Tablecloth Playhouse!

sleep chart - - good reference!

Crib mattress up-cycled to a reading nook. I am so doing this!

Work of Art Clips at Land of Nod - super easy way to display and rotate.

Potty Training Tips- Dye the toilet water with red or blue food coloring -- when he goes potty it will change color to orange or green, turning potty training into a game.WHAT A GREAT IDEA!

Positive reinforcement - Put a cotton ball, marble, pom-pom, etc. in every time you catch your child being good. Do something special when it's full.

Punch a hole in the lid of a plastic jar and string a ribbon through it. Knot it on both sides of the lid. Great storage containers for kids' toys and they like the handles for carrying things around. - Repinned by LessonPix.com

SO SMART! Stuffed Animal Storage Idea. Simple bean bag cover (Bed Bath Beyond) & fill with stuffed animals. Why didn't I think of this along time ago? Awesome!

    This really is a great, realistic list. I feel like many parents put too much pressure on themselves to do TOO much before kindergarten...forced activities and such. This list is all things that can be learned naturally through play, reading with your child, regular social interactions, and imagination!!

    COMPLETELY agree!

Alarm clock that tells your kid when he/she can get out of bed... genius!

Kid Clips for Road Trips: The rule is this: as long as they are doing well, the clip stays up. But, if anyone makes a bad choice & decides to be ugly or whiny, their clip comes down. And if the clip comes down, they miss out on the next fun thing, whether it be a pack of gum at the next gas stop, an ice cream cone, getting to choose the next movie or having extra time on the iPad.

Letter from the Tooth Fairy -- perfect timing: Diddy's got a wiggly tooth!

Clutter Jail. If the kids leave it out, it goes in the clutter jail and they have to draw a card out of the community chest and complete the task to get their stuff back.

Clever! For the kids at the restaurant while you're waiting for your food: DIY busy wallet! pick up a cheap wallet. fill it with pictures, scrap scrapbook papers, stickers, and various treasures. My kid would LOVE this!

This is just begging for a poop joke. Still: I like it! inside the lid kids potty seat.
