Hi friends! This week's post is "All About Me." We believe that each person is unique, and that our differences should be acknowleged and celebrated! Here are some age-appropriate activities that are great introductory approaches to identity, inclusion, and community.

1. We love this multicultural family portrait wall from HappyToddlerPlaytime.com. Just attach some contact paper, sticky side out, on your wall. Set out materials like paper, yarn, paint, family pictures, and pipe cleaners for a beautiful invitation to play.

2. Use a magnifying glass, your phone camera, or a microscope to take a really close look at your child's skin, hair, or eyes. How are your eyes the same? How are they different?

3. Here's a different approach to a self-portrait from ArtfulParent.com. Use assorted colors of construction paper to create a Picasso-inspired abstract portrait.

4. As your child is starting to understand themself and their family, incorporate some books that provide a window into others' lives. We love "My Nose, Your Nose" by Melanie Walsh, and there's a #linkinbio to a longer booklist.

Happy Monday, everyone! Our theme for the month is "Family and Community." Even at this young age, children are construc...

Happy Monday, everyone! Our theme for the month is "Family and Community." Even at this young age, children are constructing their personalities and observing the world around them. What is a community and why is it important? What makes me unique? Who is in my family? Follow along as we explore identity, family, and community this month!

Children’s Museum at La Habra- Invitation to Play

An invitation to play is an opportunity to learn! For this week’s “Wonder” theme, we’re showing some examples of the early childhood concept known as invitation to play.

This means arranging materials (we love to include books) in an appealing and open-ended invitation to play. The care in your setup communicates the care and intention you have towards your child ❤️.

Hi friends! For today's post, we'd like to talk about ENVIRONMENTAL PRINT. It's the words and letters that surround us in everyday life- in a building, at home, in stores, and even in nature! Your child can also practice making letters, both with a traditional marker or with blocks and play dough.

Try pointing out the words and letters that you and your child come across. Making the connection between letters and ideas is a big step in learning how to read! And, of course, read books to your child every day.

Please share a picture of your child reading their favorite book; we'll feature them tomorrow!

Hi everyone! Looking for something fun, family-friendly, and safe to do this holiday season? Our friends at The Electric Company have just the thing!

Elfeneezer Scrooge is an interactive drive-thru holiday theatrical experience geared to children and their families. From the safety of your car, travel to five separate magical tents as you follow Elfeneezer's journey to capture the joy of the holiday season and the importance of community.

At the end of the story, each car will have the opportunity to take a photo in a holiday-themed set. Elfeneezer and his elves tell us there might even be snow! ❄️☃️☺️

The show will take place in the parking lot of La Habra City Hall from December 18-20. Tickets are $25 per vehicle and are available at https://www.electriccompanytheatre.org/

Hope to see you there!

Ready for a guessing game? Show your kiddos and put their answers in the comment for that picture!

Thanks for playing! We love that even a simple guessing game is a chance to experience wonder, curiosity, and exploration with your child.
