Ever wonder how you can get your kids more involved in your day-to-day activities without sacrificing time from those activities (insert laundry, dishes, cooking, baking, crafting, etc)?! I was getting pretty good at doing everything one handed while holding Kiggster until carpal tunnel hit me and then I needed an alternative. Thankfully, I found Little Partners' Learning Tower and was able to do a review of their Learning Tower and Art Easel in Pink.
So a little background about why we sought out for a Learning Tower in the first place: I was working a full time job previously while Honey worked 2 jobs and was in graduate school full-time. We had someone watching Kiggster during the daytimes and when Honey and I came home from work/school, we were scrambling to get dinner on the table. We barely had time together as a family before bath and bedtimes occurred. Kiggster always wanted to be in the kitchen with us, want us to carry her so she could watch us cook but then I developed carpal tunnel so carrying her while cooking became a huge and painful challenge. I would end up turning on the TV and "keeping her occupied" while we cooked. It saddened me that she couldn't spend time cooking with us in the kitchen even for the few short hours we could have together each evening. So I decided to do some research to see if there was anything that could help us still have more time together as a family, but didn't involve me doing everything one-handed. I also didn't trust having a chair keep her safely at counter height since she was only 18 months at the time and not exactly a stand-still type of girl. Step stools were too low and only had the top of her head hitting counter height. I wanted something safe, sturdy, and multi-functional. So when I saw the Little Partner's line, I knew it was something that every family should have.
Here are some one-handed meals I've made while holding Kiggster at my hips, along with my post-carpal tunnel "set-up" pre-Learning Tower:
So now onto Little Partners and why they created the Learning Tower:
