Valentine Math

Valentine Math

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 ...

Playdough Valentine DIY

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 ...

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 ...

Snow Sensory Writing

Snow Sensory Writing

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 ...

Fall Family Bucket List

Fall Family Bucket List

Happy fall! I've been over here starting our cool mornings in an oversized sweater with a pumpkin spiced drink in hand and it's been just about perfect (if you don't count the whole virtual Kindergarten and teething infant situation). I can't believe it's already fall and I'm wondering how this train-wreck of a year has simultaneously taken forever and gone by in the blink of an eye. ...
