Double whammy today as we didn’t get time to do this activity yesterday...
Candy asked little miss to make her very own pine cone Christmas tree and this was the end result. The only thing Mummy did was take off the glitter glue pen lids as little miss even managed to squeeze them herself today. 🙌🏼 The photos don’t do it justice, it looks gorgeous (and very sparkly 😉) ❤️ #ToddlerCraft #LittleFingers #FineMotorSkills #AdventActivities #ChristmasCrafts #PlayAtHome #BusyToddler #SAHM #InstaMum #TheThingsWeDo

SQUARE PANDA! My kiddo only uses the iPad once every few weeks, but when he does he only uses it for this program! It’s amazing! I’m thankful my son doesn’t know how to navigate an iPad yet since he rarely uses one so he doesn’t  click out, but if your kid does you can turn on kid mode so they can’t click out. I highly suggest Square Panda. Would make a great holiday present for your kiddo! There’s apps you download that go with it. #squarepanda #toddlerlife #busytoddler #momlife #educationalprogram #teachersofinstagram #preschool #preschoolathome

Ironic how the past year and a half I’ve stood in front of this mirror hoping to see a smaller waist & yet today I randomly turned sideways & saw sweet baby girl. She has {popped} and then hidden a few times but today is 19 weeks growing her & I’m ready to have her be seen! 
Funny I dreaded getting bigger with Ellie & don’t get me wrong it’s not easier this time but I know it’s not world ending. I will get back to where I was but meeting my sweet Ellie & mothering her daily makes me realize how blessed I am to get to do this so I am embracing every inch I increase. 
Cheers to ya little one, don’t worry I’ll remind you of how I did so much for you one day in the most embarrassing way! 😉 I’m a mom, it’s my right for giving birth!

ICY ARCTIC SMALL WORLD PLAY ❄️

This was as fun to make as it was to play! I used different moulds and ziplock bags to freeze water mixed with blue food colouring and blue pom poms. We role played using our Duplo Arctic set, talked about how cold the ice is and then he started singing Row, Row, Row your Boat! 🛶

“Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.” - Mr. Rogers 
Richie is working on colors and coordination (fine motor skills) Since it’s Christmas time, I setup a sticky paper of a tree and made dots with markers and he’s got to put his sticky dots over it!
Festive and Educational! 🎄

Summer is well and truly here now so that means spending lots of time in the backyard! 🌞 Elijah is loving his flamingo that we found at @bunnings for only $7!!! They had several designs to choose from but they're only availble while stocks last so you need to be quick if you want one!  #Bunningsinspo #ad

-ABC Order Christmas Lights- ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I don't think I have ever shared with y'all but I am a contributor for @Homeschool4Me. And this little baby right here is a FREEBIE I created for Beth's blog. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I don't normally work on letters in alphabetical order with Rea because I want to be sure that she knows her letters by their individual shape versus their place in a song which really has very little to do with how we use letters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But we do still use that song and order when it comes to everyday tasks like filing so we can't ignore the order forever.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This activity is pretty simple, just print the template (I'll send you the link if you tell me you want it in the comments) and grab your letter magnets. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I cut my template horizontally so that we could line up the lights in one big long line, but that certainly isn't required. And we sang the song over and over because every time we placed a magnet we lost our place in the song and needed to start all over. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you want the link to this freebie, let me know and I will send it your way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Today mommy made "snow" in  4 different textures ❄❄❄❄
•
•
1st was baking soda + conditioner
2nd was white oobleck [cornstarch + water]
3rd was just flour 
4th was just shaving cream [glitter optional]
•
•
It was quite interesting having all these textures, my favorite was the oobleck 🐧🐧 but I also played with the flour and the snowman ⛄ the shaving cream just didn't seem that appealing.

