Fun with Snap Pop Beads

Your child is becoming skilful in using her hands, and many infant toys -- like pegboards and puzzles -- foster the fine motor development that will help with beginning writing and other pre-reading skills later on.Have you considered adding some pop beads to her toy collection. As she learns to pull the beads apart and push them back together, she’ll build strength in the little muscles in her hands and fingers. For added fun, customize the beads with the letters in your child’s name. Our large popbead set comes with a FULL SET of letters and numbers. Our vibrant pop bead kits are full of sensory beads with varied textures and colors too! Check out our bead kitsAvailable in USA and Australia

Work from Home Mom Tips: Time Management, Schedule, & Kids

One of the biggest struggles as a work from home mom is finding the time to actually focus on work. There are only 24 hours in a day, and never enough time to get all the things crossed off your to-do list that you want to get done. Alot of us have just found out that work at home mom schedule is different from a stay at home mom schedule or going to the office moms. You have to combine both your household chores and your job into your day, most of us without childcare right now due to the current health crisis. Most of the time moms start a work at home job to be with their kids, trying to work around nap times or when the kids are asleep for the night. The other hours of the day are spent doing chores, running errands, and being with your...

Coronavirus: How to keep children happy, learning and entertained at home

Toddlers: Toddlers like to feel useful, so clear some cupboard space and fill it with your child’s plastic eating utensils, wooden spoons, pots, pans and mixing bowl. Make sure it’s at child level so they can access it at will, along with some pasta they can ‘cook’ with. Leave cloths, dustpan & brush within easy access so they can ‘help’ you clean and allow them to wash clothes in a basin. This age group has a keen eye for the smallest things, so if you are not self isolating, a trip to the park, woods or beach will keep them amused for hours as they hunt out shells, bugs and other treasures, alternatively the same can be done in the garden. Another curious toddler interest is sorting stuff – laundry into piles, different coloured - shaped pasta into groups, toys into categories, cutlery drawer, shoes into pairs – So root...

HOW SCHOOL CLOSURES ARE AFFECTING PARENTS EVERYWHERE

The last two months have been trying, that’s for sure! Between running the household, homeschooling children and working from home, there have been a lot of changes in parents lives. This is one they have likely never had to deal with.   On a good day, managing the home and their job while the kids are in school is challenging enough, but then you throw in homeschooling and life before the Covid-19 pandemic seems like a breeze! School closures are affecting parents everywhere, me included.     I am a qualified teacher, so I have ample experience teaching children in elementary school. However, with that said, teaching your own children in a whole other ball game! The level of respect that students have for teachers is essential to their educational success.  You wouldn’t see them crawling onto their teachers laps in the middle of a lesson or asking them to...
