Yellow Birthday Party -- Inspiration

It is that time of year again, Henry's birthday is right around the corner. ::sobs:: So, I'm in full party planning mode again. Last year, we did robots.

This year's theme was easy -- Henry is obsessed with yellow. So, what could be better than a yellow-themed party?! Pretty much nothing! He's going to flip.

I thought I would share some of my inspiration for the party. I have no clue what I'll actually be able to accomplish between now and the party, but I'm going to try!

I love the yellow here. I want to find a bunch of shades of yellow and do this somewhere in the house. But making this many paper chains is sort of daunting. I'm super in love with the idea of adding balloons with the paper chains, I'm just not sure that balloons even come in that many shades of yellow.

I would love to do something super pretty and a little more grown up in our living room. Probably for the fireplace. But maybe that's not the best fit for a 2-year-old's party.

I'd also like a super fun birthday banner for the living room. Like either of these.

Then, lets top it all off with a desert table like this!

Ok, now no one be super disappointed when the real party doesn't look like this. These ideas are mainly just for fun. The budget for this party is pretty much zero and the time to complete stuff is not much better!

Ahhhh! I love the garland in the first picture. Great now I want to completely redo A's theme! Only 2 days out from the party I'm sure I could make that work ;)

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2020

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! 2020 UPDATE: This list is updated for another year! Enjoy a variety of Montessori friendly finds from both major retailers and smaller shops!  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 toys, but only works for classroom settings. While there are many works that I recommend for home school use, you won't find these

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return.  That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. "A child learns to adjust himself and make acquisitions in his sensitive periods. These are like a beam that lights interiorly a battery that furnishes energy. It is this sensibility which enables

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
