Activities can be sneaked into the day almost anyway -- here's 7 times of the day that we do them - 

#parenting   #ad   #bh  #kbn #kbnmoms  
I always get this question that I don’t know how to answer: Can you provide a schedule of your day that shows when you fit activities into your day? Simple question. A not-so-easy answer. Especially since I share an activity planner that helps you fit those activities in your day, but yet I can’t tell you how to schedule …

Saying now to messy play? No more...  #ThisIsHowIClean

#parenting   #kbn   #kbnmoms   #kids   #messyplay   #ece  
A wonderful go-to busy activity, not to mention sensory activity for toddlers, is to set out a tray for flour play! Flour play can be great for learning.

Substitutions for supplies you might not have --
I have recently surveyed my newsletter subscribers about why they don’t end up doing an activity with their kids. I asked what the main reason was. By far, the majority answer: I don’t have the right supplies. Yes. That’s my main reason too. I don’t go out and buy something just with the idea of doing one special …

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 …

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!
