A Breakfast Invitation for Two Year Olds

Your two-year-old doesn’t know all their colors?

Guess what?

That is completely okay!

Whether your child can identify colors at 20 months, or begin to catch on at 2.5+, the most important thing to remember is that all children learn their colors over time.

It is also important to understand that even within the same family, you can see large differences on who learned what when.

So do me a favor, and not sweat it!

Instead, join us here to begin to implement fun, hands-on ways to help make learning colors stick and get reinforced.

I am a mom of three little boys five and under. Mornings were not my favorite and I felt overwhelmed by cranky kids watching morning television. TV seemed to zap their imagination for anything that followed.

We all crave balance between being able to take on parenthood, and enjoy the days that come with that tall order.

I am here to help you achieve this balance with this startup guide.

Sand Sensory Play

We played with sand…and all is calm to tell you about it.

Now, I know. The majority of us believe sand should stay where it belongs.

THE BEACH. Amiright?!

But here is the difference when you bring sand into your home and use for sensory play. It does not mix with water. Keeping your sand dry makes it a lot easier to vacuum and carry on to cooking dinner post clean-up. You don’t want to miss this super simple sensory activity. Inside you will read WHY this is so important for development.
