My First Giveaway...........
This will be the first in a few give aways that I have planned, so keep in touch!
As I love crafts and seasonal activities with our children we have over the years gathered many books and ideas and I love browsing through them making plans and collecting ideas.
Sometimes I do feel the need sometime to have a more structured guide for our seasonal ideas with everything in one place.
I have over the years contemplated putting one together in my spare time, but that spare time seems to elude me :) and I feel that at the moment it will stay on the back burner. Perhaps one day in the future.
At the moment I am really looking forward to our move and the start of a new season for us.....Spring.
Would you believe that we start our first day of our new adventure on the first day of Spring.
One of the lesson plans I will be doing with our younger children especially is a topic I did with our older children for a couple of years. We had a Seasons Notebooks and we read stories, drew pictures made crafts in a very deliberate way (they still have those notebooks)
As we really enjoyed this study I am going to start this when we move and start with Spring.
I am going to use Annette's Seasons of Joy ..Spring Book as a guide.
I really really love this series from Seasons of Joy and Annette has graciously offered a complete Season set: that is the four complete seasons to a lucky winner!!
Here is a listing of titles in the Spring Issue:
Fairy Tales, Stories, and Extensions
Finger Plays, Songs, and Verses
Cooking and Baking
Especially for Babies
Rhythms and Routines
Honestly there are so many ideas in these and all in one place an you will not want to miss out on a chance to win this.
So what do you need to do?
First off for chance number one Become a follower of this blog and leave a comment saying you are or if you already are just leave a comment letting me know!

I will leave this giveaway open all week and draw the winner on .........Friday 7th September
As I have no idea how to do a computer generated win I will do it the old fashioned way.....drawing a name out of the hat.
Please also note that I am posting this as we leave Tasmania and will be off line for a few (depending on internet provider) days I will be taking the comments off comment moderation - until I am back on line. If when I am able to check at a stop over or something and find I am getting lots of spam I will probably put in the' fill in the word box' that we all hate to do.
Until I check in again good luck and see you in the 'new world'
