Tiny Toddler Box Launch!

I know I haven't posted in awhile but that's because I've been working on something really exciting: the launch of my Tiny Toddler Box!


Throughout my toddler schooling adventures I have gotten so many questions and comments about the activities we do and how we find the time to do them! It seemed like there was a need out there for activities geared towards toddler development that busy families could easily whip out with no prep work required! That where the #tinytoddlerbox comes in!

Here's the quick and dirty - you can find additional information by clicking subscription box or FAQ above!

Who: 
The Tiny Toddler Box is geared toward toddlers of varying ages and abilities primarily focusing on the 1-5 range. All activities are easily adaptable to your child's level and abilities. You may need to provide more guidance and assistance for the younger toddlers while exploring the activities to help build their language and motor skills whereas the older toddlers can play independently. It's all about what's right for you and your little one(s)! 

What: 
A monthly themed toddler box shipped right to your door! Each box includes 6 activities prepped and ready to go! Each activity corresponds to one of the key developmental areas of toddlers: Movement, Cognitive, Language, Sensory, Social/Emotional and Art Development!

**To see some of our past boxes click on the subscription box link above**

When: 
Boxes ship on the 1st of the month! To sign up for the "current" box you need to sign up by the 25th of the previous month. For example, in order to get "April's box", you must sign up before March 25th. 

April's theme is SPACE!   🌚🌞⭐☄

Where: 
Boxes ship right to your door!

How:
Just follow the link below! Signing up is quick and easy - just choose the right subscription level for you! 


Why:
There are so many reasons that I could list for why you should give it a try - but until you try for yourself you won't know the benefits for sure! 

I can tell you this: I started these toddler activities with my oldest (now 3 1/2) when he was 1. He is now exceeding the benchmarks for 1st grade in reading and math! The activities are made to be fun and engaging but also prepare your littles ones for school in a play based way!


If you have any questions just let me know! I would love to answer them!

Toddler School Must Haves (and A Planner Freebie)!

Back to school? End of August? When did this happen!?

I don't know about you but I am so ready for summer to be over! Don't get me wrong, I love sunshine and all the fun summer activities but this summer was rough. Between potty training, crib training, Avery's I-can't-walk-but-think-I-can stage and then Cohen's I-hate-water-and-can't-get-wet phase, this mama is over it. O-V-E-R!


I am so ready to get back into a routine, wear my boots, drink my cocoa and start toddler school with BOTH of my boys (can you believe Avery is almost 1!?) We officially kick off toddler school this week with our Apple Theme 🍎🍏🍎

But before I jump back into the routine of toddler school I wanted to share some of my organization tips and must have items!

First things first, my weekly planner! I use this bad boy every week (usually while sipping a hot chocolate) to map out my ideal week. This is by no means set in stone because let's be honest nothing is when you have little kids. But it is nice to have an outline for the activities and outings I would like to accomplish! You can snag your freebie below! 👇


In addition to this weekly planner there are a couple of other items we use every week. These are staples in our house. We couldn't do toddler school without them! 

Sensory table 

Don't have one!? They are really easy to DIY (and super affordable too)! I used this DIY from A Teaching Mommy a few years ago and ours is still standing strong! Highly recommend! 



Liquid water color

This stuff is a miracle worker for sensory table fillers! Rice, beans, oats you name it! This stuff gives the most vibrant colors!




Bookshelf

We love our bookshelf! For just $12 this thing has been amazing. It has lasted 3 years. With boys. Who climb. On everything!


And that's it! 

 What about you guys? Any must have items for your little ones!?
