The best job in the world

Our Director of Play and Founder Traci Costa recently shared this message in our monthly Beans Bulletin. It was a message I can so relate to, as I’ve been there – in a job that I was miserable in for far too long. I’m so fortunate to now be doing something that I love! Owning my own business as a Play Stylist brings me so much joy. Read Traci’s message about we can have it all;  a job we love, a family too, and the best working environment in the world :

message from traci“How many of you had dreaded going to a job, have cringed when the alarm goes off, felt sad to miss out on an important event in your Beans lives. Or maybe you have a job that you love, but want something to channel your inner entrepreneur, a creative or social outlet, to be part of your community, to make something yours.

At some point, we have all been there. Paid our dues, put in our time for someone else, learned our lessons, worked hard, had a boss that didn’t treat people right. I have been there. It is one of the reasons I am so passionate about creating a working opportunity for women, and particularly for mothers. Why can’t work be fun, why can’t we make a difference, why can’t we embrace the people, create goals, achieve them in business and personally. Why can’t we be a stand for the best work environments for mothers, at the Playground or by creating self employment opportunities for women and mothers everywhere.

So I say it again, find what you do, and it will never feel like a day of work ever……create your own destiny, be your own boss, join a family that cares. Peekaboo Beans cares. I care.

So here I am today, asking you to help make a difference in the world, with me. Together. Let’s be the change. Lets:

  • Be a reminder everyday to give children space, time and freedom to find themselves, to find their strengths, weaknesses, and to fall down and get back up. Play is their work. Play is what children do when we stop telling them what to do, where to be, or who to be with.
  • Be a stand for a quality product – by choosing a Company that respects our customer’s money and values that they want to spend their hard earned dollars on our product. A Company that thinks about the way children move, jump, bend, run, skip, and play, but also fosters independence.  A Company that believes in children and thinks about what is best for them.  A Company that puts family first.  A product that is quality and not consumable.  Produced with love and care.
  • Be a stand for creating the best working environments that fosters people, values, and gives back and is socially responsible.

We can have all this, we can do all this. All we have to do is share our story, share our passion. All we have to do is believe. But we have to do this together. One vine. Standing together through thick and thin. I will continue to spread the joy, to be a stand for our product and be a stand for my Beans and yours.

In love and play,

Traci

Exploring the world through play and adventures

I love creating ‘experiences’ for my children, and making that magic of childhood happen for them. I’m often inspired by other bloggers who share the amazing things they do for their kids. My friend Andrea from A Peek inside the fishbowl sets the bar high when it comes to creating those experiences. I’ll never forget the time she created a tempoary forest in her backyard out of digarded Christmas trees.

When I read about what Fan, a Toronto mom and blogger was doing to help her son develop his strengths and talents through play, I was awestruck. She chronicles the adventures she has out and about in big ol’ Toronto with her son Teddy on her blog Teddy Out-Ready. I’m really excited to share this post she wrote about she is helping Teddy Exploring the world through play and adventures!

Exploring the world through play and adventures
By Fan R.

Being a good first time mom is very difficult task that brings a lot of joy and even more responsibility. As soon as our son Teddy turned 8 months we started exposing him to different events and shows which we have so many in our megalopolis. Of course, we targeted only toddler friendly activities that can help us to learn more about our son and develop him physically and mentally the best way we can.

We created a global chart of milestones that we could achieve for a year and underlined the activities that can help us to do that. It is not written in stone and it all depends on his own abilities and desires to accomplish them, we just want to give him the opportunity to explore and find his strengths and talents. We began creating a weekly activity plan which we call adventures. Since we take a lot of pictures and videos, we decided to start blogging and post reports about Teddy’s adventures on Teddy Out-Ready.

The easiest way to reach a toddler’s heart is through play and that is what our little adventures is all about.

We decided to attend one big event every week, with the remaining days filled with routine and fun activities that Teddy loves to do. We try to balance indoor and outdoor activities, since nothing can be more beneficial for a toddler’s health than using the playground to exercise, breathe fresh air and play all at the same time.

Currently Teddy goes to MyGym twice a week. He enjoys bars, obstacle courses, balance beams, slides, ladders, ball pool and trampolines. Day 1 is a more structured class with games, gymnastic stations, separation time and puppet show. Day 2 is open play to dash around and have fun. Teddy loves to go to the swimming pool and we try and take him twice a week, the first day in Parent & Tot 3 class with instructor and second one is recreational swim to enjoy and play.

Once a week, Teddy attends art class at 4Cats Art Studio where he concentrates on painting a winter landscape– it is going to take up to six classes to complete the final painting.

The big event this week – we are going to see the Lorax in Imax3D! Teddy played with Lorax himself during Kids-Fest and the Outdoor Adventures Show and it was very exciting to finally see him in the theatre.

Here is Teddy’s sample schedule for the week:

Monday
AM: Playground at Community Centre
PM: Heading to MyGym Open Play for dance, games, gymnastics and just having fun

Tuesday
