Make this 4-Ingredient, Edible Pumpkin Slime with your toddlers. They will have so much fun playing with it! So simple. So fun!

This is the first time we have tried slime at our house. Oh my goodness! I don’t even know why we waited this long to hop on the slime train.

It’s so fun!

I didn’t want to make slime with glue. Well, you know…kiddos and their curiosity. What does this taste like?

So, I made an edible version (well, you don’t want to eat alot of it. It may give you the tummy aches). But, it’s safe to eat a little.

What’s even better is that it only has 4 ingredients. So, it’s easy peasy!

How to Be a Creative Mom When You Are Not

You can be a creative mom. It is possible! I am sharing 8 ways you can be. It is simple and you can start doing fun arts and crafts with your kiddos!

Moms ask me how I’m so creative. I can never really give them a reason how. So, I thought I’d write a post about how to be creative when you are not.

Hopefully, it helps you have more fun with your kiddos at home!

How to Be a Creative Mom When You Are Not

Step One. Think positive. Really. If you think you’re not creative, you won’t be. There are times, I look at my projects and say out loud, “This is horrible! I’m not creative!” But, creativity is tying new things and seeing what happens. It can come out great, it can come out looking like poop; but, did you have fun? Which leads me to step two.

Step Two. What I am trying to say is that the projects you’re doing don’t have to be Pinterest worthy. What matters most is the fun you have with your kids. They don’t know that mom is just making it up as she goes along. They don’t know that it’s not the prettiest project. All they know, is mom is making an effort to have fun and do something with them.

Make this Monster Moon Sand with your kiddos and have such a fun time! Dig your hands in and mold shapes and creatures. Such a fun sensory activity. And it smells like lime!

We have been learning the letter M this week. So, I wanted to make an activity that was hands on for my kiddos to dig their hands into.

And this was the perfect activity that kept them entertained for awhile! Yay! I even got my hands in the Monster Moon Sand. It was fun!

Halloween isn’t for another month and a half, but this activity would be fun to do around that time too. So, we will most likely be doing this again next month!

Surprisingly, my kiddos kept it all in the plastic bin. But, the candy eyes vanished real quick. So, if you don’t want your kiddos eating candy, leave those out. But, then it’s just green moon sand. It was fun while it lasted.

It didn’t stop my daughter from playing with it though. She pretended to make cookies with it.

Four Seasons Activity Puzzles

Make these four seasons activity puzzles for your preschooler to learn the four seasons. Read the book Tree to go along with it. It will be so fun!

Make these four seasons activity puzzles for your preschooler to learn the four seasons. Read the book Tree to go along with it. It will be so fun!

We’ve been learning about the four seasons and reading the book Tree by Britta Teckentrup.

Tree is such a cute book! It’s a peek-through picture book that walks you and your child through the four seasons. Not only do the trees change, but different animals come out to play.

My son noticed the spider and it’s web. When the seasons changed, the spider’s web became bigger. He also noticed the birds in a nest and then there were eggs, and later baby birds.

Each time we read it, we found something new.

My son wanted to do an activity while I read the book to him. So, I made little tree puzzles for each season.

All you need is a little bit of cardboard, paint and scissors. Easy peasy!

L is for Lion Craft and Activity

Make this L is for Lion Craft and Activity for your preschool to practice scissor skills and to recognize the letter L.

We are learning the letter L this week! And my son’s favorite so far is L is for Lion. He kept asking, “can we do a lion craft, please? Oh please, Mom?” So, we did. We did an L is for Lion craft!

I wanted the craft to include letter recognition and fine motor skills. So, it has all of that! Whoo hoo!

I absolutely love that my son can be learning multiple things at once.

I had to think for a minute how we could make a lion. So, if you know me and follow me on Instagram, you know that I love raiding my kitchen for supplies. If I don’t have to buy extra things, the better.

I found an empty coffee container with a lid.

I grabbed orange and yellow construction paper, scissors, a black permanent marker, tape and a glue stick. And we were all set to start our lion craft.
