Fun with Pipe Cleaners

A great idea for toddlers! 

I think my son sat in one spot for at least 30 minutes with only a strainer and pipe cleaners.  :) 

At 17 months it took a lot of concentration to get the pipe cleaner in one of the holes of the strainer but he DID it!  :)  I did have to do hand over hand a couple times but then he figured it out.   This activity is also an awesome fine motor skill.  We worked on the pincer grasp and holding the pipe cleaner at the end so it would be easier to put in the hole of the strainer.  

He also had a ton of fun simply waving the pipe cleaners.  He also seemed to really enjoy pulling the pipe cleaners out of the strainer.  

Shortly after Titus was done his sister came home from school and was very excited to play with them too.  Then it became a game of Selah putting the pipe cleaners in the strainer and Titus pulling them out.  


we did this last year and made spiders! thanks for sharing at the Sunday Showcase!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
