Bananas for Banana Bread

Cookie Cutter

We have talked about how cutting and scissor skills are working fine motor muscles which will make it easier for your Lil' to write, but did you know that cutting has other benefits as well? Scissor practice works on hand-eye coordination and bi-lateral coordination...

Milk and Cookies

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie – Read with a Focus on Recalling Details

Everything but the Kitchen Sink

Cereal Crusher

Please tell me this happens to you too. Your Lil' gobbles up their friend's snack so you go out and buy some and they WON'T touch them. Or They have been gobbling up crackers, so you head over to Costco and buy a HUGE box. Now guess what, your toddler who was eating...
