Yellow Birthday Party

Awhile ago I shared some of my inspiration for Henry's yellow birthday party and those of you who follow me on Instagram know the party was a couple weekends ago. 

I think it turned out really cute and Henry had such a blast. I'm a little sad that we didn't take more pictures during the actual party, but trust me all the little kids were adorable in their yellow outfits. But let's start at the beginning...invitations {from Paperless Post}:

The Decorations -- Most I made by hand over the last several weeks. A big thanks to Morgan and my sister Ashley for helping to decorate. 

The Food -- Again,  I owe a lot of this to Morgan!

The Entertainment: You can't have a bunch of 2-year-old's over without something for them to do!

Favors: An Oh Henry bar and a yellow fruit pouch.

The Party:

It was such a great day! And I would do it all again to see this face...

I absolutely loved this and the yellow here truly worked. Thank you so much for linking up with us today!! :)
Hello.This article was extremely motivating, especially because I was searching for thoughts on this topic last Monday.
I recently worked for a wedding here. At one point I was able to take a quick break and try the food. It was fantastic, the meat was fresh and tender and everything was delicious.

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
