I have done some sort of "morning work" with Emma since she was two but had a hard time staying consistent. There were so many skills I wanted to work on and it felt very overwhelming!

Preschool Morning Work Binder — Yoga Pants & Pearls

I have done some sort of "morning work" with Emma since she was two but had a hard time staying consistent. There were so many skills I wanted to work on and it felt very overwhelming! It also felt like I was trying to do too many things and there were always supplies everywhere! I finally decided on a concise binder of activities that I can swap in and out and are (to me) the most important skills for her right now.

Penguin Sensory Bin Skill Builder — Yoga Pants & Pearls

E is almost three and a half and we are still working on identifying upper and lowercase letters as well as numbers 1-20. As an alternative to flashcards, I thought it would be fun to hide the letters and numbers in a sensory bin and have her work on identifying them as well as writing.

Mini Lesson on Teaching Children to Accept "No" — Yoga Pants & Pearls

Life as a mom of two little ones is constantly changing and keeping me on my toes. Currently, I have one buddy learning the art of the meltdown and another who has gotten very good at verbally disagreeing when the word, "no" is thrown around. We were having a lot of different talks about being a good listener and not a lot of success when I found this book.

With the winter Olympics coming up, I wanted to share our most popular activity yet! It also happens to be the easiest, which is another reason why I think it was such a hit. My kids are STILL asking to do this since I reintroduced it on January 1st!

Well, our penguin skill builder pack has be SUCH a hit that I recreated it in a Spring/Summer friendly version!

We don't really celebrate St. Patrick's Day around here and I know the kids would be freaked out by leprechauns BUT I love an excuse for a new homemade playdough!

Easter Story for Children — Yoga Pants & Pearls

Good Friday is just a week away and we are very excited to celebrate out risen Savior! Last year, I created an Easter story coloring book and mini reader for my daughter who was two. Now that she is three, I wanted to make it more interactive for her. I revised the coloring book and mini reader and added a bible verse tracing version as well!

Rain Cloud Experiment — Yoga Pants & Pearls

We were really anticipating some rain this week but it turned into snow! Regardless, our rain cloud experiment is still fun for a snowy or rainy day inside. This is a very simple "experiment" using items that you probably already have. I did this when I taught my three year old class and they really loved it! It turns out that my kids were just as captivated by it.

Holiday Behavior Management System — Yoga Pants & Pearls

Although December is meant to be a month of celebrating and joy, as a mom of two young children, there is a lot going on! We are staying inside more, the kids are getting sick more often, and they are constantly being asked what they want for Christmas. This has led to a lot of bickering and selfish behavior so I thought I would turn my positive behavior reinforcement up a notch. We haven't done Elf On The Shelf yet, they are too young and really need constant reinforcement!

I took my original play dough recipe and made it gingerbread scented! I know that everyone is all about peppermint right now, but I am a gingerbread fan through and through. This playdough smells heavenly and is actually the easiest recipe I've made yet!

Playroom Makeover // Valentine's Day — Yoga Pants & Pearls

Valentine's day is so much fun with kids! The books, activities, crafts- we just love it all! I wanted to try something different than our normal play themes (ex. here, here & here). I normally pull out an activity at a time and put it away when were done to move onto the next thing. This time I decided to make little play stations throughout our playroom that we would keep out for a few weeks! It has been really fun for them. I tried to think of some independent/imaginative play ideas…

 We have been having a lot of fun with our play room centers and will be so sad to put it all away! I created two other activities that I didn't include in our playroom and plan to pull out just for this week!

Summer Reading: Outer Space — Yoga Pants & Pearls

We are so excited about our outer space theme! My kiddos are particularly interested in learning more about it, which will make it extra fun! We had quite a few of these books and found some at our local library!
