Still life on front porch. The tomatoes were a gift from our neighbor. Doing real work in the kitchen: making pancakes with daddy. The house has been cleaned and I’ve done as much decluttering as I can.  We’ve pared back on our commitments and have stocked up on supplies. There are two casseroles in the [...]

Paper crowns

Last Thursday, I had the day off when Tig was babysitting. It was raining so we found a fun little toddler activity in the book Great Explorations. The kids drew on some long strips of paper with crayons and colored pencils. The book called for collage materials, but we kept it simple because of their [...]

“Cooking” in a real kitchen. Peaches starting to ripen in our garden. Our overgrown backyard. A date night at Cirque du Soleil {thank you R and T for babysitting!} Waiting for the recycling truck. Friends to play with. Umbrellas in the rain.

A week in pictures and no-cook play dough

We are pet-sitting for two weeks! This little cutie is our neighbor’s rabbit, and as harmless as he looks, he’s already chewed through a baby monitor cable and an iPod USB cable. My friend L came to visit for brunch. “Painting” the sidewalk with water, a derivative of an idea from the book Games to [...]

V has been enjoying some green smoothies lately. She likes to drink them out of bubble tea straws, which are much wider. On Saturday, we went to a berry farm and picked black raspberries and blueberries. Now, when we eat raspberries, she say “I pick em…in the farm!” The farm had pony swings. Having a [...]

This past weekend, we went for a trial run at a nearby beach. V enjoyed collecting rocks and shells and throwing them into the water. Happy times. We have also been reading At the Beach lately. I took the book out of the library in anticipation of our upcoming trip to North Carolina. Sometimes reading [...]

Activity bags

May 26th, 2010 · No Comments · crafty, fun with kids

We have an upcoming beach vacation, and I’ve been making some Montessori-inspired activity bags for the plane ride.  I first learned about activity bags here (and with nicer packaging). From the top left side, there’s a felt story board. I cut the shapes freehand from my felt stash. A color matching activity using the sensory [...]

A bike for our tyke and a heartbreakingly cute watermelon helmet

May 17th, 2010 · No Comments · fun with kids

Tig recently got a new (used) bike from Bikes Not Bombs. With the warm spring weather coming, he wanted to be able to take V around on short trips without using the car. In our neighborhood, it’s pretty common to see parents biking with their kids. V got a bike seat and a heartbreakingly cute [...]
