Toddler shaken hearts

Valentine’s Day Art: Shaken Painted Hearts

We’re kicking off with some Valentine’s Day art for this fun holiday with some shaken painted hearts, an idea I got from Toddler Approved! […]

Top 10 Indoor Activities for Toddlers

These are my top 10 indoor activities that I’ve done with my kids when they were toddlers. Since its winter time, I gotta have a handful of these up my sleeve. Indoor activities are great to have on hand for any age this time of year. But toddlers seem to especially get antsy and need […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Toddler Craft: Wrapping Paper Stocking

This is another activity that I did a couple of years ago with Henry after Christmas with wrapping paper scraps. The idea for the activity came from No Time For Flash Cards, once again.   After the holidays, I always have a ton of wrapping paper scraps just lying around. Either from wrapping presents, or from […]

Tape Resist Candy Cane Painting

The boys made gorgeous candy canes together. Each taking a part in the creating process. I’m not sure if its good to have one of my boys do one part of a project, and the other one finish it… but it seems to work well for my boys, and I like that I end up […]
