Hey DIYers! It’s Chelsea, back from my hangout at Lovely Indeed to show you an extra fun project I recently created for my niece’s first birthday. It’s perfect for any summer celebration, especially one with a little Mexican flavor. Today, we’re talking DIY pinatas! Here’s what you’ll need: some cardboard, an empty cereal box, tissue paper, masking tape, scissors, a glue stick, and pipe cleaners or thick twine.
Give your toddler their own cabinet to keep them busy in the kitchen. Anyone who has had a baby knows the many challenges a newborn can present. When the new baby is your second baby, you are faced with all those challenges again while simultaneously trying to meet the needs of an older sibling. Arming yourself with some “go-to” activities that promote independence for a toddler will be key for not only surviving, but actually enjoying those first days as a parent of two. 1.
Don't you LOVE it when your little one is over the moon about an activity you shared together?! I do!! This morning we made RAINBOW SLIME and Biscuit was beside herself with excitement. There are a few ways to make slime, however I found this recipe works best ~ 1 1/2 cups of CLEAR glue and 1 1/2 cups of liquid starch. The liquid starch we used was the brand STA-FLO, you can find it at your local grocery store with the laundry detergent or you can purchase on amazon.
I love doing fun things with my kids, but I don’t do stuff as often as I’d like because of time and the mess. The Lord knows I have enough messes to clean up as it is without purposefully adding to it! I look on Pinterest and see all those cute craft projects and ideas for kids. I pin that glitter project that’s momentarily caught my eye and for a fleeting moment, I contemplate actually attempting it. And then the realist in me takes over and I know it ain’t gonna happen. How many of you do the same?
I enjoy making this homemade play dough. My favorite part is creating the colors! The texture is wonderful. You can make several batches in different colors, package them in cute containers and use them for quick, handmade gifts for playmates or birthday parties.
Every kid loves a small space to call their own. I rounded up 25 of the most inspiring play tents for kids, many of which include tutorials for you to make your own.

Warm weather is already tapering off , rain has been pounding down in many areas but kids still need to move, burn off energy and have fun doing it! Over the years we’ve gathered many gross motor activities for preschoolers and all of these can be done rain or shine in your home. The Easy Balance Beam shown above is as simple as can be but offers a million possibilities . We’ve been pirates, played Simon Says on the beam, even played statue while standing on one leg. This Musical Hearts Game is a wonderful and fun way to incorporate listening, reading and shapes into a gross motor activity. We played this often last winter and can’t wait to include my daughter in on the fun now that she is running and jumping too.
A toddler paints bubble wrap in Isis Art Studio class. In early January an article in the New York Times reinforced what early childhood educators have known for years– play is important . This 2007 report from the American Academy of Pediatrics documents that play promotes not only behavioral development but brain growth as well.
For a FUN time, make up a bunch of sponge bombs by cutting up ordinary household sponges into thirds, and wrapping an “ouchless” hair elastic around them…. Tip — Here is a quick video tutorial to demo how QUICK & easy these are to make! Grab a friend and a couple of buckets — each person kneels in front of a bucket filled to the top with water. The object of the game is to hurl the sponge bombs into each other’s buckets! You WILL get wet!!!
