Not familiar with Ivy Kids Kits?

Ivy Kits are a monthly educational subscription for children ages 3-8 developed by early childhood teachers with children of their own. You can tell these kits were developed by people who truly know young kids.  The activities are awesome. Not only can you subscribe to a monthly kit, you can also buy past kits.

Each Ivy Kit contains instructions with ways to modify games to best suit each individual child and provide adults with questions to structure a child’s learning. There are enough games and materials in each kit to engage and cognitively stimulate a child throughout the month and can be replayed for years to come.

Advent Bag Ideas

One of our Christmas traditions is our Advent bags! I prepare these bags each year and hang them up. We have a few different things that can go in them and depending on the year, I choose from what we have used in the past and sometimes add something new! My boys have grown out of this mostly but my daughter, who is 8, still LOVES this!

Personally, I like it because it is a great reminder during the busy holiday season for me. I prepare these in advance and then enjoy the simple daily activities with my daughter.

These are the printable number cards we use.

Here is a post showing all of our bags a few years ago. I took a photo each day to hold myself accountable! I then compiled all of them into a post. I love that I did this, seeing her sweet little face pop up in my Time-Hop on my phone every day in December brings me joy!
