Toddler Summertime Play

Sand and Sun

Since it’s summer and the beach is the ultimate sensory experience (the crash of the waves, the salty smelling air, the sand between your toes, the warm sun and cool water on your skin!) we decided to bring the beach home for our learning this week! Turn on some Caribbean steal drum music (Alexa willContinue reading “Sand and Sun”

Snow and Ice

The weather is hot, but this week we’re choosing to “let it go” and dive into some Frozen inspired sensory play and art!

For the first time in forever, we hadContinue reading “Snow and Ice”

Aloha Summer!

Popcorn and PJs

Lights, camera, ACTION! Get ready for some fun movie and popcorn themed activities with your little this week!

If you have aContinue reading “Popcorn and PJs”
