For a little #fridayfun while I’m in the playroom mindset, I thought I’d share some of my favorite thrifted treasures from Pilot and Atlas’s play kitchen. These are things you can easily add to your play space too, to make it feel more personal and a little less plasticky. From L to R, top to bottom: • Salad spinner (this was one of my favorite things as a kid, and TBH after this pic was taken, Pilot discovered the newer clear much faster spinner in the basement and this little vintage yellow one is officially on the out). • Measuring cups • Folding sieve (these things are just cool) • Scale • Flour sifter • Fondu pot (these are always on the smaller size and often have pretty wooden handle and knobs) • Empty tins (vintage ones are so lovely) • Tongs • Food canisters • Cloth and hand towel (perfect for washing and drying dishes and hands) . . . . . #homeschooling #unschooling #playbasedlearning #playmatters #learnthroughplay #reggioinspired #igdc #acreativedc #thriftedfinds #playroomdecor #openendedplay #vintagetoys #dslooking #pinterestworthy #hgtv #childhoodunplugged #letthekids #clickinmoms #dontstopwontstop #ministylekids #makeover #sahmlife #vintagekitchenware #vintagekitchen

What's better than Friday? Not having to go into the office! Over the years of dedicating myself at work, I've earned the opportunity to have a flexible schedule. Today I spent the day researching and learning to continue to bring the best to my company and clients.

Another practical life activity: hanging laundry. Usually Jessi hangs her own clothes, they are small, so much easier for her to handle, especially since we don’t have a child size laundry rack. She also cannot reaches all the drying lines, she uses just the front ones.  Swipe left if you want to see her in action! ——- Do you like to do hang clothes with your kids? If you have a child size one, please share how you like it!  _ #montessoriathome #montessorichild

⭐️ABC ERASE⭐️ aka a timeless classic of how a white board dry erase marker can be all you need to make it through the day 🙌🏻 This is forever a go-to in our house and the reason I always keep a dry erase marker buried in our kitchen junk drawer 👍🏻 And by junk drawer, I mean junk DRAWERS (plural) because I definitely have two and feel like I need to be honest about that 🤷🏻‍♀️ All I do here is write the alphabet all over the sliding glass door, hand over a towel to whichever kid is having an umbilical cord moment and needs help finding their own independent way (I know you know what I mean here...) 🤣🤣Sometimes kids just need a little nudge to turn their attention elsewhere so we can do some really exciting things like cook dinner or unload the dishwasher😂 I just keep doing whatever awesome and exciting chore I'm working on 🙄 AND call out letters for them to erase. "Erase the M!" "Erase the letter that goes /aaaa/" "Erase the first letter sound in the word 'pig'" 🗣And while I'm doing my thang, they're doing theirs, and we are able to make it through the day just a little bit better ❤️ Once they find all 26 letters, we can shampoo this activity (you know, wash, rinse, repeat) and play it again 👏🏻 You could even have two kids playing together if you have more than one child who knows their letters 😱 The possibilities are endless - and all it takes is a marker in your junk drawer... ❤️❤️❤️
🌈🚖Rainbow Road🚙💨 . I had this simple little #invitationtoplay set up for TJ when he woke up from his nap. It uses our @grimmswoodentoys rainbow, DIY building boards (see a few posts back for that), and @waytoplaytoys roads. I originally saw the idea somewhere here a long while back (so if it was you please let me know so I can credit!!). . Have a wonderful weekend! (I’ll be social-media-free again 💆🏻‍♀️💛 so see you Monday!) . . . . . #woodentoys #openendedplay #openendedtoys #learningthroughplay #letthembelittle #sustainabletoys #sustainableplay #enchantedchildhood #childhoodunplugged #waldorftoys
I couldn't pass up @discountschoolsupply deal on clear school glue, so we made slime!! The kids really enjoyed mixing in the shaving cream. #slime #sensoryplay #playmatters #sensoryactivity #fun #messy #shavingcreamfun  #messyplay #getthemoutside #prek #preschoolactivities #homepreschool #ece #activitiesforkids #preschool
Celebrate National Dance Day by having a dance party with your kids! These hula dancers are doing a traditional dance from the Hawaiian Islands. Do you have a traditional dance where you're from? Is there a traditional dance from another culture that you enjoy? Let us know in the comments! ⁣ - ⁣ I personally love Irish step dance, and it's interesting to see how it's related to American clogging from the Appalachians. (Can you tell my ancestors migrated from Ireland to the Carolinas?) 😂
💛 Yellow day! 💛 . . Today we found as many yellow toys as we could in the playroom and then practiced counting them. With my 2.5 year old, we are still working on mastery of counting objects 1-5. My five year old is working on joining two groups of numbers— there are five in this group, and six in this one; how many would there be if we joined the two groups together? . . Then we painted ☀️ sunshine ☀️. Mr. 5 painted a pretty good one! Missy 2.5 had more fun covering the entire piece of paper yellow— and that’s awesome! 😎 The crafts are just an opportunity for them to explore. If they don’t make what I suggested, that’s totally fine!
When children explore musical instruments, all of their senses get fed, and this primes the brain to focus and pay attention.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #kindermusik #kindermusikhelpsme #musicclass #musiceducation #kidsactivities #mommyandme #daddyandme #kidsmusic #musicforkids #musicactivities #musicalmemories #playmatters #learningthroughplay #childdevelopment #littlelearners #earlyyears #mommyandmetime #creativehappylife⠀ #musicandmovement #feedyoursenses
