  • Headbands

There will be more but I'm still just starting this new exciting stage in my life.

Elmo Birthday Party Decorations - DIY : Streamer Curtains : Sesame Street Party Decorations

This is a short video on how I made my streamer curtains for my son's birthday party. It took about an hour to finish this project. And about $4 worth of streamer from the dollar store. It was definitely worth the work and of coarse my son loved to play with them afterwards.
NOTE: Children will love to run through and pull the streamer curtain. So, be prepared for some destruction!

IKEA KURA BED - How we assembled the bed - Star of Paris DIY

This is a short video on how we assembled the KURA bed by IKEA. I have to admit, it took a while to set everything up, but once you know order of the parts then its easy. Definitely use the extension tool included in the kit to make it easier and quicker.

Spray bottle art time - 2 year old activity

 I have been trying to do more art activities with my son since we have been staying indoors so much. I know he loves to get the water bottle and spray the cat or dogs; so I knew this would be a fun project for him. Although it would be best to do this outdoors, under controlled conditions it's possible to do indoors.

I have washable kids paints which I mixed with water and placed in a spray bottle.
Paper to place on his art easel
Tape to hold the paper in place and the bottom of the paper to catch any running paint.
A rag, just in case the solution is too watery and you need to quickly clean up.

Image 1: Shows how I taped the paper to the bottom of the art easel. It catches the running paint.

The paints and bottle I used.
You will know immediately if your solution is too watery when you spray the paper. Add more paint to intensify the color and decrease the liquidness of the solution.

Overall, a fun project for my toddler. Painting with spray bottles definetly adds to the excitement of art time.
