Toddlers and preschoolers have an attention span of around 10 - 12 minutes, and once its exhausted, learning and listening are no longer fun for them. So when it comes to story time mix it up a bit. Use one or two of these ideas for each book you read and make story time as fun and as interactive as possible.
Encourage the kids to grow their own vegetables. These simple Egg Cress Heads are a great place to start as theyre easy to make and take nearly no time at all to grow. They also make a great alternative to chocolate Easter eggs.
