Natalie is the definition of busy these days. And I'm pretty positive she started getting bored of all of her toys about 3 months ago. I try to entertain her, but I'm not always great at finding things to do (and sometimes I just want to sit and let her play). So I attempted to make a busy board/activity board/discovery board/whatever you want to call it. Everything we didn't already have came from the Dollar Tree or Walmart. (Not all of this stuff is necessarily ''baby friendly'' but I…

It Feels...

This is another 5-senses activity. We did 10 different materials, ranging from feathers to sandpaper and everything in between. We had the kids feel each piece of material and then had them glue them onto the hands. We asked the kids to describe the material and what if felt like to them. I LOVE the answers that we got from some of the kids. My own little girl, had some that made me crack up. The sandpaper felt like Poppa's face, the fake leather felt like a couch and one of them felt like…

Texture boards

I created these sensory boards out of dollar store cutting boards and common objects from the craft cupboard and around the house. There is sand paper - kitchen scrubbies - car wash mits - placemats - terrycloth towelling - fun fur etc. The edging is made from colourful shoelaces and each item is glued down with tacky glue - I find it stronger than hot glue - it just had to dry for a couple of days before use. The children really seem to enjoy them! We shared this Idea here! :)

Playing Inside

With the warmer temperatures the past few days, it's really mucky out. The snow is too wet to play or sled in and the streets are slick. It's damp and cold so it's not really nice for playing outside. We signed up for lots of morning activities during the week to keep us busy on days like these, so we only have to find things to do at home in the afternoons. MiniM.E. doesn't seem to mind playing inside- after all, she has all sorts of fun new toys from Christmas like a shopping cart and a…

Activity Board

Matt made Charlie a magnet board- kinda going for something between this and this Matt glued a sheet of galvanized sheet metal he picked up at home depot in the HVAC aisle (about $9) and glued it down to a piece of plywood framed it in I took puzzles that Charlie never plays with and made magnets out of them These magnets are awesome and very strong, but they are dirty and when we played with them on the fridge, they left black marks. And my kid put them in him mouth and got black stuff on…

DIY Lock and Hinge Board for Toddlers

I'm not sure if it's a boy thing or just a toddler thing, but Mac is obsessed with locks, hinges, latches, handles, etc. He can play with the gate in the back yard for 30 minutes (in toddler world, that's like HOURS). Open the gate, shut the gate, lock the gate, unlock the gate, open the gate, shut the gate, lock the gate... Gah! You get the idea. So, when I saw this Melissa & Doug Deluxe Latches Board, I thought it was awesome! All the little doors open and close with all kinds of cool…
