Hi! Long time, no see! I have been seriously slacking on the blogging front but I miss it and I'm back or at least I'm attempting to be back.

Exciting News, Part 2

My Etsy shop is live! A lot of people ask me about the sensory bins and bottles I use with the babies so I decided it would be fun to make all our learning material available to others. When I was teaching I made most of the library centers I used with my students and I have been having so much fun making bottles and bins for the babies. My new shop is called WePlayAllDay:
