Christmas season is my favorite time of the year and it’s even more fun with kids. But it also means it’s cold and rainy and not as much fun to be outside. To entertain Hazel and to get us in the Christmas spirit we’ve been doing a lot of fun Christmas themed indoor activities (we’ve even built a snowman inside!). I thought I’d share of what we’ve been doing in case you want to do them too. A lot of these are activities that we do year-round and I’ve just added a

The holiday season means traveling for a lot of people, and with toddlers, that can be very stressful. When we go on road trips with the girls, Hazel is always in the backseat asking “we amost der?” and then she’ll tell Iris “Is ok, Iris, we amost der.” It’s absolutely adorable for the first five minutes of our trip, but after a few hours it’s not as cute. Haha! Through our many road trips, I’ve learned that if you’re not prepared with activities, your toddler will cry…a lot. So I make

Christmas gets better and better each year. I honestly think Christmas is more fun as an adult/parent than it is as a kid. I love getting to carry on traditions that I did when I was a kid, and create new ones for my girls. Now that Hazel is two, I’m super excited to start the tradition of doing an activity advent calendar each Christmas with the girls

When the weather is nice, we like to spend as much time as possible outside. There’s just something about being outside in the sun that really wears a kid out and makes them nap extra good, which this mama is a fan of. Haha! Of course, we do the typical activities like going for a walk, going to the park, and swimming at the pool, but it’s also fun to get creative,

Sensory tubs are not only fun for kids, but they are also educational. As Bev Bos, a well-known early childhood educator and author, says ““If it hasn’t been in the hand, the body, and the heart, it can’t be in the brain!” Children learn through play, interaction, problem

These past couple weeks have been so cold and windy. It’s miserable to be outside. When the weather is nice, we like to get out of the house to go for walks around the neighborhood, go to the park, etc. because it wears Hazel out and helps her to nap extra good. But with this weather, we’ve been cooped up inside more, so I’ve been trying to