Fact: this boy’s jokes & his brother’s giggle is THE best mood booster when I’m stressed. Those laughs seriously make me the happiest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also fact: these boys need to snack like every 30 minutes (#boymamas who’s with me? 👋) Their favorites include yogurt, berries and baked goods. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To say that I bake a batch of something like twice a week is not even an exaggeration. So I am ever thankful that since they’ve been old enough to sit up, I’ve turned baking into an activity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I pop them at the counter (used to be ON the counter before they could stand 🙊) and let them stir. First, with just cereal or whatever to mimic in their own bowl, then stirring in the real foods and now they even pour and spoons onto the pan 💙🙌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#momwin for realzzz when I can have snacks ready-to-grab and it’s been an activity with them (no craft today, friends 😉). #momtruth

Do you bake with your kiddos?? .

❄ Coffee Filter Snowflakes ❄

It's been so gloomy here in Toronto, we are missing the sunshine big time. These adorable water colour coffee filter snow flakes helped to brighten up our spirits today 😊

First we painted the coffee filters with water colours. I also dipped a few in water and food colouring. Either way works great! Painting was less messy for the kids then dipping. After letting them dry, fold them in half 3 times and cut out various shapes and designs❄️ Swipe to see how pretty they look hanging in the window 😍

RAINBOW SPAGHETTI 🌈 This sensory activity is great for babies and toddlers! The girls love playing with it. If you listen closely to the video, you'll hear Flora say, "It's so much fun! 🤗  This will usually entertain them for a good 20-30 minute chunk of time, and the clean up is fairly easy!  To make it, cook your pasta al dente (I use 1 box for each batch I make) and then rinse well with cold water. Separate spaghetti into ziplock bags (however many colors you want) and add about 2 tbs. of water and 10ish drops of food coloring to each. Shake well and then let them sit for about 5 minutes. Run the pasta in a colander under cold water until the water runs clear. Shake and pat with paper towel any excess water, and enjoy! 
I put mine in a white bin and experience little-to-no color transfer. Our hands also always stay stained free! Once finished, I will store my pasta in a zip lock bag in the fridge for a few days. It will keep but is always the best the day it's made. If it gets sticky, you can add some water or even a little oil. 
Juniper just kind of grabs at it and tries to eat it. 😂 Flora has fun using her tongs, kitchen utensils, bowls, and plastic scissors. I also hide different objects in it and have her dig to find them.

Teaching tip: Our little word walls have helped both my daughter and the 6 year old I tutor build confidence in their Chinese abilities. Children love having something physical to point to or hold to see how much they’ve learned. This is really effective for kids who are just starting to learn a language which can make them feel really insecure.

Word pocket from the dollar store. Chinese characters I just designed and printed it myself.

Copied @play.hooray rainbow roads idea today using coloured pieces of card. Little one instantly wanted to zoom the cars along the track into the garage and was not impressed that I'd put the cars on the wrong coloured roads to start with!

Omg my daughter is growing so fast ! Now she even helps me to take  pictures with the magic button (the red thing you see on her little hands😍). .

I can’t wait for our Miami Vacation 👙🌞 🥳 , and you finally will have other views rather than pictures in my living room 😂. .

Also so happy that I will be able to do my workouts from there too because I know I’ll be enjoying the delicious food than my family is going to make 😋.
.

But I’m not worry because coming January I will re transform myself 🥰.
.

Now, who would like a sample of my workout? 
Comment below and I’ll drop it on your mailbox aka (DM)☝🏻

Revisiting meal time 🍴 His bib might say he doesn’t work here, but I think otherwise 😂 I believe it’s important for even the youngest members of our families to contribute and have a sense of purpose in our homes. Just about a week ago, I posted a darling photo of him (and the floor) covered in food. As cute and quintessentially toddler that was, I knew we needed to change a few things about our lunch routine. Read on to see what we’re doing differently! #toddlermeals #toddlerlife #theplayatelier .
.
.
.
1. Presence: I sit with him from the start to the finish of the meal. I previously would use his lunch time to catch up on a few small chores around the kitchen; for now, those can wait. .
.
2. Communication: I reinforce signing and pointing for what he wants. We had started to introduce signing, but as with teaching & learning most things it requires consistency. .
.
3. Clean Up: He loves to help and is fascinated with baby wipes so it’s a win-win. His favorite part is taking one out of the box. .

