Celebrate Get Ready for Kindergarten Month with This Giveaway from Quilting Treasures and Dinosaur Train!

Posted Aug 03 2012 2:23pm
It’s Get Ready for Kindergarten Month! Many things can be done to help prepare your child 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; 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!

Quilting Treasures is offering these great new fabrics to one lucky winner!

1 yard of the Dinosaur Train themed book panel:


Plus, 1 yard of either of the below Dinosaur Train themed fabrics

AND, ½ yard of one of the below Dinosaur Train themed coordinates

That’s 2.5 yards of Dinosaur Train fabric! (The 1.5 yards of coordinating fabrics will be randomly selected.) Quilting Treasures has some great ideas for what to do with your fabric…
