    • June 28, 2020 Summer Songs for Children
      Summer Songs for Children The days have lengthened and the children's feet are constantly dirty with grass, mud and sand.  Summer is here and so is our playlist. 
    • February 13, 2020 Homemade Playdough
      Homemade Playdough While any time of year is a great time for sensory play, I find we use sensory play all the more over the winter months when we are indoors more than the other months.  One of our very favorite forms of sensory play is play dough.  I’ve been making this play-dough for many years and it always turns out well (just like store bought, my kids actually like it better) and lasts for many, many months in an air-tight container. 
    • September 05, 2019 Healthier Kid-Friendly Pumpkin Bread
      Healthier Kid-Friendly Pumpkin Bread My oldest started Kindergarten this year, much to my joy and sadness.  The school requires we pack a snack and lunch for the kids each day and it's been my goal to make sure he tummy is full of healthy food to keep his energy up and his brain ready for all the new information he is ingesting.  One food my boy will never turn down is a slice of quick bread, so I have been making different breads over the weeks.  We love to keep the sugar as low as possible while still being something they will desire, hide some vegetables in it and pack in protein.  This bread has become one of his favorites, even reached for over his beloved banana bread.  
    • March 14, 2019 Spring Songs for Children
      Spring Songs for Children The air has a hint of warmth, rainy days are common, and our daffodils are shooting up which means Spring is on its way.  The official first day of Spring is next week, March 20th so we've been transitioning our home for the change of season:  Spring Flower Fairies on the nature table, Spring books in the basket, and new window decorations.  We are also celebrating the change of seasons with a new playlist for the children.  We have been listening to this playlist for the last week and the new Spring music has been such a treat.  This gentle playlist is filled with some of my little one's favorite musicians.
