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! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. 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 work

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.

Our Kids' Montessori Gift Lists 2020

With the holiday season upon us we've been making lists and gathering gifts for the Kavanaugh children. It's always a fun process of observing my children, seeing what they would really be interested in and making some decisions based on what I see. This year is different because I'm also making decisions knowing that we are looking at a very long and quiet winter ahead. So that's influencing the amount I will buy and the specific choices I will/have made.  Henry and Nora are also at the point, being into the second plane of development, where they heavily influence the items on the list and what is ultimately purchased. So, you'll see that while Montessori influences what I will purchase and what goes on their list, so does their own preferences and personality.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.  Theodore Teddy is 14-months-old right now and as the fourth baby, we have so many toddler things. But, there are a few things I've still found tha