Another Christmas tradition done 🎄❤️💚 Blayke loved making cookies, especially the rolling, cutting and sprinkles ✨ but in all honestly she has had a tough week getting into everything she is not supposed to including taking all of the ornaments off the tree, trying to sit in the tree and wanting to unplug it and plug it back in no matter how many times I redirect her. Any other fun ideas and activities for toddlers that hold their attention would be greatly appreciated 😆

Šivanje papira :) Danas smo u kući bile možda pola sata, ali evo naše jučerašnje aktivnosti u božićnim bojama :) Izvrsna za finu motoriku i za ruka-oko koordinaciju. Mislim da je 4+, a starijima možete dati i da precizno po crti izrezuju ove papire. Uskoro ću uvesti i najosnovniji bod za šivanje pa je ovo izvrstan početak za to. Karton u kojeg se umeće ne smije biti prečvrst, a papirići ne smiju biti prelagani. Mislim da ćete shvatiti ako budete radili. Naš karton je pozadina crtaćeg bloka, a papiri su kvalitetan kolaž. ⭐⭐⭐ #homeschooling #homeschool #unschooling #toddlercrafts #wintercraft #december #naturecraft #toddler#toddleractivities #toddlerhomeschool #momlife #winter#busytoddler #learningthroughplay #diy #craft #inspiration #colors #christmas #christmascraftsforkids #xmas #kidscraft101#waldorfhomeschool #preschool #montessori#earlychildhood#kidsdiy#paperweaving

We built edible snowman since we live in the tropics, and they get to eat and share them with their friends (and practice their fine motor skill in the process!) #christmastraditions #christmasbucketlist #busytoddler #toddlerfun #toddleractivity #toddlercrafts

☃️ FAUX SNOW SENSORY BIN ⛄Where we live there is no snow 😔 so we miss out on fun, snow play unless we go on vacation and trust me there is nothing like snow. Nothing. So second best is making faux snow at home! It makes for wonderful #sensoryplay and is just downright fun and awesome! This #craftactivity was really enjoyable for my #activelittle ! She loved using the utensils to pick up the erasors and faux snow! It's also great for #toddlers to get the feel of it or in a zip lock bag, although this specific recipe is not taste safe because it includes conditioner and lots of baking soda! This pretend snow recipe was just 4.5 cups of baking soda (roughly 2 boxes and a little more) and 3/4 cup conditioner! Its best to use white conditioner for the color of the Snow (we just used mane n tale horse conditioner which has a slightly yellow white tint, it's just the one we had on hand and it seemed to work well!) If your interested in a 'taste safe' snow #sensoryplay option (there are many! But...) with only 2 ingredients, try this: 8 cups cornstarch to 1 cup of oil ! That's it! Hope you try it out! Don't forget to tag me! I would love to see how yours turns out 😍❤

Cabin Fever? Try The Candy Cane Game! You’ll be amazed at how long this keeps your kids entertained! Hide a candy cane anywhere in the house and have them go on a scavenger hunt for it. There are many way to play this game, hide candy canes while your kids are napping/sleeping and tell them that elves came and hid candy canes throughout the house. For older kids, make a map with clues leading them to the hidden candy canes. You can even play the hot/cold game, plus this is a great way to work on directional words/terms with your littles! #happywednesday

🎄💌 Christmas Cards 💌🎄
Each year Lottie and I make our own Christmas cards. We have so many friends and family living all over the world, I think it’s really special for them to receive something handmade - especially as we don’t get to see them often.
This year we made these Rudolf cards - aren’t they just too cute!!! 💕
I helped Lottie make some footprints 👣 with brown paint and once dry Lottie and I added goggly eyes and a red Pom-Pom for the nose and mounted them on some good quality card.  I know our friends and family are going to absolutely love receiving these!

