It’s Wednesday. Let’s Shake It Up! Pt. II

Child playing with sensory bottle
Double, double, toil and trouble.

Fire burn and cauldon bubble. 

Jar of water, glue and more. 

Add on top glitter galore. 

This month, we're brewing sensory bottles. 

You can use all kinds of small objects like beads and buttons to make them unique. 

But today, we'll be focusing on glitter-based ones.

Also known as calm down bottles.

They are a great tool to use on the go.

It’s Wednesday. Let’s Wing It!

Bird feeding

Just like our feathered friends do. 

February is National Bird Feeding Month. 

One of the coldest months of the year, February makes it harder on birds to find food. 

So sometimes, they have to improvise. 

And that's where you come in. 

Now, we don't expect you to go out and dig up some worms.

It’s Wednesday. Let’s Get Cozy!

cozy winter ready

It's time to hibernate!

Along with bears, humans have their own version of hibernating. 

Let's face it. Winter brings it out of everyone. 

Shorter days, snowy sleighs, and icky greys. 

It's hard to not want to snuggle up with a blanket and call it a day even it's only 11 am. 

It doesn't even have to be sleeping. 

Watching TV, playing videogames, drawing, reading a book, drinking hot chocolate 😋 ☕

Any activity that lets you park yourself in one spot for several hours.
