A Balanced Childhood
Welcome friends! I’m so excited to get to know you all and share with you how I am creating what I consider, a balanced childhood, for my children.
A little about me, my name is Amanda and I am a stay at home mommy to a five year old son named Nolan, and a 1.5 year old daughter named Kenzie. I am married to my college sweet heart Phelim. Before deciding to stay home full time, I was an elementary school teacher. I’ve taught 1st, 4th, and 5th grade.
What makes a childhood balanced? I believe, it is about providing children with the opportunities to explore, create, build confidence, problem solve, and learn empathy. A Balanced Childhood, is a place where I’ll share the activities I do with my children. Activities that aim to help develop language, motor skills, creativity, and social/emotional learning, while practicing mathematics, science, and literacy. I also hope to connect and share ideas as a community.
My online shop, is full of printables that I designed in order to help foster my children’s learning and creativity. I hope your children will enjoy them too! Be sure to follow me on instagram @abalancedchildhood for the latest activity posts and freebies!
