Raking up the Leaves

Mara Anderson, from Peace Lutheran, shared with me a great idea she's working on for a learning center in her preschool room. You'll need old gloves, a rake, artificial fall leaves, brown butcher paper, and fall borders or our fadeless fall leaves butcher paper.

Thanks for the tip, Mara!

Putumayo Kids: European Playground

Check out our newest Putumayo Kids CD: European Playground. I listened to it while I drove out to Tuba City this morning. Loved it! (But then of course I love everything from Putumayo).
