#IAmAParent Take the Pledge - I’ve written several times in the past on my stance in the so-called “Mommy Wars.” To put it plainly, I believe in supporting Moms. Regardless of if their parenting techniques and methods are in line with my own. Because there is no one right way to raise a child and we are all just trying […] http://ow.ly/2X9vTO

Outdoor Ball Area - We’re in the middle of re-vamping our backyard and building a newer, better outdoor classroom. But that doesn’t mean we’re ditching all our old stuff. We had a ball area in our old outdoor classroom, but there was room for improvement. All together the balls area is simply a DIY basketball hoop, a DIY ball […] http://ow.ly/2X4bq8

Number-Line Balance Beam - Last year we built a small balance beam for free out of a piece of scrap 2×4 and two concrete blocks we salvaged. While it was functional, easy, and cheap, I was really eager to upgrade to something larger this year. This year I purchased an 8 foot length of 4×4 to use as the […] http://ow.ly/2X3Z6E

DIY Gross Motor Climbing Structure - My children, like many others, love climbing trees. For that reason and more, I made it a priority to find a house that had a large backyard with lots of trees. Unfortunately, while I found a number of wonderful homes, very few of them had trees. And those which did have trees, didn’t have good […] http://ow.ly/2X3Hu7

The Benefits of an In-Ground Trampoline - Trampolines get a bad rep. Understandable. Lots of broken arms and sprained ankles all due to trampolines. And the only positive argument we ever hear in favor of trampolines is, “they’re fun!” But trampolines are more than just good risk-filled fun, they can be especially helpful for children! When LittleMan was just turning 2 years […] http://ow.ly/2X3wAq

On Beyond Zombie, How-To Geekify Any Picture Book - When I first hosted the ABCs of Raising Well-Rounded Geeklings in March of 2014, I felt saddened at the end of the series. I had written about 26 different topics of geeky interest but that was barely even the tip of the iceburg! I knew I wanted to continue to talk about geeky parenting and […] http://ow.ly/2WzpR5

Yoshi - SunnyGirl has finally mastered her colors, so this will probably be the last color matching activity I ever prepare. I wanted to end this stage of her learning with a bit of a bang so I called upon our favorite video game character, Yoshi.   In order to create this game I used some white […] http://ow.ly/2WxbVT

X-Men - I love comic books. They’ve been a wonderful asset when encouraging LittleMan to read. But before he could handle the complex sentences and longer words, he had to start with the very basics. Here’s one activity that was most useful for our reluctant reader.     In order to do this read and act-it-out activity, […] http://ow.ly/2Wx7j3

Vader - Last Easter I picked up a few dozen of Darth Vader Easter eggs and we’ve since found all sorts of fun uses for them. We’ve used them in sensory bins and to make weight Montessori-inspired weight cylinders. Most recently we used them to talk about density and buoyancy.   In order to do this experiment, […] http://ow.ly/2WtA5A

Ultron - Avengers Age of Ultron is set to release in about a month. In celebration, LittleMan and I are doing a lot of talking about robots.   Last year we made our own simple robots, called vibrobots, from cups, small vibrating motors, and coin batteries. This year we decided to revisit the vibrobot project, only instead […] http://ow.ly/2WmGb6
