Wow! What a week this has been! I think I'm ready to hibernate for the winter, but... well, yeah, there are orders to fill, swaps to organize, giveaways to conclude.....
Speaking of giveaways, our grand opening giveaway ends tonight at 11:59 (eastern time). Each of the five prizes are valued between $20 and $40 and should provide creative occupation for your kidlet(s). Winners will be announced Saturday.
Our introductory sale also ends tonight. Order by 11:59 (eastern time) and receive $5 off every item in the store.
If you signed up for the preschool swap, you should receive an email Saturday with further instructions.
For those who have placed orders... due to the large number of orders, there may be a slight delay in delivery. However, you will receive your orders before Christmas.
...And speaking of Christmas, Saturday marks the launch of a new busy bag set available for purchase. It is a small Christmas themed set designed to give your kidlets holiday occupation.
I don't know about your kidlets, but mine get hyper and antsy as Christmas approaches. If I don't find ways of keeping them busy, they soon have the entire house covered in ornaments torn from the tree. I'm hoping this busy bag set will help occupy them this year.
Perhaps the best feature of this Christmas themed set is its packaging. Each set will come wrapped as a gift. So not only will your kidlets be occupied by what's inside, but they will have the fun of opening the package as a gift.
Here's a peak at some of the activities included inside.
Felt Snowman Building
Pom Pom Tree Decorating Game
Lacing Bells and Beads
Color Matching and Buttoning Tree
Pinterest is definitely my go-to place for inspiration. The number of ideas are astounding. Here are a few of my favorite ideas for toddler activities.
Fabric squares in a wipes tub will give your little one something to make a mess of without wasting all those good wipes.
Pipe cleaners pushed through holes poked into a container's lid
Poking pom poms through holes cut into a container's lid
Poking pipe cleaners into a kitchen strainer
Notice a common theme here? It's all about poking it in and pulling or dumping it out. Ha ha. That's a toddler for you... or at least mine.
Thanks to all of you for a wonderful first day! When I wasn't sleeping or spending time with my kidlets, I was excitedly watching the traffic action here.
Thanks again for making the all nighter completely worth it.
Hey Everyone! This is Bridgette!
I’m here to tell you about the Alphabet Learning Set that is available here at Kidlet Occupation. An activity set like this one has never been offered until now. If your preschooler has started to show an interest in learning about the Alphabet, this set is for you.
Each Alphabet Learning Set will include a printed worksheet displaying an upper case and lower case letter. These worksheets also have a corresponding item that your Kidlet will either stick or glue into the outline. For example A: apple stickers, B: bug foamies, C: cotton balls. The Alphabet Learning Set includes a worksheet and the item for all 26 letters.
When your Kidlet is finished creating their work of art they can practice tracing the upper case and lower case letters on a laminated sheet. This sheet can be erased and used over and over to practice writing the entire alphabet. The Alphabet Learning Set includes all 26 letters to trace.
In order to practice letter recognition your Kidlet will be able to assemble a letter puzzle as well as form the letters using pipe cleaners. You will find 26 puzzles, one for each letter in your Alphabet Learning Set as well as pipe cleaners so your Kidlet can practice creating letters.
But that’s not all you will receive in the Alphabet Learning Set. After your Kidlet has mastered each letter, they can practice letter recognition with two review activities that are also included in that Alphabet Learning Set. One activity will be felt ice cream matching and the other will be clothes pin matching. Your Kidlet will match an ice cream scoop to the corresponding ice cream cone. For the clothes pin matching your child will clip a clothes pin onto the corresponding letter on a worksheet.
