Lego Storage Ideas for Kits

Lego Storage Ideas for Kits

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 ...

Spring Sensory Bin- Mess Free Garden Dirt Dig

Spring Sensory Bin- Mess Free Garden Dirt 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.

Playdough Valentine DIY

We have always celebrated Valentine's Day with homemade gifts. I like to keep it simple with something like a handmade heart card (that I usually stay up way too late crafting with doilies, stickers, the whole 9 yards 😅). Last year, I also made the kids a set of melted crayon hearts. This year, I'm giving them an "XOXO Dough" playdough valentine! You can find my favorite homemade ...

Stool | Cape | Dress | Pink Rug | Braided Rug | Lamp This little book corner has been something I've wanted to put up forever. The Ikea spice shelves have just been sitting in a closet for years simply waiting on me to make a final decision on where to put them, whoops.

Build a Snowman Sticky Window

Build a Snowman Sticky Window

During the winter months I frequently draw inspiration from our favorite cold weather activities and find a way to bring them inside for endless (and warmer) toddler and preschool activities. Your kiddo can build their own snowman over and over (and over!) again with this sticky window snowman activity! For this winter activity, you will need clear contact paper, painter's tape, paper plates, and construction paper. Cut ...

Sensory writing is a great way to introduce and practice handwriting skills with toddlers and preschoolers! This snow-inspired writing activity allows kids to use their fingers to copy the snowman flashcard's letter into the shaving cream. This lets little hands practice fine motor coordination and planning without the frustration of holding a writing tool. It is also forgiving and fun to erase which leads to less time spent ...
