Since Mia’s birth, my favorite things to fill our days with were little crafts and fun sensory play activities. Before she could event stand on her feet, I was dipping them in paint and filling my fridge with “her” artwork.  Now, all of a sudden, getting her hands sticky isn’t as fun!  But some of our best quality time together is still the moments we spend baking, crafting, reading or decorating together.

When all I had was a toddler, I felt very competent at teaching her. Educational  play seemed easy to incorporate into our daily activities. But this year, as we embarked on Kindergarten, I felt some panic sneaking in. “This is it, this is legit! She is officially in SCHOOL! Am I doing enough? Or, am I doting too much? Am I doing the absolute best for her? Thankfully, I have found a curriculum that I love. It has simple and thorough lessons plans laid out for me.  Mia has enjoyed it so far and has already grown in leaps this semester.  
One thing that I felt was lacking from our curriculum was hands on activities for her to do. I did a quick Pinterest search for seasonal educational activities, but my high hopes and my actual accomplishments rarely align and I didn’t get around to picking up the supplies needed for the crafts.
Now it feels like it was all meant to be, because shortly after school had started a friend of ours released Rooted Childhood, and it was exactly what I was needing without my even knowing what I was looking for.
Rooted Childhood is a subscription, of sorts. Whats nice is that you can have the option to purchase one month at a time, seasonally, or annually. Each months comes with seasonally appropriate poems, songs, crafts, recipes, and inspiration for quality bonding and crafting time with your children. The activities are easily adapted for a wide range of ages. Both Mia and I have enjoyed working through the activities together,  and in the end, we have made something that I can proudly display in our home! If you are familiar with Charlotte Mason or Waldorf, this will fit even more seamlessly into your families rhythm. It has been such a blessing, because it is the perfect compliment to our studies this year.

I was so impressed by the time and effort that clearly went into designing Rooted Childhood. It’s all put together so nicely with a supply list and tips right at the beginning, so you can easily plan out your month.
Here is a peak at a few of the things we did in September. October is available now! I got to peak at October, and it a has all the wonderful-ness and fun that Autumn can offer in some beautiful and lovely family activities. I’ve been recommending this to all my homeschool friends,  but I also think it’s the perfect way to unwind after school, or on rainy and cold weekends.
