You’ll need: a lid, rice grains and coloring.
We split the rice into two bowls (approx. 2:1 ratio). Drop a couple drops of blue food coloring in the bowl with more rice, and green in the other.
Next we drew land and sea boundaries on the lid (so we knew where to stick the blue an green). Now spread glue in land regions and pour your green rice over it. Same for the blue (water regions)
Finally, we covered it with clear plastic (cling film)
My nephew (2.5 yrs) has a couple favourite animals. And Elephants are lucky enough to be included in that group.
Here’s a very simple craft activity for a toddler.
- You need to three heart cut outs. Two of them must be the same size for the ears. And one for the face slightly bigger.
- A strip for the trunk.
Assemble them as shown above. You can draw in the eyes with a black pen.
I came across Paper Place’s collage challenge and jumped on it! On Thursday, I picked up their package. It included a large blank cardstock and lots of scrap paper.
I came across this awesome cross stitch card! And just had to share with you. Here’s the effect that I fell in love with:

Creating a lapbook can be a lot of fun. It provides you with a great opportunity to bond with your child. You can make it as simple or as complex as you like. You can incorporate flaps, pockets, flashcards, mini booklets, colouring pages, activity sheets and so much more. It’s like a variation of scrapbooking, yet it is much more interactive. Your child can continue referring to his/her lapbook and you can even add new activities to is as he/she progresses. It’s as a great educational tool and is quite popular in homeschooling.
Make your own money stick puppet!
I’ve been on a card making spree!
On my last trip to Walmart, I picked a bag of buttons for $3. It made me really happy to think of crafts I can do make and stuff kids could do with them.
And not to mention my recent purchase of Circle Scissors (Ek Tools). The ability to cut circles endlessly really excited me! So much so that I started pinning all sort of circle-ish cards on my Pinterest board.
I found this card on Pinterest and really liked the minimalist look. So I got working.
(Here’s the end result!)
