SENSORY PLAY WITH THE LAND OF NOD.

ice-and-sand-dinosaur-sensory-play-2

I know I’ve been bombarding you with posts this week, but I don’t want you to miss this fun project we shared on the land of nod blog using dinosaurs, sand and water.

I find that as our family changes to accommodate the schedules and activities for the older kids, the younger ones miss out on the playtime activities that are just for them. Sensory play is one of those activities. A few weeks ago however, we set up a sand and water table and the littles have been loving it… even Tilly! To keep them engaged I’ve planned a few different activities and their favorite (which involves squirt bottles of course) is the ice and sand dinosaur excavation.

Head here for DIY details and if you don’t have a fancy activity table just use plastic or galvanized bins!

(CLOSED) Giveaway with Design Mom // Living with Kids Book

Last fall I received an email asking if I would be willing to style a couple kid-friendly home decor spaces for a Design Mom (Gabrielle Blair) book on living with kids. Of course I said yes and then immediately called my favorite person to work with, Stacy, to snap pictures.

Today we’re celebrating our work in print with a giveaway! (keep reading for all the details)

One of my favorite things in the world is to see the people in my life (either real life or online), do awesome things and that is exactly what this book is, awesome. It’s full of useful inspiration and tips and I’m over the moon to have been a tiny part of it.

I first got in touch with Gabby a couple years ago when I shared a living with kids feature of our old house on her blog ( you can see it here) but met her in person for the first time last weekend at her book event in Seattle. It’s always kinda a funny thing to meet people you only know through social media and web sites in person but she was so sweet and cute. Not that I expected anything else.
