What is Happy Tot Shelf?
In a nutshell, Happy Tot Shelf is our themed learning shelf that I create for my children each month.
We are all about interest-led, theme based DIY home learning here.
Each theme is chosen based on my children's current interests. I believe the best way to learn anything and everything is through our interests.

What is my goal for Happy Tot Shelf?
To help fellow parents create a HTS home learning lifestyle - one where children are free to explore their interests, stay curious about the world and always find joy in learning.
Here's the most important thing to remember: EVERY child loves to learn.
But how do we keep this love of learning in our children?
Everyday, I'm discovering answers to this question and sharing them with like-minded parents here on Happy Tot Shelf.
Our DIY Approach
Most of the learning activities on our shelves are home made with everyday items/trash! Meaningful hands-on activities don't have to cost a bomb.
