Playroom Makeover

I’m so excited to share a little space of our home that we recently made over: the girls’ playroom! Our kids are ages two and four right now and it seems like all they are playing with is a random assortment of toys stuffed in ziplock bags … can anyone relate? #why

There is too much stuff, zero order, and it’s leading to less play and more chaos.

Time for a change.Β

My Month: April Faves

April Faves

Spring has truly sprung! April brought a little rain, so much sunshine, and promises of summer on the way! We had a busy month prepping for our business’ prime season, so we found some balance playing outdoors with the girls. No agenda, no place to be, just good old fun outdoor play. The sunshine is so refreshing after a long winter and we are going to ride the outdoor play-all-day mantra for the next six months straight. Since the month seemed to fly by, I’ll keep this monthly recap short and sweet!

Below are a few of my favourite things for April!

Spring Preschool Party Snacks

Spring Snacks Ladybugs

Spring is here! And that, my friends, is worth celebrating! My oldest daughter is in preschool, and a few times a year they have a celebration and shared snack at school. Last week they had a Spring party and I couldn’t resist these sweet little lady bug pretzels!Β We usually stick to healthy snacks, but Vienna loves lady bugs and the colour red, so I knew she’d be especially excited to share these with her friends! These would also work great for a Valentine’s party, too!

Today we are sharing five Easter books that are great for babies aged 0-2. These books are filled with simple rhymes, fun songs, bright colors, and easy engagement– perfect for story time with your littlest reader!

Easter is often filled with candy and treats, but we think books are the perfect simple gift to give to babies (and kids too!) for this holiday. We have always included an Easter book in our kids’ baskets and they are always excited to have a new book, and we know if will get lots of use and enjoyment. Win-win in my books! πŸ˜‰ And for kids a little bit older, be sure to check out our preschool Easter book list.

Easter Basket Inspiration

Easter basket inspiration for kids

While I haven’t really given much thought to which holiday I like next best after Christmas, I’d have to say it is probably Easter. I don’t know if its the addicting mini-eggs talking (seriously, what is in those things?!) or the fact that signs of spring are popping up all around, or maybe it’s because baskets are just a spring version of Christmas stockings, am I right?

Sleep Training & the Best Lovey for Babies

Does your babe have a lovey? We first started using one with our oldest daughter, Vienna, when we were sleep training. (If sleep training isn’t for you, please feel free to simply pass on this article #toeachtheirown). Miss V slept for 2-3 hours max at at time and while we were over the moon in love with all those new baby experiences, we were also Losing. Our. Minds.

One of the recommendations for sleep training was to have a “lovey” that always went to sleep with her and provided comfort. I think the proper reference is “transitional object”, but I’ll leave that to the sleep experts to discuss. πŸ˜‰ Both of my girls have a lovey and they snuggle up and fall asleep easily with it every night.
