About Buggy and Buddy

Buggy and Buddy is full of ways to inspire you to create, play, and learn with your children, and in doing so, help form confident little beings that love learning! In my past 12 years of classroom teaching I saw the importance of a high self-esteem in children. A child that feels confident in him or herself and isn’t afraid to try new things will flourish. Buggy and Buddy is full of experiences to help to create confident children!

I’m a strong believer in following your child’s lead. Take the time to sit back and watch your children play and create. You’ll learn so much about them and discover some new interests they may have. So many activities on Buggy and Buddy allow you to work together with your children to create, while also giving them enough independence to discover on their own.

I’m also a lover of books! You’ll find many of our favorite children’s books on Buggy and Buddy paired with a fun learning activity to help your child connect to the story. You can find all my activities inspired by children’s book here in alphabetical order by book title.

I invite you to start exploring my site and find some activities that interest you. You’ll find things like this fun STEM activity on making straw rockets, how to make an adorable paper plate pufferfish, and  to how to design a paper plate marble maze!

Buggy and Buddy is also full of free printables and science activities to help you provide quality learning experiences for your child and promote creativity.
