As a new mom, I’m constantly asking myself “am I doing enough?”. I want to make sure that Olive is being exposed to new things every day that will keep her little mind wondering. I want to make sure she touches new textures, tastes new food, sees new colours and hears new sounds. Yes, I know she is only seven months old, but I want her to experience as much as she can and learn all about the world around us.
I was inspired by Melanie Burk of Fifth and Hazel to start a fun photo project. Obviously Olive is too young to learn letters and to read, however, I wanted to share this incredibly fun and super easy way to teach your little ones. I cannot wait until Olive is old enough to pick a word and we can work together to create the letters using different materials! Don’t you think this is a fun way to learn and recognize letters and whole words?
This week I was inspired by the ever decreasing temperature. It is almost permanently below 10 degrees Celsius. This word is a good reminder that snow is soon on its way!
I’d love to see your Unexpected Type! Share on Instagram with hashtag #thelittleredbutton
