Paper Plate Santa

A while back we made these cute paper plate Santa that my girls had fun making while I was busy in the kitchen I like crafts that they can do on their own or with a little help. It lets them feel like big girls and gives them the confidence to try to do harder crafts on their own before asking for my help.

Salt Dough Holiday Ornaments

Last week on Thanksgiving my mother in law was cleaning out things that she no longer needed or used and I seen these two beautiful boxes that sparked my imagination. I was tossing everything out the boxes when my 11-year-old point out some nail polishes and told me not to toss them. We kept them along with a few eye shadows and yesterday we used them for a project. We made some Salt dough holiday ornaments for our tree.

Candy Cane Oobleck: Toddler Sensory Play

Happy Monday guys! Today I want to share with you some messy fun that my toddler and I had. We enjoy a little toddler sensory play, especially when it’s messy like this was. (On her level)

My toddler has a problem with getting messy, but she always wants to play in the messes that my preschooler and I make. I usually give her a spoon or something to help her play with us, and that is just fine for her, but this time I really wanted her to touch and feel what we were playing with. So in order to have her touch I had her aid in preparing the mess that we were going to be playing with, in hopes that she would finally get the need to touch.
