When Shaun entered the 2 year old class in daycare back in 2005 the teachers were impressed with his animal recognition and sounds.

Using recycled materials is one of the best ways to complete a craft.  No one wants to trek out to buy new supplies just for one craft so this is something that most people can do just by raiding your supply closet. This floral wreath is done using an egg carton, paint, beads (or buttons) […]
