Equip yourself with the tools you need to teach your toddler without having to step foot into a store!

Each crate is carefully thought out to provide you with all the materials and tools you need to help your child learn and meet their developmental milestones.  The three included activities are designed by an educator and mother of a toddler and all have been kid-tested and APPROVED!  

Lisa Prins is an elementary teacher (with a MA in Teaching) by trade and now a mother of an energetic 3 year old boy named Jackson.  She has served in various roles as a classroom teacher, mentor teacher, intervention specialist, instructional coach, curriculum developer and now as a playgroup teacher too! Much of her curriculum work has now switched from elementary to the toddler/preschool age range as she prepares materials for her son and the playgroup.

Tinkering Toddler Crates were created when she saw a need from busy parents seeking ideas and materials for their child, but not having the time or desire to track materials down.  As a one-stop shop, parents know they can depend on Lisa and her crates to provide educational, fun, and engaging activities on a monthly basis.  Parents have ordered crates as a gift for a friend or family member, or play dates with friends, when a new sibling was born, and when their child was sick or injured and couldn't easily go to school or to their regular classes.  They also work well for parents seeking to provide their child's babysitter with activities to do.

Feel free to email her at Lisa@tinkeringtoddler.com with any questions or concerns!

What People Are Saying About Tinkering Toddler Crates

 These crates are amazing! My 3 year old daughter loved the crafts so much we had to do each one the same day we got it all. It is all so organized and so easy to follow with detailed instructions. It comes in the cutest box and was such an excited thing to receive in the mail! It also came with a super cute birthday card for my daughter so it was very personalized. I will be ordering more for friends birthday gifts! This is such a great idea and so fun to do along side your little ones! Even my 19 month old loved playing with it!
