Activities to promote development and Deborah in the News

I had the opportunity to be on Fox 59 Morning News!

I was pretty nervous and we had to move so fast that I couldn’t remember what I wanted to say! LOL!  I wasn’t able to actually get a copy of the video so I taped it from my daughter’s television so I could share this with everyone:)

I have blogged about some of the activities I show in the newsclip – you can see the vinegar and baking soda experiment here and you can view the picture frame activity here and you can view how to make colorful rice for sensory play here !

I was told to bring lots of props and I had fun choosing ideas that would be fun and colorful! I have been invited back to present once a month as long as we can come up with some ideas the producers like. So I have to get thinking!!

I finally got my 2 and 1/2 minutes of fame!!!
