Gobble ‘till you Wobble (Board)



How is it possible that it’s almost Thanksgiving?! My, how the time is flying! I’ve been trying to teach Corban to say “Gobble Gobble” so that I could get a video of him Gobbling while he’s wobbling on his Plink Co. Wooden Wobble Balance Board. He says something that sounds like a mix between Gobble and Wobble but the struggle to get it on video for you is real! 

What I do have for you, in light of Thanksgiving coming up, is a fun printable for the kids!

Corban's not quite 2 but he’s totally going to be scribbling all over one of these! He loves coloring! He has a wooden table that we let him color at but instead of coloring at his table he’s started coloring on his table! We tried for a while to get him to only color on his coloring book but his table has started looking like a piece of art so we gave up. 


When Erica gave us our Plink Co. Wooden Wobble Balance Board I told her we’d try to keep the crayons away from it so it stays nice for pictures on the blog. She laughed and said if he colors on it I can just write about how to get it off. Well, just a couple of weeks later, I’m here to report that if your little one colors on their Plink Co. Wooden Wobble Balance Board, a Mr. Clean magic eraser does the trick.

I feel like you guys need to know how fantastic these Plink Co. Wooden Wobble Balance Boards are! When Erica first told me she was starting a business selling these I was a little confused by the board to be honest, but now that Corban has one we love this thing!  It is amazing to watch his imagination take off as he plays with it. He stacks blocks on it, he walks across it, he balances on it, he uses it as a slide, he wobbles on it and cracks himself up because he thinks it’s hilarious, he plays with his cars on it, he sits on it, he lays on it, he colors on it... oh ya that ones a “no, no” at our house.  Seriously though, these boards are amazing and engage little minds so well. I even like playing with it. It is a great toy for all ages! 

Just look at this kid having fun with his board!

We all could use a little holiday cheer!

  1. My 2.5 year old loves to color...on everything. Once he gets his board, I’m sure he will decorate it too! Glad to know Mr. Clean works to get it off!

Learning from Virtually Anything

I’ve been thinking lately while watching my son as he grows and learns, that there is an opportunity for learning in everything. Even in these pictures, We counted to 5 to get him to sit still long enough for a picture for the blog. I’ve been trying to use these little moments to teach him, whether it be a life lesson, or learning things like numbers, colors, and words.  He is so excited about learning his colors right now! We’ve just been using anything and everything to help him learn them but I cannot wait to give him his Plink Co. Color sorting peg dolls for Christmas! He also loves practicing those fine motor skills. My sister has a pair of air pods and one of his favorite things is taking them out of the case and putting them back in. I think these peg dolls will bring hours of entertainment to our house! It’s always a win when learning is fun! This year has been a rollercoaster to say the least!  All of you teachers and homeschooling parents rock!  There have been so many learni

The 123’s of the ABC’s

Hello 2021!  I hope you all were able to enjoy the holidays! My kids got some new Plink Co. Toys for Christmas and they have been loving them! Hopefully yours are enjoying theirs as well!  A huge thank you to all of you who completed my survey in my last blog post! I am going to try best I can to grant those wishes in this post along with upcoming posts!  This week is all about the Alphabet puzzle because Corban got one for Christmas and we are loving it!  I am no expert in education but I am a Momma who wants to teach and help my children the best I can, so hopefully if you are looking for more ways to teach the alphabet this will be helpful to you! I realize with Corban just turning 2 years old, it’s probably a little early to make a big push for teaching the alphabet so we are not stressing over it but he has taken an interest in it so we are just trying to incorporate it into a lot of things. It is blowing my mind how well he is doing picking up on it!  So here it is, the 1, 2, 3’s

Roses are Red, Violets are blue. Colors are fun when learning with you!

How is it almost Valentine’s Day!? Plink Co. recently has released several adorable color sorting Montessori toys including these adorable valentine themed ones so it only seemed appropriate to talk about colors on this blog post! (Warning: Be prepared for picture overload! There are so many different options so I have a lot to show you!) Perhaps you already know that teaching kids things like color sorting and shape sorting actually set fundamentals for mathematics, but this was news to me! This Valentine’s sensory box (pictures above) is absolutely adorable and has a little of both! If you don’t want the full sensory box though, there is a smaller angel peg doll version as well!  And if you don’t want the Valentine theme, that is not the only option!  These sensory boxes are great because there are so many things you can do with them! You and your kids or students can use your imagination and use them in several ways that all encourage learning!  There is the smaller angel peg doll v
