I strive to have learning materials possess innate differentiation of skill sets and/or developmental progression so that what you buy will last through several years and multiple children.
I have a full time job teaching, so please be patient with custom orders and shipping. Items listed as having inventory are made and ready to ship.
If an item says 0 quantity, it can still be custom ordered unless it is noted as being a "one-off," meaning I only have those particular materials for that one particular item. Often I run into deals on fabrics or baskets that would make the item un-affordable otherwise, so the quantity is limited to what I can purchase for a reasonable price.
All items are personally created by myself or my family members,
hand dyed, or compiled as for Tinker Trays.
I strive for natural and organic materials whenever possible and
source materials accordingly.
Most of the herbs used are from my own organic garden, and the
wood cookies from my property.
All natural items are heat treated to prevent bacteria, insects
All fabrics are pre-washed in non-allergen detergent.
Curriculum items are copyrighted and nearly all of the art, except for one activity, is created by me. Your purchase is for a single download. If you need multiple discounted licenses for a center or school, please email me.
T-shirt art is also personally designed and copyrighted. If I feel a popular design is within the scope of this shop, I'll add it to the collection. Any listed as "Exclusive Design" are my own creation.
Lamination for activity cards is a heavy 3mil that should withstand years of use if not bent or soaked in water. If you would like any of my curriculum/file folder games laminated, I can do that in the 3 mil or a cheaper laminate for $2 per sheet. Email me if you would like this service.
The dye and finishes used for wood and sensory materials is all non-toxic.
Safety is my greatest concern, especially with infants and toddlers. A well-rounded sensory learning experience may push those boundaries, and it is the parent or caregiver's responsibility to know the child and materials and supervise both accordingly.
I strive to make a quality product and provide good value for your money. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please feel free to email me.
Please take the warnings seriously. If it says choking or strangulation hazard, keep this in mind and provide appropriate supervision for the particular child or age group.
