The number one thing I like about my toddler is her constant amazement in the world around her. Every time we head to the library she has a different subject of books that she’d like to get. One day it might be Disney princesses, the next elephants, and the next sharks. And, while the next time it might be dinosaurs or Pokemon, the interest never completely fades. It’s like a snowball of excitement about the world. I wish that I had just a portion of that.
Rainy days can become intolerable. And, spring in the south has as many rainy days as sunny.
We like to make this easy (and healthy) treat to remind ourselves that it won’t rain forever. (Probably).
Alli has recently been intrigued with all things space related. But, prior to this interest, she’s spent about a year being interested in the moon. So, what better way to kick off some space activities, than one involving our old friend Luna?
If you’re on the internet at all you’ve seen slime. It’s a quick easy sensory activity. And, kids love it! Plus, it’s a great way to teach kids about chemical reactions and the properties of a polymer. So, Alli and I whipped up a batch.
Taking your children outside can be a daunting task. A multitude of things can go wrong even in the comfort of civilization. But, with the right preparation and knowledge it can be a fun experience for both you and your children.
We’ve done our best to instill our love of reading in our child. Not only is it great for learning communication skills, comprehension, new concepts, and a multitude of other benefits, but it is also a great bonding activity. Alli likes most books, but sometimes she goes weeks, and even months, requesting the same book every night. These are her current favorites.
