Kids at Play

Have you read my post, "One Awesome Daddy."  My husband is a man who can do anything, fix anything, build anything, solve any problem.  He just figures a way out no matter what the task might be.  Having a husband like this makes my life as a mommy even more fun.  I find projects for him make or build all the time, now he may not have time all the time but in one weekend he was able to build my daughters loft bed and put in a wood laminate floor in our house.  :) When we make the time he is very productive.  :) 

With summer fast approaching I have so many ideas on what projects I really want to have him and I complete.   The newest idea that I was browsing is Wood Playhouses!!!  They are so adorable!!  I am unsure of the timeline to build some of these fancy mini houses but if I had one of these houses as a child I would have been in heaven!  The time it would take my hubby to build a mini house would probably make us just want to purchase one.  Then I also have to factor in our winters and how to keep the playhouse safe during winter months.   

I remember one of my best friends grandma lived across the street from us and she had a rental unit up stairs and when it was vacant I remember my friend and I played house all afternoon in a small apartment unit.  We wished she would not rent it out but leave it as a playhouse for us.  I did not understand that she needed the income from the rental unit, innocent mind of a child.  

Do you have any projects you would like to create in your near future?  Do you use Pintrest and have so many pins you never now what project you want to do next?

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!