Christmas tree 🎄 oh Christmas tree how you make my momma heart so happy!! This is the stuff I dreamed of when becoming a momma! The memories. Putting Ellie in MDO this past year has been the best choice I could have ever made. It has been such a blessing to her & I. 
Looking forward to 2019 but man 2018 has been pretty wonderful.

Do you wanna build a snowman?? ⛄️🎶⛄️

Well, that’s what we did today! Using homemade play dough and lots of fun materials including twigs, felt scarves & buttons, the kids created their very own snowmen! Aren’t they adorable? 😁 We also read a story called ‘Snow’ and each child received a fake snowball to bring home (that felt very real!)

Feeling so festive! Is it snowing where you are?? Nothing here yet! #snowman #wintercrafts #playdoughfun

"All get ready for your Christmas scrub!"
Mrs. Wishy Washy's animals all need a bath before Christmas so we are helping them out with our sudsy, bubbly sensory bin. My kitchen floor may have looked like Mrs. Wishy Washy's bathroom floor & my son will not need a bath tonight but we had lots of fun.

It took us about an hour to put this playmobil barn together and then I dropped it and we had to rebuild it. It was worth it when Hudson saw Hudson Elf on his little horse robots though 🐎 😄

This is not the greatest picture but here is what we collected on our hunt. We walked  around singing We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and looking for and finding items to place in our bags to retell the story.

When we were done we stapled all the bags to a piece cardstock in the order of the story.

🍫Advent Calendar🍫
.
The girls have both got a chocolate advent calendar this year. They are great for encouraging counting and understanding dates (the chocolate is certainly an incentive!).
.
We've torn the doors off ours, and they make the perfect resource for ordering, counting, telling stories, the list goes on! As you can see, Little E (23 months) went for a classic lining up approach, while EJ (3.25) opted to sort them into picture and word cards!

It’s not about how you look...it’s about how you feel. That was said in the workout this morning.

Sounds cliche, but it’s totally true! And the crazy thing is, the better you feel, the better you look! Confidence is beautiful and radiant. ❤️

Work to FEEL better, and I promise the rest will fall into place.

Potato Print Paper 🥔 ⭐️ 🎨 
Materials:
.⭐️Roll/sheets of paper
.⭐️Cookie cutters
.⭐️Potatoes halved
.⭐️Sharp knife
.⭐️Plates (for paint)
.⭐️Paint (we chose green and red) .
.
.
🥔 I used cookie cutters to help create a perfectly shaped star. I pressed the cookie cutter into the potato half and then used a sharp knife to cut away the excess potato. My 4 year old and 2 year old loved participating in this activity. Dipping each potato into paint and then stamping prints all over the paper. .
.
🥔 This activity helps children with placement of shapes and colours, creativity and hand-eye coordination.

Yesterday was day two of fine motor jingle bell activities in our house! We put spaghetti noodles in play-doh and then laced jingle bells onto them. Though Miss Jo only played with it the way I intended for maybe two minutes. 🤷‍♀️After placing only two bells on each noodle, she said, “I’m taking them off now.” But that’s ok! My activity morphed into her using the spaghetti noodles to give “flu shots” to the play-doh followed by adding “adhesive bandages.”This activity then morphed into her asking me, “do crabs have blood?” I’m not really sure where crabs came from, but we spent the next 20 minutes looking up and learning about crab blood. Fun fact, Horseshoe Crabs have blood that is baby blue in color and harvested by people for its medical qualities! Who knew?

