Toddler Tuesday: Washing Dishes

Any mother of little ones will tell you that 1) it doesn’t take much to amuse them, and 2) they like your things better than their things.  Case in point: my kids love to wash dishes.  They rush to grab rags, play with bubbles, scoop, pour, scrub, sort, and rinse whatever is in the sink.  […]

Toddler Tuesday: Legos

When my husband was cleaning out his office this past winter, he stumbled on a box marked “Kids Toys.”  He opened it up to find hundreds of Legos inside.  He brought them home, and our kids have loved playing with them ever since.  We keep them in the garage, and then when we want to […]

Toddler Tuesday: Leaf Rubbings

This past autumn I spotted a Pin of “Leaf Rubbing” on Pinterest.  Although we did this activity in November, it also makes a great summer activity! I remembered that my mom did leaf rubbings with us when we we were kids, so I decided to give it a try. I think this activity would be […]

Pinterest Inspired: Frugal Bathtime Fun

Recently I spotted this Pin on Pinterest, and decided to try it with the kids.  We filled our ice cub trays with water and then added a drop of food coloring.  That night, we added the multi-colored cubes to their warm bath.  The cubes didn’t last for long, but the kids had fun chasing and […]

Morning & Nighttime To Do Charts for Kids

With Brad out of town for the last week, today I desperately needed to do some grocery shopping.  I had been putting it off though, because who really wants to go shopping with a 3 year old, a 2 year old, and a newborn in tow?  Today we bravely conquered not only WinCo, but the […]

Toddler Tuesday: Autumn Window Collage

When I saw this Autumn Window Collage over at Frugal Family Fun (now Inner Child Fun) I just knew I had to try it with my kids! First I found some salvaged tissue paper from last year’s Christmas gifts and Christmas sales.  I chose 3 colors/patterns that reminded my of fall: red, yellow, and a […]

Toddler Tuesday: 3 Jack-O-Lantern Crafts for Halloween

I know, I know.  It’s a little late for Jack-O-Lanterns by now!  However, October was a busy month for us, and I never got to share some of the small crafts I did with Naomi for Halloween. 1. Coffee-Can Jack-O-Lantern: Honestly, Naomi didn’t get to help much with this one.  I wrapped a coffee can […]

Toddler Tuesday: Butcher Paper Drawing

Naomi is very excited that she is now in the “Big Girls’ Class” for Sunday School.  Since September 2, the kids at church have all moved up a level.  This Sunday Naomi was doubly thrilled when the teacher gave her a giant sheet of butcher paper to bring home.  They had already drawn flowers on […]

Toddler Tuesday: California State Railroad Museum

On August 20, we packed up our kids for a big adventure!  We drove down to Sacramento in hopes of riding the train that departs from the California State Railroad Museum.  I had heard about the train and train museum from my friend BeccaG! Naomi brought two of her favorite books along for ride, The […]

Toddler Tuesday: Toothpicks & Marshmellows

Welcome back to Toddler Tuesdays!  I haven’t had a lot of toddler projects to talk about over the summer months.  As long as the weather is bearable, we try to get outside to play and do fewer indoor projects together.  Brad tells me that Toddler Tuesdays are his favorite part of my blog though, so […]
