Hello Everyone and welcome to Storytime With Alyssa!!!
Today I am going to tell you about this project that I started on March 27, 2020 that has grown into an ABSOLUTE joy during these hard times.
On March 26, I was sent home from work due to COVID 19 social distancing measures being put into place. I told the family that I work for that I would send them a video each day to the little guy could have some entertainment…today was day 33 of storytime with Alyssa.
After sending the family the first video, I decided to post it to my @alykrysgetsfit instagram account. It has over 2k views as of today! I am astonished!! On March 30, I created a separate account just for storytime content. As I did not want to overload my wellness loving followers with childrens songs and stories. Here is the link to that account. I have been posting IGTV or short videos almost daily! I also host storytime on zoom a few times a week, and it is SO much fun.
This project has been a creative outlet for me, as well as a way for me to help give parents a bit of a break during these difficult times. If I get enough interest, I will host zoom storytime even when I can go back to work (but on weekends) as it is bringing joy to kids all over the world, and it fills my heart.
If you have kids, or have friends with kids, send them my way!
