Detta var egentligen tänkt som julklapp till L, men den hann inte bli färdig. Men nu är den äntligen klar! En aktivitetstavla med massor av knappar, bultar, beslag och roliga delar. L har redan bra finmotorik, och nu kan han träna ännu mer på att öppna och stänga, skruva och pricka rätt. Skivan är en 20 mm byggplywood, som är bra att skruva i, den är lackad en gång. An activityboard for L that did not get ready for Christmas, but now it is! The board is 20 mm cheap plywood, and the fittings are found in the stash, or bought at the hardware store, the onoff switches came from a electronic store.

Easy Sticker Snow Globe Craft | The Outlaw Mom (TM) Blog - Art, Learning & Play Activities for Kids + Creative DIY InspirationThe Outlaw Mom (TM) Blog – Art, Learning & Play Activities for Kids + Creative DIY Inspiration I’ve been on a wonky posting schedule lately trying to juggle a sick family, my day job, and on and on, but I’m back today with a fun, easy DIY winter-themed craft for kids as part of the Winter Wonderland Blog Hop presented by the fabulous Adrienne of The Iowa Farmer’s Wife: Mason Jar Snow Globes! This craft is super simple. Instead of worrying about having the right size figurine or modeling clay to stick down your props or finding a glue that works in water – all you need to do is press on some stickers! Materials A mason jar (or any jar with a good seal will do)Glitter paillettes (you can also use fake snow or sequins or regular glitter)Plastic 3-D StickersWaterGlycerin (vegetable oil works, too!) Step 1 Open your jar and press on your stickers. If you want your “globe” to mainly rest on the bottom instead of the lid, keep that in mind when placing your stickers. Step 2 Fill the jar up almost to the top with water. Step 3 Then add in a drop or two of vegetable oil. Step 4 Step 5

Easter Crafting I've been spending Fridays with Grandma, and it's been fun to have projects to work on. We've stamped cards, painted with watercolor, filled beanbags, decorated cookies, and done lots and lots of jigsaw puzzles. I had been searching for an Easter project that we could make and send out to the great grandkids - these little sock bunnies from Family Fun were just our speed. Start with a toddler sock, fill with dried beans, tie off the top with a rubber band. Cut the top into ear shapes (cut a "v" with rounded tops), tie a bow around the neck. Super cute! All packaged up and ready to go! And in other cute news ... Happy Easter! Update: Found a pic of Clark's bunny and house.
