Sometimes I feel like I do nothing but post about outdoor play but I can't help but share this one courtesy of Let the Children Play. I love the creativity and possibilities that loose parts bring to the outdoor playspace. It is amazing to see the journey children take when left to explore the possibilities of their own imagination. These children took a pile of bricks and rocks and turned them into something fantastic. You can get more details on their journey here http://progressiveearlychildhoodeducation.blogspot.ca/2012/07/never-underestimate-rock.html

The Province of B.C. (and the Queen herself) have officially proclaimed May to be Child Care Month and May 17th to be Child Care Provider Appreciation day. We like to think child care providers should be appreciated everyday but this calls for a little something extra. All regular priced items in our store are 20% off for the entire month of May and for anyone who stops by our office on May 17th we have a little token of our appreciation.

This past weekend my family celebrated my youngest daughter's 5th birthday. It was an epic event (to a five year old anyway) that took over our entire household. In my zeal to find "Little Red Riding Hood" friendly activities I stumbled upon these wonderful tiny wooden bird houses. They were the hit of the party. I put them out for the children to decorate and before I knew it they were hanging them in trees and creating little birds and people to live in them. You can find them at your local Michaels store for as little as $1.00 each!!
