Fine Motor Fun With Play Dough Letter and Numbers

Learning letters and numbers doesn't have to be all text books and flash cards. Your child certainly doesn't need a pencil in hand to begin to build up skills that will assist them in their handwriting journey either! With this in mind, we set up a fun play dough activity that would allow both Miss… Continue reading Fine Motor Fun With Play Dough Letter and Numbers

DIY Learning Emotions Puzzle

Learning how to read and interpret facial expressions and body language is a important social skill. From the very get go, babies begin to look at faces.
