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 […]

NO COOK PLAY DOUGH

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 […]

DIY RAINBOW PASTA

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) […]

DIY PLAY GRILL!

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 […]

DIY FELT BOARD & FELT FARM ANIMALS!

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 […]

RAINBOW RICE WITHOUT VINEGAR!

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 […]

FREE “THANKFUL” PRINTABLE!

I love framing Gio’s seasonal art & displaying it in my kitchen! I wanted to share this printable I made so you can enjoy it with your littles, too :) Just right click the image to save it & you can print it out. I like to keep styrofoam trays from produce purchases & use it as a […]

DIY SENSORY TABLE

I’ve been wanting to get Gio a sensory table for soooo long! I  wanted a nice, sturdy wooden one like the one I had in my classroom as a preschool teacher… but those run upwards of $200 & I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that knowing I could probably DIY it for much less… […]
