Children go from crawling to walking to dancing, jumping, and building; and it all happens so quickly! They need a space where they can experience active play but also enjoy quiet play. A well-designed play area gives boundaries while providing space for independent and peer play.
A Place to Sit and Play
An essential part of a play area is a place for kids to sit and play independently or with a friend. The P’kolino Little Modern Table and Chairs is perfect for this. With built-in storage, a chalkboard on one side, and moveable dividers, this set is the perfect addition to your playroom design.
A Place For Creative Play
A well-designed play area will give children visual cues of what type of play is where. A table set up suggests one should sit and play with small blocks, puzzles, and drawing tools. A cozy tent in a corner with throw pillows might suggest a place to read or play with a truck. Another corner may hold a workshop outfitted with pretend play tools or a pretend kitchen complete with the accessories needed for creative play. By setting up these separate areas of play, you help give boundaries while letting them using their imaginations.
Everything In Its Place
Everything has a place and teaching that at a young age will help in the later years. A good storage system in the form of shelves, cubbies, or toy boxes is essential in a child’s play area design. The Oeuf Mini Library allows easy access and high function and is perfect for those looking for a larger piece of furniture with a duel purpose. The Oeuf Toy Store, on the other hand, is perfect for small spaces. With multiple sized cubbies, this is the perfect shelf for kids to learn to help to pick up since they can easily see where everything goes.
At fawn+forest, the growth and development of children is an essential part of what drives us and our collection of playroom essentials were chosen with that same care.
Experimenting with the world around us and learning about the power of language is essential to growth and pretend play is a great way to let children explore both. When children are prompted to use their imagination, their creativity is endless and the options know no boundaries.
Play Kitchens For Creative Fun
Allow children to explore the world as a chef in their own pretend play kitchen. Milton & Goose Essential Play Kitchen is a great addition to a playroom. Expertly crafted by Amish artisans in the USA from sustainable Baltic birch and solid North American maple, this play kitchen is designed to last for generations to come and provide for endless hours of pretend play fun.
Create an entire environment for your budding chef with the matching Milton & Goose Refrigerator, pantry items, and kitchen accessories. These items allow kids to use their imagination and creativity as they cook up their (and your) favorite foods, organize their shelves, and stock their pantry. Creative pretend play at its best with a splash of sharing thrown in for good measure - a win-win!
Outside Fun for Pretend Play
Indoor pretend play is fun but sometimes you need to get outside and explore. The Baghera Tractor and Trailer allow for hours of fun and creative play outdoors. This metal pedal tractor pulls an open-air trailer, allowing toddlers and young children up to the age of six the ability to pretend play as far as their imagination will take them. From collecting sticks to build their hut on the homestead to farming the land for their lads, the possibilities are only as limited as their imagination.
At fawn+forest, we’re constantly looking for toys that spark the imagination and build on a child’s natural creative spirit. We invite you to browse our collection of personally selected toys here.
One of the largest purchases that you will make for your baby is his crib but babies often outgrow their crib within a couple of years. Because of this, choosing a crib that has the option of converting to a toddler bed is a great idea and one that many families are choosing to purchase. We’ve highlighted three Customer Favorites to help you choose the perfect conversion crib for your baby to grow up with.
The Pod Crib by Ubabub
Baby will cozy up in The Pod Crib, a cocoon-shaped crib with no bars or slats for babies’ arms or legs to slip through. Created with safety in mind, the see-through acrylic glass is outfitted with small cut out designs for airflow, without being large enough for tiny fingers to poke through. The included conversion kit allows The Pod Crib to convert to a toddler bed for babies later years.
Oeuf Arbor Crib
Beautiful and timeless is how we often hear the Oeuf Arbor Crib described. Sleek legs and a matte, warm-white finish enhance any nursery decor while the classic design allows for space efficiently. This crib converts into a stylish toddler bed for the later years and is classic enough to be passed down from generation to generation.
Stokke Sleepi Crib/Bed
If you are looking for a crib that can stay with baby for a decade, the Stokke Sleepi is the choice for you. A unique nursery furniture option, Stokke Sleepi’s comforting oval shape grows with baby into toddlerhood and beyond when you purchase the extension kit.
A crib is an essential piece of furniture for your baby and fawn+forest offers only cribs that meet our standards on safety, comfort, and sustainability. Our cribs are chosen with the idea that they will either A) grow with your baby or B) be passed down to the next baby in your family. Shop the collection here.
Choosing the decor for a baby’s nursery generally starts with choosing a color scheme, deciding on a nursery theme (or choosing to forgo the theme altogether) and deciding what type of decorations and art you want to include. Browsing quality baby nursery art and decor is a great place to start when deciding how to decorate a nursery.
