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. Beslagen har jag samlat ihop av sådant vi hade, hittat och köpt till i verktygshandeln, onoff knapparna köpte jag i en elektronikbutik. 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.

Build a Flip Down Wall Art Desk This one has been a looooong time in the making. I first came up with the ideas of a wall mounted desk last Christmas when I thought having a fold down wrapping station with rolls of wrapping paper and ribbon all neatly lined up would be a perfect spot to wrap gifts. But after considering the weight and size of gifts, I decided to scrap the idea and went with the tool box gift wrap station. Building presents makes for large heavy gifts - you know what I'm talking about.

How to Roast Vegetables Choosing Your Vegetables Some vegetables especially benefit from roasting, such as onions, potatoes, carrots, and other hearty root vegetables, but most vegetables will work. Green beans, broccoli, and other green-hue vegetables are less suited for roasting because they tend to turn olive green, and green beans shrivel before becoming tender. A real benefit to roasting is the ability to cook a combination of colorful vegetables, resulting in a full-flavor side dish or meatless entree. Use this chart of favorite roasting vegetables as a guide. Alphabet board This is what I have come up with since our fridge isn't magnetic. The kids LOVE IT! (yes, my kids are naked AGAIN). I got an alphabet poster for a teaching store and used rubber cement to paste it to the metal. The oil pan had a grease coating on it which came off with SimpleGreen. I didn't want to put (or try to put a hole in it for hanging) a hole in it so I use the 3M picture hanging velcro.

Sticky Window Art The other night I saw these two great activities while Blog hopping (Time For Play and Mom Tried It) and my brain kind of mashed them both together and we ended up with this sticky window activity (sorry to put 'mashed' and 'brain' in the same sentence but it's an accurate description, trust me).I was pretty sure Bubble would be into it but I didnt anticipate how much. She was still playing with it for almost an hour after I'd lost interest and wandered away, and made me promise about a thousand times (I wish I was exaggerating!) before she went to bed that I wouldn't take it down. I think I'll leave it up until the sticky is gone because there are countless possibilities with this activity. * clear contact* scissors* sticky tape* a window* anything you like to decorate with(we used coloured matchsticks, bottle tops and pattypans)

Dinosaur eggs erupting bath fun Jake and Cate have really been into the dinosaur play, so I made them a fun erupting dinosaur bath for them to play in. I put together some dinosaur eggs with dinosaurs in them for them to erupt in the bath along with some volcano play. You can also do this fun activity in a Dinosaur sensory bin as well. We did the bath cause Jake asked if they could do a volcano/dinosaur bath.
