From the Nanny’s P.O.V

A sneak peak into what a Nanny does and gets out of her day to day from a local Long Island Nannies point of view.

Hi all, I’m Lucy, I have always loved working with children. I started babysitting at 13 years old around my neighborhood and, as soon as, I was old enough I applied and started working at a daycare. I was the toddler teacher for over 10 years. There wasn’t a day that i didn’t love to walk through those doors and see my babies. Year after year I got to teach, love and be a constant person in these kids lives. After time I decided I need something more and that’s when I decided to become a Nanny.

DIY Pumpkin Playdough

I love to use items I already have in my pantry to make something the kids can play with and that will be a great sensory activity. It is Fall and we love the smell of pumpkin. I tried a few recipes and this recipe worked best to make a pumpkin play dough.

The play dough does not store well in a Ziploc container wrapped in parchment paper. Just one day later it was not good anymore. But, the initial one day of play was amazing and smelled amazing.
