Always watch your words… and make sure your actions and words fit your facial expressions. Keep it positive and real. Talk to children with respect always!

Be Creative!


It’s time for show and tell once again !

This is a real fun upcycle I did using and old night stand.

It now is a wonderful play stove.

Be inspired! Get creating!

Build a snowman and your name

A very cute winter craft is making name snowmen. I made the circles before hand and cut out the rest of the shapes as well. When it was time for the kids to make their snowman they found the correct letters and built their snowman to spell their own name. They also had some fun painting with a scrub brush to make snowflakes on the picture as well.

Although when you have a one year old do this …. It kind of looks like the poor snowman melted hahaha

Easy Christmas craft for toddlers


002

Super easy craft to do with preschoolers!

I had premade strips of colourful paper ready and some triangles cut out of cardboard.

The children covered the triangles with glue, then they laid the strips of paper across the triangle.

They had fun looking at the different lengths of paper

Once dry I trimmed the excess paper away, taped a Popsicle stick to the bottom and stuck them into egg cartons that were covered with tinfoil.

Spin Art


Using a salad spinner makes very interesting designs.  This activity also encourages co-ordination, fine and large muscle development,

012  I cut the circles just the right size to fit the bottom of the spinner,

then we dropped tiny bits of watered down paint onto the paper, shut the lid and spun.

Making self portraits and learning our shapes at the same time .
