See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I LOVE pinterest. I have done so many things that I never would have thought to do with my son, who is 2. We just got done playing with colored vinegar and baking soda. I went back to pinterest to find another idea since I'm bored & IT'S DOWN RIGHT NOW!
Anywho, here are some other things I have done:
-Dry erase booklet. I bought a preschool workbook and put each page in a sheet protector and bound them in a binder. He can redo the page as many times as he likes! I also did this with a few coloring pages. Did you know that there are dry erase crayons? They're awesome.
-Air dry clay in a big balloon. My son played with this for forever before it busted. Then I just took the clay & put it into another balloon. He still molds stuff with it from time to time, it's great!
-Balloon ping pong. You decorate paper plates, glue a stick of some sort onto them (We used paint stirrers) and blow up a balloon or twenty and hit them around a room.
-Memory coin holder. We are living in Europe right now, so we have a bunch of Euro coins. And Carnival coins. And Swiss franks (sp?). So we took them all & put them in a picture frame. I would have never thought of that on my own. My son had fun helping arrange the coins.
then we also have window crayons that we play with a lot & string beads on neon rubberish string stuff.
What do you do with your kids that they love from Pinterest or just in general?
