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 […]

Christmas Tree & Presents Matching Game

Christmas Tree & Presents Matching

  I did this activity a couple years ago at Christmas with Henry. I found it on No Time for Flash Cards. I reused some scrap wrapping paper pieces and cut out a Christmas tree shape in four different wrapping paper patterns. I glued these to a large piece of paper in a row. I also […]

It’s Playtime! Love the Earth

Upcycling isn’t new to us in this house at all. We save almost anything that comes through this door in the hopes to somehow use it in an upcoming activity [even though it drives my husband insane]. But a lot has come in handy and plus it shows the boys how to reuse many common […]

Fly a [Homemade and Recycled] Kite!

Fly a kite today!  Run in the backyard or take it to the park. All you need it some string, a plastic grocery bag [one preferably without holes, which may or may not be hard to find], and a rubberband for extra assurance that it won’t fly away. I tied string to both handles of the […]

Cracker or Cereal Box and Counting Number Puzzles (1)

Two for One: Cracker Box & Number Puzzles

I’ve been on the hunt for some really simple activities that I can throw together on a whim. This ‘cereal box’ puzzle is one of them. I actually didn’t happen to have a cereal boxes in the recycling bin, so I opted for a cracker box. [That’s what’s awesome about this, you can use whatever […]

Toddler Activity: Playing with Cups

I drew a blank. I didn’t know what to have George do. He was getting into the laundry while I was folding it. I was about to go nuts. I needed something for him to do. I drew a blank, though. What can a toddler do? Duh. I just made a list of 50 activities […]

Mother's Day Yarn Wrapped Vase Craft for Kids

Mother’s Day Craft: Yarn Wrapped Vase

I did a little googling for some “vase crafts” and found some beautiful yarn wrapped vases, there’s a cool rainbow vase from Kaboose. I didn’t expect there to be a pattern, or perfectly aligned yarn wrapped around the jar. […]

Toddler Activity Punch Game

Energetic Activity: Letter Sound Punch Game

I laugh when I think of this game we did. It was on a whim, and of course, it was made for George, but ended up making it for Henry because he was more interested in it. [It always seems to go that way...] This is an activity that takes some movement [Yay! Gross Motor […]
