As a mom of four the pressure is on to be on my A game when it comes to toddler essentials. I am setting the bar high to make sure that my girl earns an A+ as she starts becoming more and more independent. As they say it’s never to early to start learning those life skills. I’m sharing toddler essentials to help your baby eat independently and jump into early reading.
Eating Essentials for Toddlers
Milestones are fast and furious for babies. One of my most favorite milestones is when feeding goes from bottles to table foods. Of course the greatest milestone is also the messiest. The Marcus & Marcus 6 Piece Feeding Set makes feeding time a lot less messy and fun.

Marcus & Marcus is a smart and functional product label for adults, babies and young children. Re-imagine the chaos of parenting through the whimsical lens of our wacky animals.
Marcus & Marcus feeding sets come in Pokey the Pig, Lola the Giraffe, Ollie the Elephant and Willo the Whale. We received the Lola the Giraffe Marcus & Marcus 6 Piece Feeding Set that takes babies from their very first bite and stays with them forever.

Feeding time is a breeze when you have these nifty pieces. My daughter has a clean surface she can eat on and all the essentials to practice her meal time routine.
Early Reading Essentials
Letter recognition is the first thing you need to know to put those cognitive skills to work. The key is to make learning to read a part of your everyday by finding clever and fun ways to teach those skills during play time.

You can use the acorns to play a matching game, and match up the uppercase and lowercase letters. Play hide-and-seek by finding the object the has the letter sound of the acorn and place or remove the object that fits inside. The colors of the objects correspond to letters on the acorns. Practice making words, learning ABCs, beginning sounds, and more with this visual and tactile activity set.

I love the Alphabet Acorn set, it’s an essential part of our plan to engage my toddler so that she learns all about the alphabet. As my son embarks on going into first grade we are perfecting his talent. We spent the entire afternoon sounding and spelling out. Making words with the acorns and discovering that some words aren’t always spelled the way they sound. I highly recommend the acorn activity set, it lights up your little ones the minute they start playing.
