Titanic activity for preschoolers

The Titanic exhibit is currently in town. I thought it would be something fun for older Toad and I to do together. I got What Sank the World's Biggest Ship as an introduction to the subject so we could learn a bit together before we went. Younger Toad enjoyed it a lot too, and learned enough that walking through the library he found this DK book in the aisle, recognized it was the Titanic, and insisted we check it out. Once we got home, even before we read the book, we had a long talk about…

Lake Como is in the Lombardy region of Italy (north). Tourists visit for the slow pace of life. There are many narrow walkways through the villages. The lake is shaped like an upside down letter Y and ferry boats are one of the main modes of transportation between lakeside villages.

On this journey, it is not only my boys who are growing, learning and reading along the way -- Mama is too! Slowing down to create a post card of gratitude with Wild Thing, enjoy a meal as a family, take note for myself personally what I am grateful for that day, or…
