I know I say that every week is crazy in one way or another, but I feel like we’re finally getting out of the super-crazy season with the beginning of school, my birthday and the girl’s birthday all happening within a couple of weeks. After-school activities have started, giving me more time to work, and I’m getting caught up on projects and may just have time for some crafting again. Wouldn’t that be great?
If you missed it earlier this week, I’d love it if you checked out my post on making creatures out of pudding cups. Other than possibly the pudding (and you can use fruit cups or applesauce cups, too) you probably have everything you need for this snack craft in the house!
We’re going to get out first taste of fall weather this weekend here in Arkansas, so it’s time to start thinking about fall activities. We love being outside this time of year, so we’re definitely going to use some of these fall treasure hunt ideas from Edventures with Kids. (You can also check out a nature scavenger hunt I did with the girl last year.)
We’re a little past the busy toddler stage in our family, but this DIY toddler busy board from Hands on As We Grow is amazing. It has locks, bells, lights, squeaky toys, wooden letters in different colors with the child’s name Velcroed to the board, and more. how fun would this be to put together and to play with?
For older kids who love to tinker, this post on Rube Goldberg machines from Brain Power Boy is a great inspiration. Can you and your kid make a crazy machine to get a ball into a cup or turn off an alarm clock? And can you make it out of things you already have in the house? It would certainly be fun to try!
