Practice Measurements with Gummy Bears
For children first learning the concept of measurement, standard units of measurement can seem complicated and abstract. Using atypical units of measurement, rather than inches or centimeters, helps the process become more interesting and concrete. Gummy bears or gummy worms provide the perfect nonstandard (and yummy!) novelty item for prompting your child’s investigation into the bright new world of measurement.
Most kids music sucks. Like sucks holy hell. As parents, many of us are mindful of the type of music that we expose our kids to, so we endure and try to tolerate a lot of things whether its endless plays of the Wiggles or even the Fresh Beat Band or countless spends of “Let it Go”, just to make our kids happy (and still have at least some tunes playing).
As part of our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program, this week Isla will be reviewing one of her new favorite books: “Silverlicious”. Be sure to check out our YouTube Channel for more weekly video reviews!

There is no secret that Isla loves to pretend to be a princess, and I am all for her doing so. Whether it through daily dress or tea parties, her imagination knows no bounds when it comes to pretending to be a princess. That’s why our favorite new book is “the secret lives of Princesses” by Philippe Lechermeier.
Are you looking for fun books to read to your preschooler or toddler about colors? These books have been our personal favorites over the years, and are definitely a staple in our home library.
A Color of His Own/Monsters Love Colors/Mix It Up!

Do you have any fun books to add? Have you read any (or all of these)? If so drop me a line in the comments section!
For the past three month’s I have been teaching the girls the basics (alphabet, number’s and colors) in English and Spanish. I wanted a different way to combine teaching them, that would also allow them to be able to work independently (and that wasn’t a worksheet or anything of that sort). I wanted something that was simple looking, and without characters or too cheesy looking, that included both English and Spanish numbers.
If you are looking for a fun and simple fine motor activity to do with your toddler give this a try.
If you are the parent of a child under the age of five, you will definitely want to read this post.
