Educational Activities to Help Improve Toddler Math Skill

What an incredible coincidence! My little toddler just flips over  and he noticed that mommy just happens to have a whole box of them in different flavors (superfoods to the rescue!) to use in our mini Math lesson today! Do you ever plan ahead and prepare to enrich the life of your toddler with fun and engaging lessons about Math? If you do, great! Give yourself a pat on the back right now, momma! Those extra steps to prepare our little ones for their life ahead filled with twists and turns and lots and lots of math, are vital stepping stones to their future success! I’ve got three kids that are all excellent at math and I know it’s partly because of early, purposeful lessons to kickstart their love for math, and to give them a strong understanding of many of its principles. Another great trick is to understand with…

5 Activity Alternatives to Cut Back on Cumulative Screen Time

Thank you Amazon for sponsoring this post. Give the gift of reading this holiday season with Prime Book Box! Screen time-free entertainment for young children is hard. The Cable TV shows, Youtube and Netflix are just three of the main sources for our screen-time entertainment with three boys under 6 years old. Things haven’t gotten much easier as we’ve transitioned into the older-toddler years. Now it is 2, 4 and almost-6 that brings a whole lot of physical, wild, unbridled energy in and outside of the house. SCREENS GIVE ME A BREAK! But, recent research shows us how we are teaching our children to never be calm, bored or less-than entertained. We are giving them toys, activities then screens to keep them always stimulated and totally enthralled. I’ve been reaching for less screen time here, and I’ve found some tips and tricks that really help. It isn’t as hands-off as…

How To Put Together A Car Wash Activity For Squeaky Clean, Toddler Fun

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #Dial2in1 #DialCompletesUs #2in1#CollectiveBias A car wash is one of my boys’ favorite activities!! It is a perfect activity for summer because they can splash and play, and it isn’t messy because it is just soap and water! My boys are super happy with simple bubbles. For some reason, driving in the soapy water, sending the cars down ramps and playing in the suds makes them super happy! When I set up my car wash, I make sure I’m using a nice, gentle soap. Because we are in the pool and at the beach a lot, the sun, chemicals and water can make all of our skin dry. The new Dial Complete® 2 in 1 Foaming Hand Wash gives you soft, smooth hands. Even after repeated washing. 2x moisturizing ingredients vs regular hand soap. Kills…

All opinions are mine alone. #LoveMyEggo #MoreEggo2Love #CollectiveBias I LOVE a laid back morning, where we stay in our pajamas too long and eat breakfast too late. Waffles are a big hit in our family, and my boys are a in love with the Kellogg’s® Eggo Thick & Fluffy Original. You can do anything with this flavor, add all the toppings, or keep it simple with just syrup. I don’t always have the energy on these long, quiet mornings to whip up a batch of home made waffles, so the Eggo Thick & Fluffy Waffles are a great solution for me. They are the perfect option for a simple, quick breakfast for your family, a nutritious breakfast for the health conscious, or an indulgent savory meal or complex dessert.

The Best Bagel Breakfast Sandwich To Take To The Beach

It’s no secret we visit the beach weekly, and sometimes it is easier to pack a bagel breakfast sandwich and eat it there, rather than spending a lot of time cooking, eating and cleaning breakfast in the morning. We would rather hurry and get to the beach to enjoy our breakfast there. So, I created a yummy little breakfast sandwich that we can wrap up and take in our picnic basket. These are super simple too, with things you will have on hand. Nothing too fancy. Just yummy and filling for long days of sand castles and swimming. David loves this sandwich, and my husband ate two this morning. If he approves, you know they are good. Here is what you need to make TWO of the sandwiches. Make extra 🙂 2 bagels pre-sliced (keep it easy) 2 eggs 2 TBSP butter Two slices of Mozzarella cheese (any cheese works…
