This month we are all about whimsy, fun stuff, kid-friendly squares.
Designs can be simple - the way a child would draw them.
Do you remember when you were 4, or 5 or 6? What fascinated you?
Even if that was a long time ago for some of us, certain things never change. No matter what the decade, children everywhere seem to be attracted to similar things.
- the brighter the better. Think of a box of crayons and salute the
Year of the Plain Jane
with a stack of bright yellows, reds, blues and greens.
READING AND COUNTING
Number squares with counting dots, picture squares with simple words or alphabet letters
Kids love to learn about nature and our children in S.A. probably would love to see some African animal squares, or dogs, cats etc.
THINGS THAT GO
Always fun - cars, trucks, airplanes, rockets, bikes
Squares that show the colours of the S.A. flag - black, white. yellow, green, blue, red. Even very young children recognize their flag.
(Reminder - flag-coloured squares will arrive in S.A. in time to be included in blankets distributed on Mandela Day, July 18)
If including Mandela Day squares in a parcel with other squares, please write "Think Like a Kid" on the outside of the parcel so the volunteers will watch for them and set them aside.
- balls, dolls, teddy bears
HAVE FUN WITH THIS THEME - TURN BACK THE CLOCK AND THINK LIKE KID!!!!
The "featured product of the month" in the KasShop for February is Learning Posters. They are a KASbargain at 2 for $5US!
As Pam mentioned in KasSnippets , these posters enhance the children’s environment and provide important stimulation to developing minds.
If you would like to send some posters as part of your participation in this month’s theme please visit the KasShop HERE and let us know in the discussion. It would be great if we could provide enough posters for Ronda to leave a few to brighten the creches she visits.
