Getting to finally cut with a pair of scissors has always been a big deal at my house. Something about them just gets my kids excited. Using scissors is often harder than it looked to my kids. Finding fun ways to work on scissor skills with them has helped

My kids never sit still for long. I am always looking for simple yet fun ways to keep them busy. Gross motor activities are great to keep them moving and improving their large muscle groups. This snowman ball toss game was a great gross motor activity that kept them

I have been staring at these back to school erasers on my desk for weeks. I wanted to do something fun with them. I was thinking about a sensory bag but still was not sure. Then when I saw Preschool Inspirations Ocean Discovery Bottle I knew what I would
