  4. I do a project with my almost 3-year old every week and here are some of the ones we've tried: painting with water, file folders (I've made three), ice treasures, shoe/hands turkeys, dot painting, and paper plate maracas. The only one I might do differently is the paper plate maracas just because my son at the time was very much in to taking things apart to see what's inside...so you can imagine the outcome when he and his cousin figured out how to get the plates apart!

  5. How fun! My husband grew up on a farm and we are always trying to teach our son about all the different animals. I found your site through a friend and I love it! I like to make file folder games for Church and I have really been wanting to do some of your fun shape activities. I need to stock up on some supplies first!

  8. I check your site out probably about once a week for ideas. I haven't done too many of them yet, but it has inspired me to do more fun, creative stuff instead of just having paper and coloring books and letting them draw. I have since bought some washable paint, smocks, and some little wooden cars to paint (only $1 at michaels) I have done the cutting shapes out of cereal boxes and threading with yarn, and I printed many things from the website that helps them with their letters (where you can put in their name). I am from mesa, az and I heard about this through a friend. -mindi

  25. We have tried several things from your site, one that comes to mind was the footprint ghosts. We did just one footprint (low on white paint) but they still turned out soo cute.

  30. I love the color days when you do food items for the kids to eat. I haven't done it yet, but I want to - maybe it will get my girls to try some new food. Also I forgot to put it in the first comment, but I'm in Denver.

  32. We did the butterflies with the coffee filters. They were fun. We just folded them like fans though to put them together. My son loved squirting the water and watching the colors run. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I heard about Toddler Boredom Busters from your very own personal blog! =0)

  34. I believe once you did a project about mixing colors where you put a piece of paper in a big container with objects and rolled them around, etc. I did something a bit different, but you may have done this too, I got some foil 9X13 pans, put a piece of paper, drops of paint and a marble and let the kids roll it around. They loved it and no mess!!

  35. I recently found your blog when I did a search for toddler activities. We are HUGE fans and my 2 year old son Ryan and I visit your site daily. It is so much fun seeing what projects you come up with next. AC Moore now sees us a few times a week. We have done numerous projects but I must say the toys in the ice was his favorite. He now goes through all of his toys selecting which one he will freeze. We even did a variation and did an ice cube tray with colored ice cubes so he can learn colors as well. Thanks for such a great blog!!

  47. We did the activity where you use a big bucket with a lid and tape a picture to the inside and use paint to color it by rolling it around or shaking it. It went pretty well but we should use less paint next time because it got behind the picture and it was hard to get out and took a long time to dry. It was really fun though!

  50. I'm a little scared to paint with a toddler...something about my new kitchen table...but if I ever get over that fear, I LOVED the triangle lizards. Actually, I have loved all of the shape and color days. How fun to have a themed day/week.

  65. I heard about your blog from your good friend Danielle. I just read her post about it on her blog. She kindly dropped a hint just for me. I am the one who shows up on the feed from India. We normally live in Denver, but are in India for six months.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Wow, you really have a lot on here. I just went back and read some posts to see what I would do. I don't have any toddlers yet, but when my 10 month old gets bigger there is a lot I want to do. But I did like a lot of the cute painting things you have listed for 6 month and older. I don't think I will do them for a few more months while here in India, as I don't know what resources I would find here. But when we come home I am sure I will come to this site for ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Sure, I just became a follower. I think I read your blog before I had a baby and it didn't really catch my eye. But now that I have one of my own I can see myself in the future looking for things to do with him, and I can see myself doing a lot of the things from here. :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love your blog. I met you at a craft night and heard about your blog from you. Love it! I love the heart wreath. What a cute and inexpensive Valentine's day idea.
