We got creative this weekend and made Halloween ghost art with the munchkin's handprints. Isn't it cute? I love how small my son's hand still is and how much he enjoyed painting with me. At one point, while brushing green and purple paint on the canvas, he turned to me and said:...
The munchkin loves exploring all the different colors and types of yarn in my stash. He also gets a kick out of any activity that involves paint. So earlier this week, we decided to combine the two with a fun painting activity using yarn as the brushes.
A few days ago the munchkin and I made Gak and I may be revealing the extent of my nerdom here, but I thought it looked like ectoplasm. Doesn't it look like Slimer passed out on our kitchen table? Yea, I'm a Ghostbusters fan. :)
Some of our favorite activities have the simplest ingredients behind them. Shaving cream painting is one example. Iceberg animals is another. But seeing as it’s winter in Vermont and -8F outside, we needed something fun and easy to do inside today. The answer? Milk art.
We are expecting 12-16 inches of snow within the next 24 hours and to say the munchkin is excited would be an understatement. This morning he informed me of our complete itinerary: we're making smores in the fireplace and building a snowman family when it stops snowing. Then we...
You know what I love most about this activity? The end results are nothing like what I had in mind. I thought we were going to paint mini-pumpkins with glittery orange paint, then paint the stems a glittery green. Simple. Pretty. Done. But the munchkin had other ideas.
The munchkin got his first set of watercolor paints this week and I've been brainstorming ways to make water-coloring extra special for him. Then this morning it hit me: secret message painting! Doesn't that sound fun?
This is probably one of the easiest activities I've ever done with the munchkin. But you know what? It was a huge success! It kept him happily occupied for a good 45 minutes not once, not twice, but three times. (So far.)
If your toddler loves trains as much as mine does, chances are you're often on the lookout for new ways to encourage your little one's fascination. From train books and songs to puzzles and rhymes, I created a round-up of our favorite train things in honor of Amtrak's National...
The munchkin and I are loving this fun story about 10-year-old Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III's attempts to capture and train a dragon. I see all the books in this series in our near future. See more of our favorite chapter books »
