgaben yarn balls, then the Spielgaben toys are appropriate for birth through age 12. (Only the yarn balls are safe for babies and toddlers, though.) Spielgaben yarn balls have been my 8-month-old granddaughter’s favorite toys for some time now. Today, I’m sharing some Montessori-inspired ideas for babies and toddlers using the yarn balls. This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Spielgaben. All opinions are honest and my own. This post also contains affiliate links (at no cost to you). Note: Spielgaben toys are exceptionally high-quality educational toys designed for ages 3-12. They come with over 1,000 pages of supplementary learning materials that help you as a parent or teacher easily use Spielgaben toys educationally with your child and/or students. All of the instructional materials are digital PDFs that can be printed out or viewed […]
