Dear Sprout,

November 14th, 2009 - By Stephanie Precourt

I try to limit the kids’ TV-viewing as much as possible, but have to admit I often watch along and get crafty ideas watching Sprout with Gray. (Plus I LOVE Kipper the Dog’s accent.)

Gray’s pretty crazy about the Sunny Side Up Show and Chica. His favorite thing is to play Dress Up Chica at Sprout Online.

He even had his big brother write Chica a letter:

(I found that note in their craft pile and it prompted this whole post, actually!)

Starting Monday November 23, Sprout will be running an on-screen crawl of what Sproutlet viewers say they’re thankful for. Be sure to upload your message at Sprout’s Thanks For Giving site now!

AND on Thanksgiving Day, Sproutlets can speak live (ON AIR!) with the Sunny Side Up Show host and share why they are thankful. I just happen to have some connections over at Sprout and they gave me the special call-in number a little early: 877-91CHICA !!

(The number will not be active until 8:45am ET on Thanksgiving morning.) Gray will for sure be calling in! Will you?

In the meantime, there are lots of fun Holiday crafts and coloring pages to get the little ones involved with your Thanksgiving decorations. And what a good reminder as they create to think about all that we are thankful for.

Also, enter the “What Have You Learned” contest now through November 22. Submit your child’s artwork showing what he or she has learned - could be counting, ABC’s, sharing, etc.

Artwork will be shown on air and one winner per day will be chosen the week of Dec. 7th. Prize includes a Sprout Gift Package which includes a Leap Frog Tag Junior. Good luck!

PS I was not paid by Sprout to write any of this. I am just a Mom to a little boy that REALLY likes his Sprout. And I happen to like Sprout, too. :)
