It is funny how many little things I do in the name of "the scrapbook". (I haven't scrapbooked in years!) I try to track quotes, memories, take pictures of crafts, and experiences. To be honest, the majority of the experiences "documented" end up tainted by me trying to get a "perfectly candid shot". Anyways, The Birthday Questionaire was something that I spotted on Pinterest and decided I had to participate in. So I have included a print out for you guys to do at home, one with measurments for the OCD mom, and one for the slightly less anal! If I want to scrapbook the answers later, in a nicer, fancier format; please do! I intend to do so as well. It is just nice to have something that is easy to fill out and file for later so you don't have to rely on your memory! Also, stay tuned for the part 2 of this post- it will be a wishlist and friend list for the kids to fill out. A fun way to get them involved in the planning of their parties!
Despite the many tub toys that our household has aquired- I still seem to have a hard time getting my kids in the tub. So I was delighted when I found this awesome bath paint recipe on Pinterest! Making the paints was quite simple and is an activity on it's own; as the children had a blast helping with the measuring, mixing and making of the colours! Although, I must warn you guys- due to the use of food colouring, it can stain your kid's skin, so don't use close to family photos or special events!
I really love this craft because our fridge is stainless steel and, therefore, not magnetic. The kids love to display their creations and this is a fun, TIDY way to do so. All items were found at the dollar store with the exception of the deco- that was custom made at Uppercase Living in the "My Design Suite" portion of the site. What you need to do:
Rainbow Rice is great Sensory Play activity for PreSchool children! It is a flexible activity so let your kids have fun with it! Even my 8 year old and her friend were able to entertain themselves for hours on end by making up different types of games. Great games for Rainbow Rice include: Search and Find-where one person hides the marbles and the other person finds them in a certain amount of time, Playing Resturant- This is good to encourage measuring and scooping into different sized containers, Bug hunt or Dinosaur Dig for the little ones- where one or multiple kids can collect their Bug ect, the one with the most wins, and then of course just free play where the children just do as they will. Try switching up the tools in the bin to keep it interested. Good ideas are things from the kitchen, cars and backhoes, barbies, or anything that you can think of. To find out how to make your own Rainbow Rice, just read above for instructions.
I am a wife and a mother of 3. 5 if you include my asshole cats. But that is another story. Here I share my favorite crafts, printables and activities that can be done with children. This is probably the most active page of mine, as being a mother is full time and as much as I love cosmetics etc. Recording the videos is a challenge to say the least with 3 little ones running around!
