A whole year with our little homegrown pandemic baby – whew! We made it! If nothing else, this year is definitely one to celebrate.

I think every parent (justifiably) has a love / hate relationship with Legos. Especially the idea of trying to figure out Lego storage ideas. On one hand, the building kits entertain my kids for HOURS and I love them from a STEM perspective. But then there is the anxiety of kits getting mixed up, pieces lost, and -collective groan- stepped on. So when Harper and Ethan got another handful …

Spring Sensory Bin- Garden Dig

If there’s one place I know I can find my kids in the spring, it’s elbows deep in the dirt in our backyard garden. I’m talking full on showers every time they come inside.

This is a combination of books pulled from other bookshelves/storage in our home and from our …

Easter Basket Ideas: Toddler and Baby

Spring feels like the perfect time to give baby’s things a little update c/o the Easter Bunny! I started Josie’s basket with this adorable rope bunny bin that I plan to use for toy storage after Easter. Like the basket, I wanted to pick out some toys that had a spring “vibe” but that didn’t scream Easter so that she can continue to use them as she grows into …

Easter Basket Ideas for Kids!

Did Easter sneak up on anyone else this year? It’s less than two weeks away so I spent some time this weekend putting together some Easter basket ideas! I try to be intentional but fun when putting together their baskets. (So yes, they’re definitely getting toothbrushes, but to be fair have you seen a cuter toothbrush than these?!) I have a rainbow and unicorn crazed 6-going-on-16-year-old girl, a dino …

I am all about incorporating holiday themes to make learning more fun! Manipulatives are a hands-on way to learn common preschool and kindergarten concepts. They are also one of the easiest things to swap out for a holiday theme. I made this sweet little Valentine Math Mat to use with conversation heart manipulatives! If you don’t have candies, don’t worry: you can do the same activities with cut paper …
