Some Bunny Loves you

I am always on the lookout for fun things my son and I can do together in our area. One place to look at is event brite.( Just search kids events) this site is great to see what kind of activities your family can enjoy in your area. I came across a mom and me paint class that happens every week.

The class included everything for $20. It was a keepsake painting and you would be using either your child’s foot or hand in the painting. That day we painting a bunny using our child’s foot. One of my sons nicknames is Honey Bunny so I was excited to be able to make this and hang it in his room.

This was put on by a company called The Color Wheelz and if you live in the Tampa Bay area I would highly recommend you check them out. This class was great. They read stories to the children and had a game for them to play. This company will also come to you for private parties for adults or children.

Toddler Activity: Felt Book of Shapes

The older my son gets the more crafty I seem to become aka looking through Pinterest and finding inspiration to create or funding tutorials on what to create.

My son is 17 mo and has shown interest in shapes. so I found this awesome tutorial on how to make a Felt book of shapes. I will not go into a lot of detail because it’s all on the blog from Plain Vanilla Mom.

I will say that it was not that expensive. I purchased the felt from Joann’s fabric(total was $5) A hole punch from staples( $1.99) and I already had a needle and thread on hand to do the stitching. I waited until the little one was asleep and got out my adult beverage and began to cut and sew :)

Here is my final product. I am going to go back to Joann’s and purchase a little velcro to place on the back of the shapes so that they stick a little better to the page. Overall I would say this was a success and I love the added pocket on the back of the book to hold the shapes when they are not in use.
