I made these cute little DIY busy bags for the girls before our spring & summer travel kicked off. I plan on rotating what’s inside them but always keeping them in our diaper bag or my purse when we are on-the-go. I’ve found the key with busy bags is to keep the items inside FRESH! […]

I’ve seen a lot of these adorable chalkboards available for sale but figured I could easily whip up my own. It took 10 minutes + drying time to make these and Piper has loved using it to practice her letters! Supplies: Wooden Chalkboard (mine is from Walmart but they are available for $5 or less […]

Earlier this week on my Instagram stories I shared a peek at the busy boxes I put together for Flora to play with this week! The idea is that filling them up on Sunday before the week began would buy me a little bit of time to get more done on my lengthy to-do list. […]

Now that Flora’s attention span is getting a little bit longer for sensory activities I’ve been having fun coming up with a few different things to do with her every week. She had fun with this ball drop – and so did Piper! I think it’s one that she’ll come to enjoy more as she […]

I thought it was about time to update our post of children’s books that have African American characters. I’ve tried to be mindful of our book collection since I started registering when I was pregnant by including books that have characters of all races and backgrounds. I was listening to a podcast interview with children’s […]

Flora officially is starting to look more like a toddler than a baby and it kind of breaks my heart!! This age is so fun yet also SO exhausting. Since Flora started walking (!!!) she’s into any and everything and we constantly have to have an eye on her. We are also in major need […]

I was inspired by this necklace tutorial I had saved forever ago from Art Bar to make some Valentine’s Day necklaces with Piper. The beads we used are fairly small and are definietly a choking hazard for younger children, so please use your best judgement!  We had SO MUCH FUN making these together. I love […]

Sensory bins are great for both babies and toddlers (Piper has been engaged with EVERY sensory activity I’ve created so far for Flora). This sensory rice activity is so easy and Flora (13 months) really LOVED it. I was nervous about the clean up – but putting down a towel, playing on tile or wood […]

This week I made Flora a sticky ‘wall’ to play with – I used to do this for Piper and she really loved it! As with most sensory activities at this age (13 months) the attention span isn’t that long, so Flora will only play for a few minutes at a time but she’s really […]

Piper (age 3.5) had so much fun playing this alphabet soup game! I wasn’t expecting her to enjoy it as much or get through all the letters but we did 2x when I introduced it! It couldn’t be easier and helps your toddlers with letter recognition and fine motor skills!  We picked up foam letters […]
