Celebrate “Get Ready for Kindergarten” Month with Quilting Treasures and Dinosaur Train!

Celebrate “Get Ready for Kindergarten” Month with Quilting Treasures and Dinosaur Train!

Get Ready for Kindergarten Month is celebrated during August to support a happy entry into kindergarten – a life-changing event for parents and children alike!

There are many things that can be done to help prepare children for kindergarten, including working with your child on basic academic skills, such as writing his/her name and reading letters; teaching critical thinking skills by encouraging them to ask “Why” questions; working on arts-and-crafts projects to get your child more comfortable using scissors, markers and other supplies he/she will be working with in kindergarten; and making shopping for school supplies a fun experience by letting your child make some choices of their own, such as the color of his/her backpack or pencil case.

To help you celebrate and prepare, Quilting Treasures has partnered with The Jim Henson Company and Dinosaur Train to offer you some fabulous fabrics featuring everyone’s favorite character Buddy. The fabrics can be used to practice some of these skills with your children, and create a fun Dinosaur Train themed item that your child can take to their new kindergarten – with the company of Buddy!

Quilting Treasures is currently offering some amazing Dinosaur Train fabrics including:
