Googly Eyes Count Up

Grab the googly eyes from the Dollar Store. It’s time to get counting!

Lately googly eyes have been following me everywhere.

I found them calling my name at Office Depot, and then again at Dollar Tree.

Well, googly eyes, I see you. I want you. You are now set up for a Breakfast Invitation on my kitchen table.

Apparently this is how marketing works. Welp, they found their target audience and now I am here to pass on the love.

This googly eye preschool counting game is a hit!

Magnetic Measurement for Preschoolers

Find those magnetic tiles! Let’s get measuring.

Sometimes the best Breakfast Invitations are the ones with the least amount of supplies. Here, we are grabbing what we already own (or what we will soon own and have countless amounts of independent playtime with) and setting up in a flash.

Measurement is an important skill that can be practiced now and have a HUGE impact for later.

So grab those magnetic tiles and let’s get started with this preschool measurement activity!

Simple Birthday Party Idea for two-year-olds

Looking for a simple birthday party idea?

I was!

We like to keep birthday parties for two-year-olds very simple.

We invite some family, create a theme for excitement, and celebrate with dinner and cake.

Everyone gets in on the setup. Even better? We try and keep decorations to items we find in our home, or something that will serve a purpose once the party is over.

Get ready to blast off into space with this quick and easy two-year-old birthday party idea!

Noodle Sensory Play

Last week we added noodles into our sensory play.

If you follow us on Instagram, you saw that the noodles we used were cooked, squishy, and a whole lot of messy, sensory play fun!

The boys pressed the noodles through the garlic press and sliced them through the egg cutter.

Although this cooked noodle sensory play was win, it was pretty much one and done. The cooked, colored noodles were tossed in the garbage shortly after the boys were finished playing.

So this time around, I was looking for something a little more sustainable for future use.

This time, we colored dry noodles and it was just as successful!

Treasure Map Color Seek and Find Action Adventure

When it comes to your preschooler writing, there is much more you can do than writing letters.

In fact, if you have a preschooler that needs breaks and movements, this Breakfast Invitation is the one for you.

Bottom line, the more you help your child grasp a marker, squirt a water bottle, cut some paper, etc, the stronger their hands get for school age when things become a little (correction: a lot) more demanding.

A Letter to My Son's Preschool Teacher

To my son’s first classroom teacher,

I saw you waiting for my child.

Every day you knew he was coming. And every day my preschooler jumped out the back seat ready for you as well.

I saw you welcome his learning, his humor, his self; allowing him keep his tower up longer and longer each day…

I saw everything you did this year and I want to say thank you.

It didn’t go unnoticed.
