Our Approach

As we have both taught early childhood classes, we are aware of the incredible amount of time it takes to prepare any extra activities to go along with your classroom materials.  We decided that we could save you some time by creating ready-made activities to supplement your classroom units.  We have many different theme books, and a lot of patterns for art activities.  We hope what we have spent our time doing will be helpful to you!  Again, let us do the work so you don’t have to!

Our Story

We are a mother-daughter team. Our names are Brenda Wilson and Lorane Willyerd.  We have both been teachers in the public schools,  Brenda in Idaho, and Lorane in Utah, Virginia, and Washington state.  Brenda is retired after 20 years of teaching, and Lorane is now a stay at home mom to three girls.

Meet the Team

There are only two of us on our team right now.  We’ve both been teachers, so we know what would help save your valuable time.
