Kinder Brain Power
For children, planning a birthday party is as much fun as the party itself. Engaging your child’s brain power in party planning activities will not only lead to a fabulous birthday party, but will also celebrate growing cognitive abilities.

Try This at Home!
A dramatic reading is a simple way to get your child involved in the performing arts. All you need to do is find a book or story that your child likes, and prepare a small area for the show. Your child can either read from the book during the show, or memorize the words and recite the story while adding his or her own special touches. It's fun if your child gives each character in the story his or her own voice and mannerisms.
