Music and Pizza! Fun Activities!

The theme for the event is music and movement, and there will be music, a story about the importance of movement to foster brain development, food, a book giveaway, and more! Daycare providers, paraprofessionals, and families are all invited to celebrate together. Here is a link to some resources and activities created by NAYEC to celebrate young children this week through movement, music, and art. Please use these ideas as jumping-off points to create your own meaningful experiences! We would love to see and hear about what you do! Learn more about the Week of the Young Child by visiting www.naeyc.org/woyc
