For this week’s theme, we are looking at bedtime and featuring Time for Bed by Mem Fox. In the Northern Hemisphere, the nights are drawing in and whereas our preschoolers went to bed in daylight they now have darkness and we are using that for inspiration for our activities. So here we go our Bedtime Week for Preschoolers.
