Welcome to Bonnie’s Blog. I am the founder and director of Emerge-A Child’s Place, a private practice committed to making a difference in the lives of children and their families. If you are not familiar with us, take a look at our website for further information. I wanted a way to connect with families on a regular basis, and thanks to the internet and blogging I have found a way to do so. I will touch on a variety of topics so check back often, you may find something of interest. I will try to post at least weekly. If you have questions related to a post or want to suggest a topic, please leave it in the comments section.

To start you off here is a terrific website with fun craft ideas for younger children. This creative mom provides wonderful pictures demonstrating her children actually making the various projects and in general she focuses more on process than product. There are also some more complex activities that provide a foundation for pretend play activities (check out the food week). New updates every two weeks: http://www.kidscraftweekly.com/
