I started Planning Playtime as a way to keep track of all of the great ideas of educational activity ideas that came to me while elbow deep in the dish sink or folding yet another mountain of laundry. I wanted to remember them long enough to actually complete them with my children, and I figured that publicly writing them down would hold me accountable to try them all out.

As a girl, raised by a retired teacher mother, I learned that education can be the greatest adventure. It can happen anywhere, anytime, and it can be so exceptionally fun! I wanted to pass that excitement, that passion on to my children so that they too can become lifelong learners and love it.

This blogging journey has taken us to many unexpected places. We heard from and talked with many of you from around the world, and we thank you for being here with us.

My children are part of everything I do here. They help with and inspire the activities, critique my work, and share amazing new ideas more often than I can post them. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Have a look around. Share your comments, ideas and stories with us on the blog or via social media. We look forward to hearing from you.

  1. Hi there! I was wondering if I bought the January Preschool math and literacy pack and then if I decided to just get the whole year could I possibly get the January pack rolled into my year purchase price? Thanks so much for your time! Very excited to try these worksheets with my kiddos!

    • Hi Jessica,
      I’m so glad you love the worksheets. TeachersPayTeachers doesn’t give me the option to adjust the pricing like that for you unfortunately. You could try asking their customer service, or if you would like to buy the year, and then send me an email, I would be happy to send you a $3 product for free. Just tell me which one you’d like. 🙂


      • Thank you so much for your quick response! That sounds wonderful! I am going to start with the January pack and then if I decide to get the year I will contact you. Thank you so much!

  2. I just wanted to thank you for posting about the skip-counting method for memorizing multiplication facts. As the mother of a third grader who struggles with math, I think singing the skip-counting to the tune of familiar songs will be a huge help for him. Once he memorizes these facts, homework and tests will go much quicker for him, because he won’t have to spend as much time on calculations. Thank you so much for making these available!
