I’m kind of in denial about it being May tomorrow. This year is going so fast!
I expected to be farther along in my decluttering efforts by now, but I am making some good progress (but I’ve been reading about the problem of too much stuff, and that’s pretty motivating). Getting rid of stuff may not seem frugal, but when you know what you have you can use it, and stop buying things when you already have something that would work if only you could find it!
What do you do when an electronic toy breaks? Most people probably throw them away, but Little Worlds shows how you can let children take apart a toy for a fun STEM activity that teaches kids about how machines work.
It’s great for little kids to have opportunities to play that also help develop their fine motor skills. These DIY fine motor games from Wonder Baby are great for little kids and were shared by an occupational therapist who works with deaf and blind children.
And because it’s spring, it’s a great time to teach the kids about flowers and botany. Study at Home Mama has some great ideas for Montessori-inspired botany activities, and some of them you can do with things you already have around the house or using free printables. I particularly love the taking apart and labeling of the flower parts.
