Our ever-evolving playroom; an inviting sun soaked space entirely dedicated to play.
An engaging collection of toys that we refresh regularly.
Nestled in the Briar Oaks neighborhood of Apple Valley, our yard is an extension of the house.
Forts come in all shapes and sizes. This cozy bear den was a sweet hideout on a cold winters day.
Play-Doh Monsters, Shaving Cream Clean-up Team and Slime Time are some of our favorite tactile activities.
Jam session. We love making music, listening to music and dancing to music. Dance party anyone?
I prepare healthy, mostly organic homemade meals. We participate in the Provider’s Choice Food Program which provides nutrition guidelines and offers creative ideas that help develop healthy eating habits.
Safety first. OSHA certified guacamole preparation for an afternoon snack.
Team work makes the dream work! The kids love helping out in the kitchen. Whether peeling garlic, snapping asparagus or mixing batter, including them in meal prep means they’ll most likely eat it.
Spring adventure. Hunting with our senses.
Little explorer’s treasures. We were searching for something smooth, something rough, something colorful and something broken.
Letter of the week. Can you figure out what the letter E is? Rhymes with “heg malad mandwich”. We also enjoy less guided, self propelled projects like watercolors and scrap paper collage.
Meet Skye and Summer. Skye is our playful Mini Sheepadoodle who is gentle and loved by all. Summer, she visits seasonally. Regardless, neither shed and both are unapologetic kissers.
Rescued from the streets of Briar Oaks, we awed at this turtle’s painted belly, examined his webbed feet, high-fived him and set him free into the wild, wild backyard. Another day in the life at FORT.
Watercolor masterpieces in the making.
Story time. Mo Willems books are, hands down, our favorite to read.
A book brought to life. Inspired by Olivia Counts.
