For my baby shower, my sister had a brilliant idea idea to ask each guest to bring what they thought was one of the best toddler books instead of a card. So with each gift, I received a children’s book with a note in it for the baby, and I now have an awesome collection of books for my son that will last him years.
I’ve sorted them out by age so some are still a little old for him, but at just under 1 year old, he has clear favorites. In fact, some he loves so much that he’d prefer it over a toy. We joke that his lovey will end up being a book instead of a stuffed animal.
So if you’re looking for some great beginner books for babies or toddlers (or an awesome baby shower gift!), these are the winners in my house: (more…)
Last year, we started using a DIY Advent Calendar that my mom made for us and it was the cutest thing ever! It required that we find our own Advent Calendar fillers, which is a challenge, but also one of the best aspects of doing one of these Christmas activities.

My 4-year old has been hooked on crafts lately, so I’ve been on the hunt for fun DIY projects that are easy enough for him and also serve a practical purpose…because I can only hang up so much construction paper! So when I came up with the idea to create Hungry Caterpillar Magnets (inspired by the all-too-famous Very Hungry Caterpillar book!), I was really excited. And rightfully so, because it was a huge hit!
This Hungry Caterpillar craft project was so easy that he could basically do the entire thing himself…and would have been able to do it completely alone had I not wanted to make sure the magnets were super secure with hot glue instead of Elmer’s (if you’ve got a little one running around, you should probably do the same!).
