A craft crazed lady who loves empowering children to learn and grow while having fun!

Hi! My name is Rachel and I love to create. I started myraecreations ( in 2015 without a lot of focus, I simply loved creating things and wanted to share my creations with people. Since then I have found my passion in creating learning toys and activities for children.

All of my creations are carefully designed with your child in mind. They are all soft, fabric/felt toys, perfect for at home, when you're out around town or travelling. Each listing explains how the toy can contribute to your child's development and some fun ideas on how to maximize the toys potential.

My activities for children are meant to encourage imagination, quiet play and develop their motor skills and independence. I am a strong believer in limiting screen time and empowering children to entertain themselves and be creative. My background includes ABA therapy and respite with preschool aged children living with different challenges such as Autism Spectrum Disorder and I am a qualified Montessori Preschool Teacher. I also have an undergraduate degree is Psychology. From my experience in these fields, as well as being a mother of 3 young boys, I have seen first hand the benefits of toys and activities like the ones I make and sell in my shop. I hope you find something that you or a child you know can enjoy and learn from!

For more great ideas on DIY toys and fun learning activities you can do with your child, visit my blog at our busy world children are often handed a phone or tablet to entertain themselves with, although this is fine in moderation, my shop and blog are here to help you come up with creative ideas in empowering your child to be responsible for entertaining themselves, without technology. Studies show that quiet time can raise your child's confidence, help them perform better in a classroom setting, encourage independence, develop problem solving skills and much, much more!! Let me help you empower your child!
