Hip Hip Hooray Parade

My kids love a good parade, don’t yours? At our house we like to create our own parade out in our yard. We don’t have any spectators, but the kids love it just the same. The best part of creating your own parade is the preparation. It is a must at our house to include…

Rainbow Shapes Scavenger Hunt

We aren’t actually searching for a rainbow with a pot of gold at the end of it, but we are searching for a rainbow of shapes with a prize at the end. This is a great Saturday morning (St. Patrick’s Day) activity and is best for younger children because it helps teach colors and shapes….

Printable Weekly Meal Planner

Theresa was a working mom  with almost 3 hours of commute each day. It was a lot of time to dream about spending more time with her kids and husband.  Now a stay at home mommy of a 3 and 1 year old, you could say she is living the dream.  When you say it,…

We had a great time watching our piece of cardboard transform into a beautiful Fall wreath that can be…

Homemade Toddler Sensory Box

I’m a stay-at-home mom, and I have a very busy almost two year old boy.  Very busy.  NEVER STOPS MOVING (or repeating “Mama”).  I’m always looking for fun, cheap ways to keep him entertained.  He also gets weekly speech and occupational therapy for some sensory issues, so anything that can work into his sensory “diet”…
