Before I start talking about my tips and tricks for this week I have to mention that I also have a guest post on my friend Kristin's blog today. I shared one of our favorite recipes for her Tasty Tuesdays post. So hop on over there!
Today, I'm giving you an invaluable trick/tip! An indoor boredom buster! I don't know about you moms, but whenever I look on pinterest at my stuff to do with littles board, all there is for 1 year olds is paint projects! We have done cute art projects that I will share with you guys soon but we've also attempted other art projects and they have been disastrous.
There was a big fire near us last week and I wanted to stay in with C. So I turned to pinterest. I decided we were going to do marble painting. Then as I was driving to Target I started imagining him putting the marbles with paint on them in his mouth and I decided it was probably not a good idea.
Below is a picture of C in his favorite new toy. A box from Costco.
I save a lot of diaper boxes. I put the clothes C has outgrown into them. I used them to transport birthday party supplies. As I was driving I was thinking I could make a tunnel for C to crawl through and play in by just taping some boxes together. So after seeing the tunnels you can buy are like $13, I decided to try it.
Here is C crawling through the tunnel.
So if it is hot or raining where you are. Grab some boxes and make a tunnel! Or just let your little one play in them.
