Previous Projects (Kid Stuff)

I have hundreds, maybe thousands of activities for my kids pinned. I have only done a few, but have decided to set aside time each day to do something off one of the lists.

I saved many different lids from plastic containers and put them in a cute wipes container. Unfortunately, my 10 month old just discovered it and put one of the smaller ones in his mouth and gagged/choked. My husband threw all the tops away, but I read later in some of the comments that you can use baby food jar tops. I have many of those, so I've started saving those to try. He likes to put things in the slots, so that should work much better!

I don't have a fabric scissors, and I didn't make a pattern or use much planning at all, but my daughter loved decorating her own tree. I'm not sure of the best way to make it stick to the wall. The packaging tape I used didn't work for long. Here are some pictures from my attempt...






Threading Noodles

I just grabbed a bunch of random items and she had fun sorting them and filling the tins. 



Cloud Dough
Cloud Dough = flour + baby oil. Like moon dough only very cheap to make. 8 cups flour, 1 cup baby oil.

I noticed that a lot of the sensory activities looked messy, so I decided to just get over it and let her have fun and play. We made this with 2 cups of flour and 1/4 cup baby oil and it kept us busy for a good chunk of the morning! It was easier to clean up than I expected. Didn't make a paste like water and flour does. Here are some of our creations....





We made bowling balls and pins, which wasn't too easy but she liked it.
