Toddler nose picking...gag gag gag

Hey parents I really want to know what you did to convince your child to not pick their nose and eat it... GAG!!!

Funny thing is my husband can handle throw up and dirty diapers but if he sees snot or boogers he is gagging.  It is quite humorous.  Well, as you can imagine with a 3 year old they are going to be curious and pick.  Selah has been picking her nose for a few months now and eating them.

I have explained how they can make you sick, how they are gross, ignored it so she has no attention from it, but she continues to do it.  In fact if I tell her no she hides her face with one hand and uses the other hand to finish the job.


We have read the book "No David" several times and one of the lines in the book says "No David" well I added on the page with him picking his nose is "thats gross."  Selah and I have read that book so much that she can now read it to me.  I was hoping she would realize it was gross, but it seems she keeps doing it.

So parents how did you get your kid to kick this nasty habit in the butt!  Cause I am going crazy with this one... it is really just one of those things that gives me a chill in my back.

I agree that it is gross; we smacked our sons hands whenever we caught his fingers in his nose. We would also make him wash his hands right away. He likes washing his hands, but doesn't always like being interrupted if he is doing something he enjoys. This has all worked for the most part, but our oldest is 5yo now and we still catch him picking boogers, although we'll have him gargle some watered down Listerine if we catch him eating them.
We have smacked her hands too and made her wash them! She also enjoys washing her hands!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
