Pinterest inspiration

I love Pinterest and especially love finding practical solutions to my problems. I cloth diaper baby G, and I hate that the dryer is always going. So when I saw This ..........
 after I followed the link to Centsational girl's blog I knew we had to give it a try. She has all the instructions layed out in easy to follow steps. I enlisted my husband and even tho he dragged his feet for a month to finish it, I am happy with how it turned out. I especially love the color against the grey laundry room wall. I would have taken a full wall picture but our laundry room/ bathroom is under construction and is in a quite a state. Anyway it is hung over our wall heater and I am happy to say this particular cloth diaper and insert were dry when I checked on them a few hours later.
Thanks for looking and I appreciate your comments :)

Wowzers been awhile eh? So sorry but I have been crazy busy with work and being a mommy to my little ones. We have been doing lots of fun Christmas stuff but honestly I have been so tired in the evenings I don't feel much like posting every activity. Maybe over Christmas vacation or in the new year. Plus I find Pinterest sucks me in and before I know it A hour has passed and I'm falling asleep ;p Can you believe Jada is 4 and Gage is 9 months!! phew where did that time go? A little update on our cloth diaper situation.... The diapers I got from etsy just didn't make the cut so now we use fuzzi bunz and have never had a problem plus they are nice and thin so no extra bulk:) anyway frinds just popped in to say Hi andto let you know i will be back Merry Christmas Bloggy friends!!!!

September Trays 2012


Happy September!!! Jada Roo is off to kindergarten today and today is her 4th Birthday

Hands down the best "toy" I have ever bought. I looked everywhere for one of these and found it in the Melissa and Doug section at a toy store while on vacation.
Extended play. Making a old play toy special again just by adding some peg people in a bag
Bath cling

And spooning aquarium rock.

Cowboy Sensory Bin

Yehaw Cowboys and girls! I wanted to do something a bit different for fall this year. Yes, I am early posting this because I am not sure if I can get time in September to post. So I kept the fall feeling in this bin by using corn kernels. Also in the bin is alphabet noodles, cow, horse, sheriff badge, plastic cowboy hats and boots, cactus, plastic cowboy people, coyote, and cowboy themed erasers. I want to point out that I try to reuse food items in future sensory bins. This is also the case with the plastic plants and animals as well.

Little Red Riding Hood Sensory Bin

Jada want's to be Little Red Riding Hood for Halloween so I decided to put together a Sensory Bin in the same theme. I planned to add a house, basket etc but there is just no room in this bin. Maybe next time
I used rice dyed green, pinecones, wood trees, mushrooms, white rocks a peg doll and a wolf.

Pirate Shipwreck

So thanks to Disney's Jake and the Never Land Pirates we have a wee obsession with Pirates around here. I found it really hard to find pirate stuff at the dollar store which is strange because everywhere you look in N.S. every summer is pirates this and that. So I made my own peg pirates (girl and boy) and searched Etsy and bought a wood pirate from Armadillo dreams.
Now whats in the bin?
Rice as filler to look like white sand, wood gold coins, parrots, red X marks the spot, blue anchor, foam sponge shapes, palm trees, treasure chest, homemade Jolly Rodger flag and a fake pearl bracelet. I might add some silver dollars to the bin later

Our favorite book for our pirate theme is How I Became A Pirate by
Melinda Long and David Shannon. This book teaches you how to speak pirate and takes you along on a great sea voyage adventure.

Bike/Scooter Painting

It was such a beautiful day here in Nova Scotia yesterday. We took full advantage and tried something new. We have done car and truck painting but wanted to do it again on a much larger scale:)



Jada setting herself up to make some tred marks

It was a bit windy yesterday so the rocks helped hold the paper down



Jada grew tired of this actvity after a while and decided to do boot painting:)

Fairy Sensory Bin


This month we have decided to focus on Fairies and make believe. I had great luck at a thrift store and found a fairy house, mushrooms and hedgehogs. The rest of the things in the bin we already had. It was Jada's idea to add the little dish of Fairy treasures.

Tray Work

Hi everyone! just stopping by with some new trays:

spooning rice into a funnel

Arranging flowers and leaves

dressing

vintage lacing boards

And counting pompoms. I am cleaning out my kitchen and decided I didn't want or use this magnetic spice tin and holder. I had it at daycare for a few weeks now not knowing what I should do with it until I realized we haven't been doing enough counting activities. Pompoms are nice and quiet as the children drop them into the tin ;)
