Thanks to pinterest I found this fun activity for our backyard.
Thanks to the internet we found a fun and easy way to make Valentines. Use a toilet paper roll, squish it into a heart shape, and stamp. The best part? The boys loved it!
Crash and Danger have started to really like coloring. They usually only do it for 5 minutes or so, sometimes a little bit longer. Danger discovered the joy of breaking crayons in half, so their Nana bought them some of these Crayola Twistables . The boys love them. I have a love/hate relationship with them. They are great because they are easy to color with and they can’t snap them in half. The problem, they are nice and soft which makes for a nice smooth application. It looks great on paper, but on the boys, eh not so much. I really don’t mind, I expect them to get messy, and it is sort of cute.
Can you believe it? My babies graduated from the baby room at church. They are now in the toddler room. Which means they are starting to do crafts, sit at a table and have snack, and listen (hopefully) to a story. Here are some pics of their first crafts at church, crowns.
Do you know how hard it is to get a picture of two toddlers wearing crowns on their heads? Anyway after I stopped taking pictures they started taking the foam stickers off and trying to eat them. Sigh, the crowns are now safely in the trash.
I heard about this deal over at Tot School and thought I would share with you. I was also in the midst of setting up affiliate links with amazon for another project I am working on (more on that later) and thought I would give them a test spin here. I promise I will not be bombarding you with links to buy stuff through me to make money! You can get the Scotch Laminator for $31.49 and 50 Laminating Pouches for $10.30 and then send in for a $20 mail in rebate. So a laminator and pouches for $21.79! I am finding with toddlers I am wanting to laminate a few things and recently had four sheet laminated at a local store and it was $1.75 a sheet! It’s probably cheaper at an office supply store but we don’t have one nearby. Thanks for letting me test out my links on you.
I am not a super creative person, but I do have dreams of making super cute crafts for/with the kids. So when I saw this pattern on etsy I knew I just had to make it for Abby. Michelle loves sushi and I thought it was a perfect gift for mom and daughter to play with together. I, of course, procrastinated until the last minute to do it, luckily I had my cute husband to do all the cutting (and even some of the sewing).
Here is the finished product:
It’s not perfect, but I am still happy with it and actually had fun doing it. (we also still need to do the tea cup and the sauce plate.) It has also inspired me to make more felt food for my guys.
