Uncle Sam Memorial Day Craft Project

Uncle Sam Memorial Day Craft Project

In honor of Memorial Day coming up, Tyler and I created an Uncle Sam craft to celebrate.  This was lots of fun and involved more steps than some of our past crafts. At 4, Tyler definitely appreciated this. Plus, since this project involved painting, it gave us something to do while the paint dried. Check it out!

Easter Bunny Paper Plate Craft

Easter Bunny Paper Plate Craft

Last week Tyler and I created a cute little Easter bunny project with some basic craft supplies. While there was some controversy over whether a bow tie is an article of clothing or a food item (bow tie pasta), we really enjoyed the project overall.  This was another quick and fun project that we were able to do in the time between Hailey going to bed and Tyler's bedtime.

Leprechaun Hat Toddler Craft

Leprechaun Hat Toddler Craft

A week from today is St Patrick's Day so we were due for a new craft project! This week we created a Leprechaun Hat using popsicle sticks. We had a ton of fun plus Tyler informed me that the hat buckle looks like Gaston's shoes from Beauty and the Beast. So there's that. Check out how we created our craft!

Throwing a Wonka Party for Preschoolers 

Throwing a Wonka Party for Preschoolers 

This past weekend was Tyler's 4th birthday and the theme was Willy Wonka. This was Tyler's first party where he had school friends to invite. This meant a little more planning as far as food and activities, but overall it was so fun to put together. Best of all, the kids had a blast!

Heart Man Valentine's Day Craft

Heart Man Valentine's Day Craft

The last few nights, T has really been into creating.  The other night he painted a picture of himself with his friend Adele.  He also painted his friend Daniel with his dog.  With Valentine's Day just a few weeks away and with T enjoying being creative the past few evenings, we decided it was a good time to create a Valentine's Day project. This was a quick and easy little craft that we were able to complete in about 30 minutes. That means it fit right into the time between when Hailey goes to sleep and when T gets ready for bed. T had a lot of fun with this project especially with the gluing, as usual. Check out how we made heart man!

Paper Plate Christmas Tree Craft

Paper Plate Christmas Tree Craft

In case you haven't noticed by now, my son loves to make crafts involving paper plates. In fact, if he sees me grab a paper plate, he is more likely to think it is craft time than food time.  Therefore, this Christmas' craft project of course involves a paper plate. This project was a lot of fun and includes two of my toddler's favorite things: painting and using stickers. Check it out!

Pilgrim Hat Craft and Gratitude Banner

Pilgrim Hat Craft and Gratitude Banner

This week T has been a little under the weather, so we took it as an opportunity to do more sedentary, quiet activities. This week we made two projects: a pilgrim hat and a gratitude banner. These are two easy and fun projects. T is starting to use scissors in school so he was able to help with some of the cutting for these projects.
