When talking to young children

Always watch your words… and make sure your actions and words fit your facial expressions. Keep it positive and real. Talk to children with respect always!

Be Creative!


It’s time for show and tell once again !

This is a real fun upcycle I did using and old night stand.

It now is a wonderful play stove.

Be inspired! Get creating!

What to do with the Christmas tree


It has been years since we went out and actually bought a real Christmas tree. ย This year we decided that not only would we have a real tree but that we would make our Christmas ornaments. ย After stringing popcorn and cranberries for hours and hours, and drying oranges and stringing cinnamon sticks, it looked beautiful!

When my children were younger, taking the tree out of the house was devastating so I came up with the idea of leaving it in the yard and making bird feeders for the birds.

Years have passed and my children are all teenagers, so what did mom do? Put the tree up in the yard and made bird feeders of course.

We use to make feeders by rolling toilet paper rolls covered in peanut butter in bird seed, but this is the mom version … hollowed out oranges filled with seed.

Now to watch and wait…

Build a snowman and your name

A very cute winter craft is making name snowmen. I made the circles before hand and cut out the rest of the shapes as well. When it was time for the kids to make their snowman they found the correct letters and built their snowman to spell their own name. They also had some fun painting with a scrub brush to make snowflakes on the picture as well.

Although when you have a one year old do this …. It kind of looks like the poor snowman melted hahaha

Self portraits


Making self portraits and learning our shapes at the same time .
circles,rectangles,semi circles,hearts…
the children made a picture of themselves using shapes and their favorite colours..
The end result was adorable!

Like I said ADORABLE ๐Ÿ™‚

kids on the radio sending out their Christmas song


Last year we had an open house for Christmas. The house was full of kids and parents, Santa visited … this year I knew that if everyone came our house would be way to full , because it wouldn’t be the same without everyone there, kids that are here now and kids that have moved on. Everyone would be welcome! So this year instead of having a Christmas open house we decided to do something different. We decided to make a Christmas wish and send it out to the community via radio. Today we went to the radio station and we sang our Christmas song. Next week it will be played on the radio station for all to hear along with a Christmas wish from us!
After the singing at the station we all came back to the daycare for some hot chocolate ๐Ÿ™‚

It was so much fun and sooooo very cute!
The kids did great!
