Self Isolation Week 1: What we did this week.

This is a confusing and difficult time for all of us and I wanted to share how we got through the week. There were ups and downs for sure, but for the most part we played, we learned and we shared stories and created some memories. (Click on the photos for links) 1. Washing our hands is obviously a big theme in the household, so we took it one step further and made kid friendly bath bombs. I ordered the ingredients online and used a Christmas silicone muffin mould. I added lavender oil for relaxation and it sizzles beautifully!  2. We used those empty toilet paper rolls. We painted them, cut them and even made them into binoculars. Here are some...

5 Reasons Why Design Letters are the Perfect Gift.

1. Eat + Learn  The DESIGN LETTERS collection is graphic and fun which kids love and then you add on the alphabet and they will learn the letters in no time! Better than reading the cereal boxes.  2. Personalized cups that are adaptable Kids will love that they have their own cup with the first letter of their name on it.  These cups grow with the child by starting out with the handle and the sippy lid then eventually removing the handle, then the lid until they drink on their own. Once they grow out of drinking out of this cup (which maybe they never will!) you can use it as a pencil organizer.  3. They are a classic DESIGN LETTERS have...

Advent Calendar Ideas for Toddlers-2019

When we were young, my sister and I had an advent calendar that our mom made us out of felt. Each day we would wake up and reach into the pocket which would hold an ornament that we got to place on the tree. We were so happy when the advent calendar came out on Dec 1 as it was the countdown to Santa's arrival. The anticipation would build each day and it made each day a special memory.    We have two beautiful advent calendars from Fabelab so you continue (or begin) a family advent calendar tradition of your own. These advent calendars will become a centrepiece in your home for many years. The house calendar is great if...
