Easel For Toddlers
By | parenting | No Comments

“Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn” -O. Fred Donaldson

The most important job of a child is to play. That’s why I love to fill their playroom with toys that will help them learn and development. An easel, table + chairs, and toy box are essential for any play room. Our set is from the Crayola Vocalpoint Pop-Up shop (see below for more details on how to shop it). The girls have been loving it! The  easel has

10 MUST-HAVE TOY TO PROMOTE DEVELOPMENT

By | parenting | One Comment

—SHOP THE POST—

There are so many toys on the market and it can be tempting to want to buy them for our children. They seem so in love with the toy in the store, but often when you get home, they quickly lose interest. So many toys are “one hit wonders” that can only be played with one way. Those types of toys only hold our children’s attention for a short amount of time. They grow out of those toys so quickly and before we know it, they’re in the donate pile.

6 WAYS PARENTS CAN USE TIME TO THEIR ADVANTAGE

Time Parenting Advice
By | Parenting Tips | No Comments

Time is one of a parents biggest enemies. Time steals our babies and their fresh newborn squishy-ness way to quickly. Time turns them into toddlers in the blink of an eye.

We got a set of beads for Hazel to string onto pipe cleaners (a great activity for developing fine motor skills), and she loved it! She’d made bracelets for everyone in the family and she was always asking “Can I bead Mommy?” So I wanted to come up with a new beading craft for her, and came up with this beaded wind chime craft (it’s a lot like the crib mobile I made for Iris’s room). Hazel enjoyed making this so much that when
