Kiddie Projects

I have worked for the Greater Peoria Family YMCA
in the School-Age Department since 2008.
Generally speaking, this means that I have worked a minimum
of five hours a day, five days a week with children aging from 3-13 years of age.
Anyone who works with kids will tell you,
if you're going to survive the day,
YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PLAN!

Lately, Pinterest has been my SAVIOR 
when it comes to planning activities for the little lovelies!
There is no shortage of great ideas
and helpful tips to be found there!
I highly recommend Pinterest 
if you are looking for things to do with your kids.
Honestly, that is where I find 95% of the crafts I do with the kiddos.
Very few actually originate in my own little head :).

Here are some of my favorite projects we have done:
