Numbered felt snowmen

When living in Sunny California, snow can be a little hard to find (unless you live in Big Bear or Mammoth) so I decided that we could make our own out of felt and build snowmen that could last forever.

Chocolate spoons

Inspired by some chocolate lolly stirrers that you can buy in the stores, I wondered if you could make them for next to nothing at home. By simply using a teaspoon, chocolate chips and a microwave I could bring a big smile to two little girls faces.
Not very healthy I know, but it is a great activity for a little treat and by the looks on their faces, I think they were a big hit!

Thankful hands

                  Thanksgiving is nearly here, so we thought it would be nice, as a family, to tell eachother what we were thankful for.

Joining the 21st Century

Hello fellow bloggers,

Today I joined the 21st Century... and have began to blog.

I wish to share some of the fun activities that my daughter Bee and I do during the week, either alone or on play dates. The ideas are mine and some are collected from various settings that I have worked in and from the Internet... Don't worry credit will be given, where credit is due :-)

I hope that you find the useful and enjoy them as much as we do.


Who am I??

Hi, my name is Kelly.
My passions are being creative and finding new ways to develop both myself and my three year old daughter.
At present, I have been lucky enough to educate and care for my beautiful daughter, at home. Prior to the wonderful world of motherhood, I have spent over 13 years educating, caring for and nurturing children between the ages of 1-7 years. I have worked in various childcare settings such as Private Preschools, Elimentery (Primary for my fellow Brits), Special Educational Needs schools and Government Initiated settings (Sure Start) 
Through working in these settings and with some inspiring educators, I have learnt some amazing and fun activities, to develop children holistically.
 In the current economic climate, I try to use found objects within the home and outdoor environment, to keep the cost of our activities low.
My aim is to share my ideas with you and bring you along on my daughters learning journey. I hope you enjoy the ride!!!
