This listing is for 1 Rainbow Ring - all the colors of the Rainbow are melted and mixed together in one Rainbow of a Crayon. A great shape to grab hold of, this crayon offers a myriad of ways to explore with color. Turn the crayon a little and scribble some more...like magic the color on the paper changes!
This Ring is made from repurposed Crayola Crayons, so the markings are smooth and the colors are vibrant. A dozen or so crayons are melted to make each Rainbow. Each is about 3.5" in diameter and about 3/4 of an inch thick. If thrown it may break. We keep ours on our Easel so it's available for color play in a safe tray.
These would make super favors for a birthday party. They would make the perfect "gift topper" for a fun addition to a gift box. They would also fit well in a stocking or make a great addition to an advent calendar. Available in multiples if needed.

Our World is filled with numbers. On signs, in magazines, books, money. You count with numbers. Pay with numbers. Discount with numbers. Paint by numbers. Help your little one better understand this crazy world of Numerals, Numbers, Counting, and Mathematics with this simple wooden Count With Me Play Set. Help deepen your little Mathematician's understanding of numbers 1-10 - both their numerals, written form, as well as what they represent. Stack up the circular coins to show the volume of what each numeral stands for...or lay the in a line - like a graph - to give a pictorial image of what all those numbers mean. Help build you little one's understanding of one-to-one ratios and number recognition while enhancing fine motor skills and playing with mathematics at play time. You can use the number cards as "money" or the coins as "change" while pretending to run a shop or restaurant. Our world is filled with numbers - let your little one explore it with these hands-on, open-ended play pieces.
Each play set comes with:
- 10 Number Boards - with both the numeral and number words written on them to support number recognition
- 55 circular coins that can be stacked for better number comprehension - what does five look like stacked? What does 5 look like laid out flat? --- Enough coins to visualize all the Number Boards simultaneously
- A wooden box for easy clean up and storage
- Each Number Board measures approximately 3" square
- Each circular coin measures approximately 1" in diameter
*All the pieces are left in their natural wooden state. I suppose you could paint them if you wanted to, but I would suggest using all the same color so that when little ones are relating the numbers to one another they can more easily visual the difference between them.
The pieces in the Count With Me Play Set are small and could pose a choking hazard. Children should always be supervised while at play.

This cute collection was made for my little one as part of my nesting project when I was pregnant. I wanted something I could bring to the hospital with me. I wanted it to be something she could appreciate later, something to grow into. I remember a couple days after she was born I showed her the cards, made by Mama with love. It delights me to no end seeing my children play with things I’ve created. Her favorite one was the black/white/red with the bell inside. I don’t know if it was the sound or how the red popped with the black and white but she would stare and ogle it in the brief time she was awake (and not nursing!)
These Sight & Sound Sensory Cards were the perfect little something for my little one to “grow on”. Each part of this ensemble has a high contrast black and white print on one side – great for little eyes and growing brains. I would hang one from her car seat as a something fun to look at while we traveled – for the “Sight” component. The reverse side has one of six colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple. Each of the colored fabrics has a different look and feel – they are textured to add a “Touch” component. For added texture and play there are four coordinating colored ribbons hanging from the sides – perfect for little hands to find once finger investigation and coordination are the modes to discovery. Not only are they finger and eye-candy but, when you shake them, they each have a different “musical” sound. So, when little explorers become interested in cause and effect, it’s a great reward for moving hands. A grow-with-me toy, even still…the colors, textures, and sounds make great conversation pieces and vocabulary building. Circles, Squares, Diamonds, Colors, Numbers, Counting, and Sound complete this whimsically sweet Sensorial Set – sure to elicit a giggle and inquisitive fiddle from your little one.
Each part of this ensemble has batting inside to help it hold it’s shape and has been double topstitched for durability.
Each card can be hung from a stroller or car seat with a link.
Limited quantities are available. Once I run out, I may choose different colors/textures/patterns – however, the rainbow will always be represented and the reverse sides will always have a high contrasting, black and white print.

I have been trying to add seasonal counting tools to our Learning Closet hence these cute and colorful acorns were made. These handheld manipulatives are great for transferring activities, counting, color sorting as well as a myriad of open-ended play (perhaps to make a "hay corn pie" as my little one always does!)
These Acorns have been hand painted with a nontoxic water based wash. They have been lightly sealed with a combination of organic beeswax and jojoba oil to keep the colors vibrant.
Each set comes with 18 acorns, measuring approximately 1" each, in a drawstring pouch:
*This Listing is for the acorns only, not the color sorting bowls which can also be found in the shop.
