Keep your eyes peeled for this one.

It's a really easy way to generate some extra dough for our little school and all ya gotta do is get friends and family to pledge to pay you for reading to your littles.

We already have to read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom three times before bed, so GET PAID FOR IT! By FAMILY. It's the easiest way to ask for money.

  • Tell your family about it.
  • You can even post on social media about it and take payments for it through facebook by setting up and sharing a venmo link. Check it out below!
  • Ask for a flat pledge for reading time
  • PCFF Gets Paid
  • Donor gets a write off

Set up a venmo account and let your friends and family support us through that easy app!

I'll see you at the top of that money tree.

Play Based Education Corner

We all know why we have our monkeys at PCF. But for some of us grown ups (like myself) play is really, really hard. I'm a doer. A task and mission master. SO sitting down to play is really like moving a mountain for me. It's a full body/brain effort. And it frequently makes me question my parenting prowess.

Most parents have probably heard of the site Hand In Hand Parenting.. but just incase you are busy and don't go looking for these nuggets of info, here's a link to "10 Tips for More Playful Parenting".

Warmly, Becca
