Jump & grab the matching shapes 

#preschoolers   #ece   #shapes   #learning  
This move and learn activity is a twist on something we’ve done in the past. Henry did this in two different ways. Matching sight words as well as matching snowflakes. This time, it was for George. And we matched shapes. I cut out a whole bunch of shapes from paper (construction paper, scrapbook paper, they …

35 ACTIVITIES TO LEARN THEIR NAME

Last year in three year old preschool, names were a big deal. So I can only suppose they will be again this year in four year old preschool. Henry learned to recognize his name pretty early on. At first, he thought any word that started (or even had one) with an H meant it was …

Doing activities with my kids. Decorating cakes too.
Introduction
Hi! I'm Jamie. My husband and I have 3 boys, Henry [a preschooler], George [a toddler] and Louis [my baby]. I'm a baker's wife and a hands on mom trying to figure out this parenting thing.

I'm the kid blogger and creator of Hands on : as we grow, a blog all about the kids activities that I do at home with the boys. We're full of energy and excitement and we sneak in learning opportunities wherever we can. But most importantly, we like to have fun with all of it.

I also own a bakery with my husband and decorate cakes! I do wedding cakes, specialty birthday cakes, plus the typical sheet cakes.

We got good family photos done and fast. Very standard portraits, but we got family pictures taken, along with ones of each of the kids (3) as well as some of all the kids together and even a couple of just me (mom) and the kids - so nice! Timeless portraits.

EXCELLENT FOOD! Outstanding burgers! And we all loved the fried ice cream for dessert. I loved the low-key atmosphere. And the Stellanator looks like a challenge we'll have to come back for!
