NYC with Kids, Addition 3

We took another NYC jaunt yesterday with Lucy + Greer and our good buddies so thought we’d add another addition to our NYC with Kids series so we can add to your list and inspire your next trip to the Big Apple! We hit up the East Village, SoHo and Little Italy this time since our main purpose was to check out Steamy Hallows Coffee Shop in the East Village…

Gardening With The Littles

It’s not a secret that I have a brown thumb. Truthfully anything I attempt to plant, if I’m successful to even get it in the dirt properly, usually ends up dying. However, in our new home I have made a firm commitment to embrace it, make our new yard our own and enjoy it while doing it! Enter my girls…

S.T.E.A.M.

Five words you want your child/ren to grasp, learn, understand, but mostly have fun while engaging. Bitsy came across an innovative children’s STEM-focused company that is going to blow your mind. We’re sharing KiwiCo. with you today to motivate you and your little ones into learning, fun projects and keeping busy (did we say while learning?!)! Kiwi Co. was created by educators, makers and engineers to bring today’s child an exciting approach to science, technology, engineering, art and math. They neatly and passionately create amazing experiences in all of these categories for children of ages 0-16(+!). Experiences like making and assembling your own light up wire art and a “fun with flight” experience where they are able to create their own funny-face paper kites that really fly! One of the projects that that Bitsy has its eye on and really WOWS us is the one that allows you to build and fire a real, functioning trebuchet that launches a ping-pong ball up to 10 feet. Yup. Mind blown!

Finger Puppets

Lucy’s birthday is coming up (soon 😁) and we’ve started the planning. So, as we think through our favorite gifts, we decided to motivate you today with another great birthday gift idea. Lu’s birthday wish list is more detailed this year, as she will be turning 8, so the pressure is kind of off to get super creative. However, we always like to surprise our girls with something a little more personal, more special from Mike and myself. We know you know at this point how much Bitsy loves Pinhole Press so bare with us as we share yet another great (inexpensive) gift option for kiddos that will really show you love them. And, best of all, this gift creates imaginative play for hours. Our girls adore them and frequently I will find them on their own playing with them, creating stories and characters and scenarios that would spark an interest in play in even the crankiest kid! Introducing…

New Baby

When a family member or friend have a new baby it is sometimes tricky to come up with the right care package to bring them to let them know how excited you are! Food + nourishment, something for the little one to wear or use and a hug. When that meal-train email comes through you can hop on it without stress. Through the years, I have honed in on my go-to care package - what peeps need (+ want!), a package that is not too expensive that is also easy to put together. Let’s face it - when I make others dinner normally my own family suffers and eats eggs that night! Today Im sharing my “new baby care package” jam with you. My gig is tried and true and easy…

Procrastination

Everyone gets overwhelmed. But how do you come out of it? I usually crawl into a hole for a few days. Then I come out of it, but only a little. It usually then takes on the form of inspiration boards, sourcing product + ideas and making lists. (OH, and driving my hubs crazy hee hee). Truth is, we've had such a world-wind few months and now that our lives are in more order it has been quite tough getting back on our regular schedule! I've been feeling a bit un-motivated myself and needed a rest, then a push. Does this happen to you? This weekend I made a big push in piecing together

NYC with Kids

We’ve received lots of asks about things to do in NYC with the little munchkins. Whether it be a day visit or a whole weekend, we head into the City all the time with Lucy + Greer. One of my favorite trips to NYC throughout the year is my birthday trip in April/May. Every time we start planning a jaunt in I set our family up with a simple plan: Find a fun | different activity, a fun place to eat + an…

Dining Room Reno

We’ve been working hard to get each room in our farmhouse renovation checked off of the list. Its been challenging since Mike and I have been doing a lot of the work for the reno ourselves and to-dos in different rooms hit the priority list that inhibit us from completing one actual room. For instance, our music cabinet in our family room is still not built. Truthfully, we thought that would have been the first thing Mike completed! Holidays, events and life have kept our list on its own track, despite
