Mothers Day Food your Kids Can Make

Here is another Mothers day post but this time some ideas for food. Some of these your little ones might need more help (hint hint dad!) but they might be fine if they are a little older though.

Valentine’s Day Crafts for Toddlers (Especially Boys)

Valentine’s Day Crafts for Toddlers (Especially Boys)

Valentines day is quickly creeping up, its saturday just in case you might forget! 🙂

Im still trying to keep an eye open for Valentines crafts but it also got me thinking Valentines is very pink/red and pretty so how do you get your little boys involved if they arent into all that?

Here are some ideas i think might work that i found on mummysbundle.

The only issue I’ve run into is that my little boy isn’t too fond of crayons, markers or paint-type projects at the moment. He’d much rather be playing with puppets, tossing objects or pushing cars.

That got me thinking. If I could just find Valentines’ crafts that had some creative movement to them –crafts he could use in pretend play, it would be perfect.  So I searched a bit harder.  I finally came across a few that would do the trick.

Here are 4 Valentines’ day crafts I found for active toddlers, especially rambunctious little boys like my own:

1. Valentine’s Day Inch Word Pencils

Isn’t this idea simply adorable? I know this could work well for either boys or girls, but thought my little man in particular would get a kick out of wiggling little inch-worm pencils across the floor and then using them to chase our dog around the house, hehe!

2. Cupid Arrows

I love the fact that these cupid arrows work just like paper planes.  Not only are they very simple to create, they are perfect for little hands that love to toss things all day!!

3. Luv Puppy Puppet

Since my little guy LOVES both dogs and puppets, I was so glad I found this puppy puppet.  I can’t wait to see his face light up when we put a couple of these together for a puppet show!

4. Popsicle Stick Butterfly

This one too cute to pass up.  Popsicle sticks are so much more durable than construction paper projects so I know my kid won’t tear it to pieces the moment we start playing.  I can just picture him launching the butterfly up in the air and making him fly. Plus, once he sees the googly-eyes I’m sure he will be all smiley faces :)!
