You have multiple aged kids and you are not certain if an activity is suited to all of them.
You hate the mess that comes with sensory play.
You are tired of complicated activities that take days to complete or that kids just can’t do.
You don’t want to buy more craft materials.
Did you find yourself nodding at any of the the above?
I bet you did…
I’ll let you in on a little secret…
I believe activities should be simple, cheap, and fun.

Who am I?
Hi, I’m Nicolette.
Life with multiple kids can be fun and fulfilling, but when it comes to interacting in a learning and activity setting it can become challenging. This is where I battled most in the beginning. Constant questions on my mind included: Is my child going to actually do this activity. Is it age appropriate? Is it even teaching him things?
I bought toys (and many a book) with the intention to use them for teaching certain skills. Instead they lay unused on the shelf. I had no plan and no clue.
As time passed and I became skilled at researching, experimenting and the trial and error paid off. I gained the confidence to explore messy activities, prep better, organize materials and follow my childs interests for a more engaging experience. I am no longer blindly preparing activities, I use simple materials that fit my budget and most importantly, I am purposeful in what I do.
