Halloween and Thanksgiving are quickly approaching, so I decided to get my youngest son to help me make some cute pumpkin table decorations using construction paper. I laid newspaper down on the kitchen table so that my youngest son wouldn’t get glue all over the table. I keep a stash of craft and supplies in my …Continue

This was going to be a post about our experience painting with tennis balls. But there's not much to say, because we never got very far.
I put some paint on a paper plate and Kay rolled the tennis ball in it, then bounced it hard onto the paper I'd placed on the ground. She bounced it one more time, then said, "It makes an ugly design." Then, "Can I paint with my feet?" Does all of our painting projects have to devolve into body painting? Apparently. …

I found some leftover colored sand, and I left it up to Kay to decide what to do with it. She had an answer right away, "We could put glue on the paper and make pictures." Okay, works for me. I got the glue and paper, she carried the sand and we brought everything outside. (This definitely seemed like one of those 'outdoor crafts.') She started by mixing all the colors together, making a less-than-attractive combination, but the glitter that was also included at least made it sparkly. She…Continue

My 4 year old is still fighting his fever, my 6 year old is full of energy and I'm fighting a cough, sore throat and swollen glands. There were a few St Patty's Day events I wanted to check out today, but from the neck up, I don't feel well at all. Usually, I would type in my symptoms, but I don't event want to know what a Google search would say could be wrong with me (I'm staying away from WebMD). Damn it! Being sick really…Continue

One of the things I miss most about working in a first grade classroom is the arts and crafts projects. There’s nothing quite like a child’s piece of artwork to bring a smile to the face of a teacher or parent. Whether we were celebrating a holiday like Halloween or Christmas or creating a memorable display for Veteran’s Day or President’s Day, arts and crafts creations were wildly popular with the kids. We traced, colored, cut and glued our way through the entire school year and had a…Continue

Maybe it was sheer bravado, maybe it was the fact that I collaborated with a fellow blogger last week whose blog is all about DIY and Pinterest inspiration, but when 36 Year Old had to go away for one day on the weekend I was about to blow 3 Year Old’s mind with a series of well-intentioned yet poorly executed crafts, a house specialty.
I am not a crafty person. In fact, I think I am magnificently bad at crafts. It probably…Continue

When Little Mr A was a few months old I attended a variety of sessions at my local Sure Start centre. One of these sessions showed us how to make 'treasure baskets'. If you've never heard of this before it is basically a box full of everyday, non-toy items for your child to explore and play with. They are meant to be put out occasionally for baby and parent to play with together and should not be left for baby to play with on their own as it may contain items that would not be safe if…Continue

Finger painting is something that my kids have always enjoyed. However, just like my play-doh post,finger paints don't last very long in a house with 3 kids. Colors get mixed and you'd be surprised how fast they run out. I've been looking for recipes that are easy to put together. I love the idea of homemade things, especially when it…Continue
