Valentine Window of Toddler Painted Hearts

I love it when the kids make something to decorate our windows, and a Valentine window just had to be done! Since George has been asking non-stop to paint more and more hearts, I dug out some heart shaped paper doilies that I had bought a couple of years ago after Valentine’s Day. We started […]

LETTER-BRACELET-002

Match Upper & Lowercase Letters Bracelet

Henry matched upper and lowercase letters to make a bracelet for Valentine’s Day using letter beads and Valentine’s Day words. He often comes home from school with a bracelet that he made. He is always so incredibly proud of it, and wears it for days. It keeps it on his nightstand at night. And won’t […]

Sponge Art Painting for Valentine’s Day

After a round of cookie cutter painting, George was still going strong and was in the mood to paint, so we moved onto sponge art for Valentine’s Day! So simple to do too! Sponge art is versatile [literally any shape can be made] and its a fun sensory activity that results in a pretty piece of […]

Cookie Cutter Painting for Valentine’s Day

A simple way to get creative for Valentine’s Day, especially great for toddlers, is with a heart shaped cookie cutter painting activity! It can get a bit messy, but no messier than any painting activity really!   I grabbed these heart shaped cookie cutters on clearance last year after Valentine’s Day just for this purpose! […]

Sensory Activity with Corn Meal to Explore

A simple sensory activity that all kids will enjoy. Corn meal is a wonderful sensory material for kids to explore!     Keeping George busy and entertained while Henry is at school each morning has become interesting. It’s amazing to see how much he has grown just in the last couple of months intellectually. Even […]

Tin can snowman wind chime

Snowman Craft from Tin Cans!

This snowman craft [that's also a wind chime] was so fun. I’ve had this idea in my the entire fall and couldn’t wait to have the time to do it with the boys! Things started rocky, for sure, but I do love the end result. It started out that I didn’t have any white paint. […]

Icy Paint

Salt Paint for Toddlers: An Icy Winter Scene

Toddlers will love to make an icy painting scene using salt paint! This sensory activity came about after an epic “Craft Fail” of trying to frost my windows with Epsom Salt. I had an entire box of it leftover and wasn’t sure what to do with it. I did find one thing to do with it […]

Box Train made from Cardboard Boxes

A box train got made over the holidays with all the packaging and cardboard boxes! This year I did almost all [probably 98%!] of my Christmas shopping online, so boxes were in plenty this year. I didn’t let the boys play with them until all the Christmas wrapping was finished to make sure I had […]

Christmas Sparkle Cloud Dough

Cloud dough is awesome! I can’t believe its taken me this long to make it with the boys! If you have not made cloud dough yet, it’s a lot like the texture of brown sugar. Crumbly and loose, but can be compacted together too!   And its simple to make too! To make cloud dough, […]

Marshmallow Snowman Craft

So its been a little snowy outside and Henry has yet to actually get out in it and PLAY. He’s been outside, but it’s usually to help Dad shovel the driveway. And he doesn’t last too long. He’s a smart boy – he knows he’s cold and he just comes inside. Anyhow – so I […]
