This may seem like an obvious Frugal Friday hint, but take full advantage of your library and all it has to offer. With my daughter, I have learned the potential of a library. It’s not just books, folks!
We have been visiting the library about once a week lately, and we are both loving it. She plays with blocks and puppets and theme boxes like the nutritional food one in the picture above. She uses musical instruments and puzzles. We read books and watch movies like Elmo’s Potty time. We play with a felt board and stringing games. We sing songs from CDs.
AND WE CAN CHECK THEM ALL OUT! :)
Our library recently got an early childhood education grant, which expanded the children’s area to include manipulatives, more puppets, and learning activities for check out. It is such a great, well-rounded learning experience at the library now (and at home since I don’t have to purchase all of these things). There are teaching books there too, and informational books for parents included in this grant. It’s good stuff!
The beginning of next month, we will also be attending a story time too! Since we have been busy visiting (and attempted an older kids’ reading time), the child librarian offered the little one’s reading time again. Yay!
