I don’t know about you but I struggle with being able to focus and stay organized. Being on this struggle bus really makes it difficult to sit down with Ellie to have fun learning. However, I recently went around the house gathering all her learning tools and putting them in one tub. This works for both of us. Ellie’s tub is packed with learning tools that focus on her needs. Each day we grab the tub and spend an hour or two working through it. It’s filled with hours of learning fun because learning at EVERY age should be fun. What I love most about this tub is our next child’s tub will look different. You get to fill it with materials that fit your child’s specific learning goals.
Like I said, I’ve been really focusing lately with getting organized so that we can enjoy our home and each other. I believe we make life overwhelming. We think the way we run our home needs to look like everyone else’s life but it doesn’t. Do what works for you. When you feel yourself sitting on the struggle bus find a way to get off at the next stop! In fact, don’t wait till the next stop! Throw your hands up and say “Im done! Now! Let me off now!” Find a way to make life happen. That’s what I’ve been doing recently. Getting creative and finding ways to get and keep my family more organized. This learning tub is the way I make learning more organized so that it will work in our house.
What are some ways you stay organized?
Below are a few ways we engage Ellie in learning with materials from her learning tub!
