BumbleFly N ButterBees Wooden Coin Memory Game Review

Over the last couple weeks, Henry has become very interested in letters. 

Every letter, he points, "dat?" {That's "what that?" for those of you that don't speak Henry}

Me: "A" 

Hen: "Yeah!"

If Henry guesses, letters are either A, L, or Y. I know, random. We're working on it -- or at least we will be at tot school soon. So, I've been looking for great toys we can use to help with his learning. And, luckily I've found one -- BumbleFly~N~ButterBees Wooden Coin Memory Game!



The game comes with 52, 1.5" handmade wooden coins. Each is stamped with an upper and lower case of a letter with two of each letter. They are impeccable and beautiful. And, yet, awesomely educational. They offer so many possibilities -- memory game, letter identification, stacking, and so much more.



Henry really loves these. He's not ready for the memory game. But he loves to stack these, place them in a cup through a slit, and have me identify the letters. I can't wait for him to know more letters so we can expand our play and learning. They are the perfect size for his little hands. Plus, I love that they are wooden, natural looking and sturdy! You know, there's nothing I love more than a quiet game that actually keeps Hen entertained!





If you've never seen BumbleFly~N~ButterBees, you have to check it out! Besides the coins, there is an array of beautiful, unique, colorful, hilarious children's toys and household goods. Mustache yo-yo anyone? Wooden ninjas? Sangria flavored lipbalm? BumbleFly~N~ButterBees has it! And its awesome!



If you're looking for a Christmas gift, or just to add to your educational toys, you have to check out BumbleFly~N~ButterBees!

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2019

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure!

2019 UPDATE: This post has been updated to include a variety of brands and new product finds! Just a reminder that no one child will be interested in all of this or needs all of this. These toys are just here to spark ideas and give you a feeling for some Montessori-friendly options available! 


So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. 


First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created to…

Working from Home with Kids - A Montessori Schedule

One part of my life that I haven't talked a ton about here on The Kavanaugh Report is how I'm a work-from-home parent. Eight years ago I started to work at home while parenting full time. For the first several years, I worked as a legal writer while maintaining this space on the side. When Gus was born, I moved into working on sharing our Montessori life full time. It has blossomed into a full time career sharing content here, teaching courses, and now the podcast! Through it all, my kids have been home with me. 
This all seems more relevant to so many of us now that Covid-19 has closed schools and forced parents to stay at home and work while caring for children. I'm not going to lie - it's tough. It's hard to balance work and kids, especially when children are used to a completely different routine. But, it's not impossible! And, it can even be enjoyable. 

As I talk about in my podcast Shelf Help, we block our days into 3 hours groups. It helps me remain fle…

Which Open-Ended Toys are "Worth it?"

As a Montessori parent, I try to provide a mix of materials in our home to engage my kids! That work that will spark joy, concentration, and repetition. It's not always an easy task, as Maria Montessori said, "Life is mysterious...only the choice of life can choose the work that the child truly needs. Therefore, the teacher respects this mysterious process and knows to wait with faith." So, there does sometimes feel like there is a bit of trial and error when it comes to choosing materials that your children need. 

For us, the right balance is easier to find when I spend time deeply observing my children. Watching their interests, sitting on my hands if I have to, letting them struggle a little with things, and letting them get bored. And what I have personally found is that here at home, a combination of open ended materials and more structured work have been the right balance. Open ended toys wouldn't necessarily be found in a Montessori classroom, but they are perf…
