(July 10, 2014) Yep this month sensory dough is fizzy! All I could think of was a volcano, not much of a dough… So I searched around and found this post from Life Lesson Plans. It shows a malleable dough and it’s fizzy, bingo!
We followed the instructions and Nico got [...]
As part of Craftulate‘s 5-day series titled “Play, Craft and Learn with Dinosaurs”, we combined some learning with some fine motor skills. Nico’s been working on writing his uppercase letters, so I thought it would be fun to steer away from the writing work sheet and use a salt tray.
Little Bins for Little Hands issued a challenge to set up a rice bin for your child with nothing in it but white or brown rice and let your child decide what to put in. We did.

(April 11, 2013) Nico loves when we buy a big pack of toilet paper because it’s a nice seat in the shopping cart. Normally he brings it in the house and the bathroom, then he’s happy to have done his job. Today, before dinner, he wanted to open the whole pack and play [...]
