We take care of our teeth at Pitter Patter ! 🦷


Who knew a bunch of cups could bring so much joy!


Iam a firm believer in play based and experiential learning in kids. Children learn best when they are mentally active, engaged, social, and can make meaningful connections to their lives! We had a lesson in cows and farming. Milked Ms. Moo Moo and talked about all the things we eat that comes from a cow.


Sensory Exploration, “Calm Down Magic Jars”

Empty water bottle or plastic jars
Clear glue
Food coloring
Hot glue gun/Gorilla Glue

Invite children to fill the jars with warm water. Add 2 Tbsp of clear glue. Let children add their choice of glitter. Add 2 drops of food color. The teacher can seal the lid with glue … real good!!! Once sealed and dry, shake shake shake. Now watch the glue dance and settle, it's magical.

Socio/Emotional Growth:
Calm down Bottles are a very powerful tool for sensory exploration, for all ages. It helps children recognize their feelings and manage them in an appropriate and safe manner. These help with impulse control and regulating emotions and encourage kids to self soothe, especially if they don’t have language skills to express. When a toddler is feeling angry, they can shake it and sit down with it in a quiet corner to calm down and watch the mesmerizing glitter dance. As the glitter settles down, their emotions settle too. To further engage the toddlers, I asked them to look for the stars and count them.

Physical Growth:
The shaking of the calm down bottle is a great activity to burn off energy , in a safe way. It develops gross motor skills and engages your biceps and triceps. You can also encourage kids to jump while shaking, to burn off energy and then sit down to watch it settle. It also develops eye-hand coordination and is a great physical outlet to release energy in a way that is less destructive than kicking, punching or pushing. While the child holds the bottle and watches glitter settle, their eyes and hands will be brought to the middle of the jar, which will help center the nervous system. The slow settling of the glitter, acts as a visual aide to slow their heart rate and breathing.

Try it…. It may help the moms too when they need a time out! 😉


Happy back to school and best wishes to all our friends that are starting school today!!
