If you are looking for a new way to color your eggs this year, check out this great tutorial from Shannon of Shannon's View from Here and make some vibrant Kool-Aid Eggs. I imagine they smell wonderful too!
This is one of our favorite activities from 2013. You can save an egg carton now to make this cute Egg Carton Heart with a Candy Kiss nose. It is fun and easy and makes a cute Valentine's gift from the kids for friends and family.
If you are looking to start off the New Year in style, try this fun necklace craft from Mama Papa Bubba. It is a creative craft and a lasting keepsake your children will be proud to wear.
There are so many great things you can do with Pool Noodles. Mama to 5 Blessings shares some great new activities you can try at home to teach and play with your little ones. I love all the bright colors!
If you have any road trips planned in 2014, you will want to thank We Made That for their great tutorial on how to make Find It Bottles. These bottles full of hidden surprises will provide your little ones with miles of entertainment! Check out the tutorial for how to make one.
Keep this fun activity in your back pocket for October of 2014. Crystal and Company shares a tutorial on how to do a fun pumpkin hunt with your little ones (and maybe you can get all the neighbors involved too!)
I was so enchanted when I first saw this picture from Happy Hooligans. Using a mirror in sensory play with little ones really captures the imagination. She has so many great ideas. Check out this post and then stay awhile and find more fun ideas.
This is a wonderful activity and way to get organized in 2014 from the Kid Activities Blog. Your Lego loving child can make this great organizer for pens or pencils. Your children can use it at home or it would make a great gift for the relatives for many occasions. Many people love this idea and it has had tons of re-pins on our Artsy Play Wednesday Pinterest Board.
Saving money and doing great fine motor activities sounds like a fun way to begin the New Year. Check out Racheous Loveable Learning's post on DIY Fine Motor Montessori Activities for little to no cost.
There is something about children and farms. They love the tractors, the animals and the ambience. Craftulate has done a great job capturing this experience in her Small World Farm craft. I love that she tied it into a visit to an actual farm. This may be a fun thing to try with your little ones in 2014. The link to her post to find out how is below.
If you enjoy making sensory bins for your little ones and seeing their eyes light up as they encounter new textures and vibrant colors, you should check out Little Bins for Little Hands where she specializes in creating sensory bins. She has so many ideas (including the link below) that are sure to delight your little ones.
Winter has arrived. Though, I must admit that here in California it is still in the 70's and it does not feel like Winter yet. However, we can pretend to have snow by making these fun Melted Bead Snow Flake Ornaments from Playful Learners. Check out the tutorial on how to do it. I think it would be fun to hang them throughout the house as Winter décor, now that Christmas has passed.
After you have decided what shades to use to revamp your home in the New Year, don't throw away those paint chip samples. There are three ideas in this New Year's Roundup post alone about what else you can do with them. It would be so much fun to recycle them and create a colorful Magnetic Paint Chip Picture Frame. Check out the tutorial on how to make these on My Personal Accent (link below)
