Hand Soap Pens

I get so annoyed telling some of my Nanny Kids to wash their hands with soap for at least 20 seconds and they keep running water and not using soap! But that has all changed now that a Mom Boss I work for bought hand soap pens. The child I care for who thought washing […]

Window Crayons and Markers

Using Window Crayons and Window Glass Markers are an easy boredom buster for children. My Nanny Kids decided to just make snowflakes on a mudroom window with Window Crayons but I recommend encouraging the children in your care to use aWindow Stencil Set for more intricate designs. Feel free to try them all: Window Crayons, […]

Reusable Produce Bags that Have Multiple Uses

The state I live in will no longer allow the use of one-time-use plastic or paper bags starting this Spring. Many towns have already transitioned to using reusable bags only.

A preschooler I babysit for really loves playing with Rainbow Pebbles. They make a great holiday or birthday gift. These lightweight, colorful stones with a smooth surface are a wonderfully tactile early math resource. The preschooler I care for is fascinated by the pebbles’ bright colors, odd shapes, and warm feel which makes stacking fun. […]

Portable Urinals and Toilets

I was shocked when a child came over for a play date and peed in my Nanny Family’s backyard bushes! He told me his nanny always brings toilet paper or a napkin with them in case he has to go potty behind a tree at the local playground. There are portable outhouses and a bathroom […]
