Baby Fun ~ Big Buttons


Clara is 9 months old and wants to do everything that her big sisters do.  She loved playing with our collection of  really big buttons.

BigButtonFun These REALLY BIG BUTTONS are a lot of fun for all ages!  We use them for sorting, patterns and now baby play.  Clara enjoyed exploring them.  She looked inside the container, picked up the buttons and especially liked dumping them all over the floor.  This is a great activity for developing fine motor skills and cause and effect relationships.

Valentine’s Day Cards


Love is in the air and we had so much fun making these cards for the girls to pass out to their friends at school!

IMG_6542When I saw these “I Love You to Pieces” valentines  I immediately thought of Juliette.  She loves cutting and is always creating a little scrap pile of cut pieces for no apparent reason.  This was perfect to put those cuttings to use for a real project.  I gave her pieces of pink, purple and red construction paper and had her make confetti out of it.  Then she glued the pieces on to the hearts like they were sparkles.  She had a blast!! 

 IMG_6544 I picked up these cute pencils for Emily to hand out, but wanted something else to go with them.  These printable mazes were so cute and the perfect way for her to include a sweet massage and her name.

Pasta Painting

I was cleaning out the pantry and found a box of expired lasagna noodles.  I felt bad throwing them out so we decided to try painting them instead, I figured at least we could put them to use before the tossed them!!

 The girls had a lot of fun painting piece after piece.  The ridges added a fun texture for them to work with.  They also loved how cool they looked when you held them up to the light.  It was like a stained glass window effect.
