Spring time bookmarks

I was inspired by my soon to be 2 year old daughter, to create these fun spring time bookmarks I've noticed lately she has been sneaking our bookmarks out of our books when we leave them on our nightstand. My husband has even started hiding his books just to avoid losing his spot. How wonderful... Well I figured hey why not create some fun, cute, little bookmarks for my daughter. (Maybe then she will leave our bookmarks alone. (I guess we will see) Anyway here you go, here's a fun, simple craft you can enjoy doing with your little one. Materials need: 1.       Craft paper           2.       scissors 3.       glue 4.       cut out shapes of your choice 5.       crayons/markers-which ever you prefer 6.       & of course a little helper :) I started off by cutting strips for the bookmark (I made each one long enough to fit in a book without falling out).  Once you have done that, start on creating the shapes for your book

Spring things!

        I finally got around to doing a craft to welcome spring. Last night my daughter and I made little chicks hatching from eggs, in a spring garden. Simple and very cute.       Something fun for my daughter to grow. (Picked this up at hobby lobby)       And we actually did this for my daughter's first birthday last year they had some cute Easter buckets at Target in the dollar section. I bought a few and dressed them up a bit. :)  

A new day~ Thankful..

This is the beginning of a new day . You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do to day is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind... let it be something good. - Author Unknown        When I wake in the morning I get kisses from both my husband, and my beautiful daughter. They mean the world to me. (Of course I can't forget about our little pug) He is usually all over me, from morning to night. I thank God for yet another beautiful day. A day filled with laughter, hugs,  kisses, conversation, learning, playing, and so much more. The days go by so quickly...I've learned that we all must slow down sometimes and enjoy these little moments.  I absolutely love life, and I am thankful that I have been given life. -Stephanie   {Breakfast time with my munchkin} My daughter loves helpi

Bubbles, counting, and more!

    I enjoy every second spent with my little one. These days it seems as though the time goes by so quickly. She's growing,  learning, and constantly making mommy proud. I remember the fist time she crawled, then walked, and now she's running and jumping..I'm truly amazed at how she has changed in the past year. I cherish my days spent with my little love, she means the world to both her daddy and I. Our day (in pictures)   {My little love, she loves her bubble machine}       {She made mommy some very delicious cookies} Yum!     {We learned about letters, numbers, and sang and danced} -leapfrog, click-start my fist computer (We received this last year for Christmas)       {Had fun counting and sorting each number out}       {Art time}       What a fun afternoon it was!

Make your own Mini Felt board

We absolutely love doing crafts in our home. I'm always on the look out for new crafts to do with my daughter. I want to keep her busy, and she's so into exploring, and trying new things. Today in the morning we headed off to the library. Every Tuesday they have Story time, with a craft. The librarian reads a few books, and after all the children participate in making a craft. (Parents are usually hands on with the craft as well) Today we made mini Felt boards with cut out shapes.  Materials needed for this project: Cardboard (Cut into a medium sized square) Glue Stick Felt (any color you choose for your background) Scissors Cut  your cardboard into a square shape. After cut some felt, and glue it on your board.  Once you are all done with that you can make some shapes using your left over felt. (Whatever shapes you decided on making, it's all up to you) Once your done your toddler will enjoy placing the felt shapes on the board. Pretty simple, and toddler approve

Hello sunny days....

I must say I'm loving the weather. I know my daughter is loving it! Today I took her to Stay and play at our local library, and they all sang, and danced, and after they all played with some of the toys the library provides for the children. It was nice getting her out and having her socialize with other's. After we went to the park, and played for a few. Today I came up with a quick activity for my little one, I drew some little chicks, and she ended up coloring them, she really  seemed to enjoy it. I went through numbers, and the alphabet, and we sang and danced around the house. (We always have a great time together) I'm excited to share...yesterday while shopping in Lowes, I found a windowsill herb garden! (Yes I'm extremely excited because I just love growing my own herbs, and vegetables..(just gardening in general. Its something I really enjoy doing.) So I got started on that today. The kit came with Parsley, Chives, Cilantro, and Oregano.  I'm so exci

Our weekend (Busy, and absolutely lovely)

  Such a busy weekend, but I must say I absolutely love the time I get to spend with my loves. We always have a lovely time.   { was delicious, and of course healthy.}     We did some learning activities (Leap Frog) Math skills, and Printing I love watching my daughter fill with such excitement as she learns something new. It's such a great feeling.   We went and saw the Geese again at the park... And we bought a new coloring book, so that my daughter could show off her lovely coloring skills. :)         Our daughter loves to paint, so we did a little artwork this weekend.. She loves fishes, so I painted her some fishes :)         And we ended this weekend with a beautiful sunset. I absolutely love when the sun sets. So peaceful and beautiful.
