A Balanced Childhood

IMG_0015%202_edited.jpg

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!
