How To: DIY Sand/Water Table

How To: Build A Sand/Water Table for Under $30!
Sorry this took me so long to blog, but I had to have a tool list and full instructions before I could do so.
A little history on my love for the sand/water table. I love the idea behind tools for tiny hands, i.e. the Montessori Method, and like to have Lukka 'figure things out for himself', even when he is playing. I try to have the most simple and basic toys available for 3 reasons: a) simple toys generally have less parts, which means less of a hassle for me
b) simple toys inspire way more creativity and imagination than do 'exact replica' toys
c) they are much more aesthetically pleasing to look at, therefore, not making every nook and cranny of our house an eyesore!
I know the last reason is just for me, but it's true. Plastic things don't generally last 1/2 as long as wooden or fabric toys, and they are unattractive. For this reason, I started to look for a wooden sand/water table as opposed to a plastic one …

August Titles // 2018

August was a month that -on paper-should have been a decent reading month. Of the days we were camping or away, I had a bit of time to myself, and although we had lots of kid-goings-ons (looking at you, birthday parties, sleepovers, special activities like Theater Under the Stars) and we wrapped up the month with spending as much time as possible over the last few weeks with our backyard neighbors who just last Sunday moved out of province. It felt more busy than it probably was, but with my free time being occupied with prepping for our next thing, or just trying to stay on top of basic tasks, and some preliminary planning for a few things down the pipeline that are homeschool related, I just had little brain space left to absorb anything. I was happy to finish our first month's pick for book club, and now am working my way through another (An American Marriage) for the next week. Waving the white flag on a short reading month:

July Titles // 2018

Although this stack was technically (mostly) read in June, it was a pretty picture that I wanted to post. The peonies were in full bloom and I had the whole summer ahead of me. Now, at the end of July I'm pooped! A lot of camping, trips, play dates, swimming, and just general outdoor mayhem of summer here leaves me feeling unbalanced and depleted. You feel like you waste it if you don't use it (the summer that is) because it rains so much of the rest of the year. Right now I'm desperate for 1-2 days of rain, but although that's not in the forecast, I'm just going to have to black-mark with an X a few days on the horizon to recover from so much going! That's where I'm thankful I'm a reader.

*Parenting Chaos by Shawna Wingert - This is a short and independently published book about explosive children. I'm going to be honest, I just needed to read this for comparison's sake. I have one child who, to me, feels equal to about three children, and I j…