But I have kids.
But my circumstances are different. 
But I’ve failed before.
But I’m from a small town.
But I don’t have any friends. 
But my parents need me.
But I work too many long hours. 
But I have student loans.
But I don’t know enough. 
But I have credit card debt.
But I already eat well. 
But I already feel great.
But I'm not in shape.
But I’m fearful. ✋🏼#holdupwaitaminute🤚🏼 What if you said “BECAUSE” instead of “BUT...”💫 See how different it feels?! What if this COULD change everything in your health, your family, your finances?

Off the grid lately because of the busy season but with Adam’s active mode lately, we didn’t need to prepare anything to keep him busy. He’s happy turning around, walking here and there and he recently discovered about dancing (from watching Zumba in the park 😅). Last weekend, we attended a wedding and I thought we needed to plan out how to keep him busy but Adam slept through 🙂. He missed the reception but his new vocabulary included wedding and bride, which he still kept on saying until now.

🎄 DIY 🎄 DECORATIONS 🎄
I told you guys that I would be doing lots of activities that involved paper plates, didn't I?! 🙋‍♀️ Well, here is what we got up to today - DIY Christmas Decorations 🎄 It was SO easy and kept BOTH boys busy for about 10 minutes 🙈 and surprisingly they did it nicely together, when they weren't stealing each other's pencils and stickers 🤦‍♀️ I painted the plates before we started (coz I couldn't be bothered dealing with 2 kids AND paint 🙅‍♀️) then I let the kids decorate the plates however they liked, cut them into a spiral shape, popped some ribbon on them to hang them up and finished them with a little decoration off of the Christmas tree (this weighed them down so you can really see the spiral shape as they hang) 🙌 I think they look super pretty 😍

Christmas sensory bin. My 3yr old loved helping to make this sensory activity as much as she enjoyed playing with it. First, add a few drops of food colouring to rice in a plastic container and shake, shake, shake. Her favourite part is opening the lid for the big colour change reveal. Then, grab some of your Christmas objects, one or two small jars, and scoopers. Finally, let them play!

I just did a preview of what's to come with this little stepper, and oh my! 
I LOVE this thing!❤️ .
Literally, 20 minutes and my entire body is dripping! Like, my legs are burning, and not because my muscles are on fire. .. it's from the sweat! What can I say, I just shaved last night and well, #razorburn ---> #sensitiveskingirlproblems 🤷
.
➡️Boring fact of the day. .. Gin Miller came up with the stepper in 1989 for step aerobics.
.
And now, I want to thank ShaunT for creating a kick-ass workout and bringing this bad boy back!
.
Now, where can I find one of those old school spandex outfits for when the full workout launches. .. just kidding, mine is already hanging in my closet!😉
.
And hey, you want to bust out your own spandex and get a 20 minute upgrade to a stepper workout, hit me up! . ..And okay, so the spandex is not a requirement, just so ya know!🙌

What can I say, I just shaved last night and well, #razorburn  --->#sensitiveskingirlproblems  🤷 . ➡️Boring fact of the day. .. Gin Miller came up with the stepper in 1989 for step aerobics. . And now, I want to thank ShaunT for creating a kick-ass workout and bringing this bad boy back! . Now, where can I find one of those old school spandex outfits for when the full workout launches. .. just kidding, mine is already hanging in my closet!😉 . And hey, you want to bust out your own spandex and get a 20 minute upgrade to a stepper workout, hit me up! . ..And okay, so the spandex is not a requirement, just so ya know!🙌 . . . . . . . #motherhoodslens  #motherhoodunited  #motherhoodintheraw  #toddlerfun  #busytoddler  #boymomsrock  #boymom 💙 #upcycler  #makersgonnamake  #makersgonnamaker  #connectingmoms  #mommingainteasy  #momming  #farmlifestyle  #homeimprovementprojects  #styleathome  #mybhghome  #guildofwoodworkers  #doityourselfproject  #woodworkerlife  #thatmomlife  #animalloverforlife  #positivityiskey  #caringforothers  #adoptivemom  #adoptivefamily  #adoptionisbeautiful  #infertilitywarrior
