Busy Week Means A Bored Kid: How To Not Feel Guilty About Not Entertaining Your Preschooler.

This week was a doozy. I had a self imposed deadline to get my new product line in the store. This meant: Finishing the crafts Taking pictures Taking promotional videos Sitting down for a Facebook Live video Promoting the video on social media And so on… I included Roo on as much as I could, […]

H is for Halloween

It’s here! Almost. Halloween weekend and all its activities has arrived. The actual day looks to be cold and raining… So we’ve been stuffing in as much fun as we can into this cold weekend. We went to a local pumpkin patch. Painted paper plates and turned them into decorations. Tried threading a spiders web. […]

G is for Ghosts and Other Halloween Fun

Halloween is drawing closer, And Roo couldn’t be happier. She is really getting into the holiday this year and gets excited when she spots anything Halloween related. Especially bats.

Letter C activities/C is for Control Freak

Letter B Activities

One of the reasons I chose to start Roo with home school preschool is because I wanted her to have the freedom to have “just not feeling it” days. Not to force her to go to school while she cries for me not to leave only to pick her up later to listen about how […]
