My Travel Tray: Products Nannies Love

I like a tidy car and stroller. I also don’t like when kids watch screens in cars. That’s why I love the My Travel Tray. It keeps the children’s snacks, crayons, and toys neatly in the car or stroller without relying on a screen to occupy them. Strollers, booster seats, and car seats have cup […]

Peeps Chicken Coop

I always dye eggs for Easter with the children in my care but this year we made the Peep Chicken Coop as well. The children loved using the sugar cookie panels, Peeps chicks, premade icing, and assorted candies to make this holiday chicken coop. You don’t see all the sugar cookies in our coop because […]

The […]
