I love puzzles - they're great tool to help teach tots about shapes, problem solving, fine motor, etc. but let's face it -- puzzles don't get the attention they deserve.

Today we tried out ice cube painting and it was AWESOME. They are a cool twist on traditional watercolors. Plus, this is a perfect activity for those HOT summer days.

G has been having a blast with her sensory boxes, but it was time to switch them up! I decided to make a beach box and a princess box for her.

Summer is near and that means HOT days and water play – our favorite!!! We pulled out G’s water table a little over a week ago and she was so excited. It’s definitely a favorite for her on hot days!

I just wanted to share a really fun idea with you all for a FANTASTIC Mom’s Night Out. I love a good MNO – and we all know that patio happy hour + sangria = a happy mom!

I am all about finding meaningful play and learning experiences for G. This week, I decided to introduce her to sensory bins!

So for my stay-at-home mom self, I'm always trying to come up with low prep, fun activities to keep G happy and stimulated. We love, love, love art projects
