Is your family super messy like mine? My daycare kids can tornado through here in a whip snap and make this place look cra cra. I NEED things to make my job of cleaning up after them easier. I tried the new Shark Genius Hard Floor Cleaning System to help me get a handle on this mess!
I really want to teach my kids where things come from. I wanted to show them how their clothes are made from natural resources like cotton. This year we are growing our own cotton. We harvested, combed, and spun a little of it so the kids can see their clothes are made from it.
The garden is a wonderful place for kids to learn, but how in the world do I plant a garden that kids work in and eat from? It can be a challenge to make a garden with kids, especially if they are very young. I work in my garden with kids ages one to five. Even a one year old can learn a ton in the garden and help grow food.
Isn’t it hard to find a good row marker for your garden? Who wants to spend a million dollars on those adorable store bought ones? Those are great, but when you have a lot of area to cover, you really want to have an economical option.
I’m super excited you are interested in making healthy choices with your kids. Kids, more than ever, need healthy choices and healthy examples. My healthy kids fun pack will help you along the way.
Kid’s growing bodies need proper nutrition for the best development. Their growing minds will remember the patterns set for them and will continue to follow in those footsteps all their lives. It’s much harder to make changes when you’re used to doing the wrong things.

What do you think childcare providers can’t live without? When I asked the question to a bunch of providers, I got a lot of interesting answers. Some providers said things like kids, art supplies, toys, books, songs, baby gates, reading glasses, cell phone, computer, sharpie markers, printer, copier, baby wipes, Lysol wipes, magic erasers, cheerios, bleach and things like that. Those are for sure things childcare providers can’t live without. I mean, what would we be doing if we didn’t have kids.
Reusable shopping bags have revolutionized my life! They work so much better than those yucky plastic bags you get from the store. Those plastic bags are overflowing our landfills, clogging up our waterways, flying around all over the world and getting stuck in trees, power lines, and everywhere else. Guess what else? They kill animals. When animals see them, they think they might be food and try to eat them. They sometimes choke. They also get wrapped up in the plastic and can be strangled, trapped, suffocated or any number of things. Click here to see what plastic is doing to our world.
Do you need a new menu for dinner that isn’t super difficult but the whole family will love? I make tuna casserole for my daycare kids and they can’t get enough of it. I love it too. I have a formula for making my own homemade hamburger helper type meals that save me time and money on food, but are made without all the harmful chemicals that come in processed food. This tuna casserole is a spin on that idea.
How much does my child need to eat? It’s so hard to know what is enough and we worry our kids are not getting the nourishment they need. Many times we think kids aren’t eating “anything” when in fact, they are eating the appropriate portion sizes for their age.
