Kindergarten Toolkit

Megan SandersonComment

Our little ones are getting ready for Kindergarten and we’ve finally found the perfect tool to get them prepared. The Kindergarten Toolkit is a teaching curriculum for parents, grandparents or teachers to use with children ages 2 thru 6.

It fully prepares your child for Kindergarten and our kids have already learned so much after only a few days of using it. It helps build a basic foundation of reading, writing and math skills and the lessons are simple and written in a way that any parent can be a "teacher" to their child. Build your child's confidence and help them be prepared to excel as they embark on their educational journey.

Not only are their pieces super adorable, their fabric feels just about as soft as it gets.

Madly Wish is a children's bedding brand that creates luxury linens for your little ones.  They specialize in timeless, heirloom-quality pieces that will be cherished for years to come. We've seen so many blanket and bedding brands over the years and honestly we were blown away with the quality of these pieces. Every single detail is just amazing and we will proudly display these in our home. 

In 2012, Madly Wish began with only $28 in fabric and a Pinterest tutorial.  From that first stitch, they have always been about the little ones.

We are all about sweet florals and their heirloom blankets feature gorgeous prints like the one seen here from Rifle Paper Co. And trust us, these blankets are even more amazing in person. Their receiving blankets are just as luxurious and are a timeless accent to any nursery.

Life should be full of little luxuries like the collection from Madly Wish. It makes doing the simple and ordinary things a bit more magical! Shop the entire collection here and use code MINI for 15% off!

NataNico's sheets boast a 200 thread count and are so soft and comfy. Bonus- each sheet comes in a cute draw string bag!
