As a mom, I am amazed at how many options for baby play time there are just using items we all have in our homes. This one is great indoors or out! It helps enhance tummy time for babies and may even extend an infant's interest in spending time on his/her belly. This is a one item, one step activity.

Are you looking for project ideas that will keep your child learning this Summer and having fun too? Take a look at Ivy Kids started by a stay-at-home mom and Early Childhood educator. Ivy Kids are book-based learning kits for children ages 3-7 (and even 8 year olds) that are created around the theme of a children’s book.
This post was sponsored by Ivy Kids. I only review and share products and services that I would use in my home in hopes that it can be helpful for you with your children. This post contains affiliate links. Please view my disclosure.
I was recently asked to take a look at the first two Ivy Kids kits that will be launching soon. (You have a chance to win two kits at the end of this post!) In each kit you get over 10 learning and play activities along with a great book to read and keep.

This house has seen some messes. With kids, I think it is inevitable. Without a little mess how do we ever have a need to rely on faith? If we are always able to accomplish everything every day, we may think we are perfect and powerful all on our own. God does not need us on our own. He gave us children.
" For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
2 Corinthians 12:10
Motherhood is unique-it makes us feel all-powerful and completely weak all at the same time. We birth life-literally-and yet are stumped and challenged by that life on a daily basis. I thought I would have all the time that I wanted to get my work done.The dishes would be clean, the laundry folded AND put away, the rugs vacuumed perfectly. My children teach me otherwise.
I had no idea that in order to be a better mom, I had to be pushed off of my agenda and recognize who is in charge. We can not reach farther into faith if we are never pushed off of our confidence.
