Isla is in that stage where she loves to help out with anything and everything. Today she used her @cocovillage Learning Tower and baked oatmeal apple cookies “all by herself”. She felt like such a big girl being able to reach everything on her own. Independence is so important at this age so I love that I am able to give Isla the freedom to explore her new found independence and master the skills that come along with it. The Learning Tower is perfect for helping out in the kitchen with cooking and chores, as well as eating quick snacks (one of Isla's favorites), reaching light switches, the activities are truly endless.
