Toddler Activities {Oh How Pinterest-ing}

Yes I am a full time working mom so the time I spend with Colby
is very precious to me.
I want him to remember his mommy as being the "fun mommy!".
That he did all these cool projects with his mommy.

So when the weekend rolls around I try to make the best of my time with him.
Thank goodness for Pinterest and all it's amazing ideas.
I seriously don't know how these people come up with these ideas.
I guess when you have a tantrum throwing, screaming bloody murder toddler, you have to come up with something creative to keep your sanity.

First up are these chalkboard blocks.
How fun are these?!
You can do so many different things with him and they would be a great learning tool.
All while being fun and colorful.
Oh, and they would make a great inexpensive gift too.
I know I would love to receive these.

Next up are these fun, bright, finger paints.
I have actually made them and they are so easy.
You most likely have all the ingredients in your pantry already.
I would highly recommend you give these a try.
They will keep your toddler busy for a while.
Oh, and expect to get crazy messy!
But that's the fun in it right?!

These are colorful "rocks" that you can play with in the bathtub or in the snow.
What you do is take a balloon, fill it up with a drop of food coloring, water, freeze,
snip the balloon off, and wahla!
 Colorful rocks.
I am thinking about using these with Colby's water table and maybe in a sandbox.
It would make for some colorful sand.

I have been eyeing this activity board for a while now.
And I will make it!
All it is, is a big oil drip pan from Walmart.
Throw some paint and chalkboard paint on it.
Add any fun embellishments you want, and you have yourself
a pretty activity board for your toddler.

This stuff looks so cool!!
I cant wait to make it and play in it with him.
It sounds super easy to make.

Bath crayons.
Your toddler can go crazy and write on the walls...
but its easy clean up because they can write on the inside of the bath tub with them.
Colby would go crazy over this one.

ummm..if I don't have a toddler, am I still allowed to make bath crayons? I'm sure after a margarita or two, I'd make really pretty art on the bathtub.
