Our Construction Truck Sensory bin has been without a doubt the biggest hit in a long time! She is independently playing and staying engaged longer than any of the other recent bins. It’s that kinetic sand man, it’s magic.Continue reading “Construction Truck Sensory Bin”
Our open-ended loose parts are probably one of Bitty’s favorite toys but with that said she is still quite young and often needs some kind of invitation to play for them. Enter our DIY loose parts tools!
Free Play is my number one thing I want Bitty to learn. Not only is it so important for her brain development but its also such a joy to watch her and see what new interest she has in a toy or what new game she has created for herself! There is also something to be said about the few moments of alone time it gives me. 😉Continue reading “Toddler Free Play Shelf : Toy Rotation : June Part 2”

The toy closet keeps all her toys together and organized so that come rotation day finding what we want to put out on her play shelf is a snap! We don’t use a complete bin system, I’m sure we will get to that but I currently prefer doing custom rotations and my organization system is set up to suit that!
You’ll have to forgive the poor quality photos…its a closet. The lighting just isn’t up to par. lolContinue reading “Toddler Toy Closet Organization”
