Flowers Sensory Play

I love our sensory table— it was actually a DIY project that I did years ago, & we love it! You can see how I made our DIY sensory table here. I’m always looking for new things to put in our sensory table— we do things like rice, beans, sand, water & oatmeal pretty frequently. […]

Under the Sea Birthday Party

Hiiii! Here I am almost 3 months post-birthday, FINALLY sharing details from our Under the Sea party, haha. Better late than never? We were  so  unsure  what we wanted the theme of Gio & Gabi’s joint birthday party to be this year. (And by we, I mean me. Haha.) We considered a few different themes, but I fell […]

FREE Valentine’s Day Printable

Happy Almost Valentine’s Day! We’ve had a crazy start to our year so I haven’t blogged at ALL but I’m hoping that will change soon– things are fiiiiinally starting to settle down. Sort of. Haha. (Does life ever really slow down?) With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I wanted to create a free printable […]


Giovanni loves sensory play. I built him a sensory table last year that we use almost every single day! Out of nowhere he asked if we could play with some “pay dough.” He loves cooking/baking with me so I knew he would love making the play dough, too. I used my tried & true “No Cook […]


With the last name, “Love,” Valentine’s Day is kind of a favorite holiday in our house by default :) I’ve put together a collection of crafts & kid activities, along with a few Valentine gift ideas I found on Pinterest. You can click the title of the photo to see the original post & tutorial. […]


This was such an easy DIY & Giovanni LOVED it! It was so fun to watch him explore the pasta in our sensory bin & it was actually a lot less messy than I thought it would be. I’ll jump right into how we made it :) What I used: Pasta noodles ( 2 boxes) […]


All of my DIY posts begin the same. “I was on Pinterest…” haha, & I came across a play grill that I knew Giovanni would LOVE! It was repurposed from an old table & I immediately began looking for a DIY tutorial online. I looked & looked & found NOTHING where people built theirs from scratch. I had […]


How cute is this felt farm?! Giovanni LOVES animals, so I figured he would love this activity. Turns out he just loves making each animal sound as he pulls it off the board & throws it onto the floor… haha. He does love the tractor but he’s not quite in that “imaginative stage” yet where he’s […]


I’ve been wanting to make this with Gio for a few weeks now & I kept putting it off because we’ve been doing other projects. This morning I saw the bag of rice & said, “Ok, we’re doing it!” Look how cool it looks!!! \ I made our DIY rainbow rice with no vinegar. Not quite sure why people even use vinegar in […]
