Gap features reading outfit for toddlers

Cool that @Gap shared a reading outfit in the toddler section online #toddlers should have books in their life daily life. Read to your baby so that when they are toddlers they will be the one picking out the book to read together and their first word could be Book!

Toddler sorting colors game with cups and a plate

This involves foam fish from craft store and cups and a plate I have at home. I didn't have a yellow cup but it's okay, it made the sorting more to think about for Phoenix when I put a yellow plate down, and he loves this game we will play it a lot tomorrow and onward. We can use different objects or shapes too, to mix it up. Toddlers love having control and making choices and this is so simple to create but can be played over and over again happily.

Little frogs as a color teaching tool for toddlers

Phoenix took this picture with my iPhone of his new frogs.

We love Phoenix's new frogs he got at the American Museum of Natural History today. For me I see these little creatures as perfect tools for teaching my little one more about colors.
