New Book!  We are excited to announce that Mosswood Connections is a contributor to a brand new book called Learn with Play: 150+ Ideas for Year-round Fun & Learning.

We think that children learn best when they are having fun. That is why we try to incorporate play in our learning activities. This book is full of activities and projects that will have kids laughing while they learn.

Learn With Play: 150+ Ideas for Year-round Fun & Learning

This is a fantastic resource for parents, teachers and caregivers of young children. With 94 co-authors, it has a huge variety of fun hands-on activities. Most of the activities use common household items making it easy to do the activities with little pre-planning or shopping. 

Learn With Play: 150+ Ideas for Year-round Fun & Learning includes 150+ fun ideas divided up into General Play/ Arts & Crafts Activities, Early Childhood Education, Life Skills, Organization and Seasonal/Holidays. It has an easy to follow guide to find the perfect activity for all ages. All of the activities explain the materials needed and instructions on how to play. Some activities have free printables included too!

Learn with Play: 150+ Ideas for Year-round Fun & Learning is available in three formats:

  • The physical printed book is available on Amazon for US$29.95.