Start With a Color And/Or Theme
Animals, nature, sea life, and the alphabet are just a handful of themes that people consider when they are choosing decor for babies’ nursery. Starting with a color scheme or theme will make it easier for you to narrow down favorites when looking for art for a nursery wall or rugs for the nursery floor.
Color schemes can be happy and bright, calming pastels, an eccentric mix, or contrasting colors for brain development. The colors and theme that you choose should be pleasing to the eye, create a sense of peace for you and baby, and make you smile. If you achieve those essentials, you’re off to a great start in decorating your baby’s nursery.
Baby Nursery Art and Decor
The space that you create for a baby is a space that they will spend time in, exploring the world around them. For babies, it starts with their eyes so choose eye-catching decor and art that inspires creativity. At fawn+forest, our art and decor are sustainability sourced so you can rest in the knowledge that you truly are providing the best for your baby. From what you choose to hang on the walls to the mobile above their crib, the decor in the baby room is an integral part of babies’ development. Choose items that add to the style and don’t appear to clutter a space. You also want to choose items that can grow with baby. Take this Ferm Living ABC Wallhanging Art as an example. A perfect decor item for a nursery, but also great for a toddler learning the alphabet a couple of years down the road.
It’s safe to say that if you are a mom, there are times you feel that your nonstop job is feeding your kids. Food is fuel. Your children require natural, healthy food to keep up their energy, grow and develop. It’s easy to see how the task of feeding them can feel like an overwhelming responsibility. Providing quality, healthy foods and skipping things that are simply empty calories does not have to be hard though.
Healthy, no-bake granola bites are a fantastic healthy snack for your children. Whether you are on the go and need a snack, or are simply looking for a fast, easy idea for something you can make for your kids, this recipe is the perfect solution.
They take minutes to make, and you can freeze them and have them on hand whenever the need for a quick nutritious snack arises.
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup ground flaxseed
1 cup crispy rice cereal
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup mini chocolate chips
2/3 cup locally sourced honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
- Combine all the ingredients together in a large bowl and mix until ingredients are well mixed.
- Using a cookie scoop make rounded balls about the size of a tablespoon and place onto a parchment-lined cooking sheet.
- Refrigerate for 1-2 hours and your snacks are ready!
Refrigerate in an air-tight container for up to a week, or if you want to keep them longer, you can freeze them for up to several months.
You could use whole grain oats, but pulse them in a food processor a few times first. If not you may need to add a little extra peanut butter or honey to the mixture to help them stick together.
A baby stroller is perhaps the most substantial piece of baby gear that will be purchased for your child. There are many considerations to take into account when choosing the perfect stroller. First, you need to consider where you live and what types of daily activities you are going to be taking part in. For instance, do you want to take your baby on regular runs around your neighborhood? Do you like to go on mini-weekend adventures and travel to new and interesting places either on trains or in the car? Do you need something that is easy to open and close as you find yourself doing endless amounts of errands day-to-day? Your activities play a big part in the type of stroller you should choose for your baby.
The weight, ease of folding and overall function of your baby stroller should exceed your expectations of what you need the stroller to do. You do not want to skimp on these features. If you do, inevitably you’ll end up regretting your purchase.
We have carefully chosen our collection of strollers to meet your needs, provide ultimate versatility and take precedent in overall safety with a collection of accessories to make life easier.
Whether you are looking for something lightweight, something that can withstand high-intensity activity, or extra room for your growing family, we’ve taken every need into consideration in order to offer you the broadest range of safe, quality strollers to meet your needs.
If you are in search of the perfect baby stroller but aren’t sure where to begin, contact us anytime. Our team of dedicated customer service representatives are here to answer all your questions, helping you make the decision that best suits your needs, ensuring your purchase will exceed all your needs and expectations.
As the holidays approach, you most likely have a list of “littles” that you are going to need to purchase gifts for. When it comes to toys for children, there is no shortage of available choices on the market. The problem that arises when there are so many choices is that there are simply so many choices out there that present health risks for children.
Even with extra government regulation and child safety standards, the regulations that do exist lack the level of protection that ensure all toys are safe for all children. So how do you find a great children’s gift the child will love, while at the same time ensuring that they are made of natural materials, safe for them to use and something their parents won’t be concerned about them playing with? Look at our line of Heritage Holiday Gifts.
Our curated line of holiday gifts has something for everyone. Whether you are shopping for an infant or a toddler that is mobile, curious and actively exploring everything the world has to offer, we have something for everyone’s life stage and interest that is sure to be a memorable gift they’ll love.
These gifts promote the healthy development of children, stoke the fires of imagination and make-believe and give peace of mind to the discerning parent as each item is crafted, with love, from the most responsible and safest materials on the market.
