I received this used kid craft clubhouse as a gift from a friend. I just planned to paint it and fix it up a little but once I put on the red and white stripe drapes, the Seuss house was born. Kids houses should be fun and inspiring ;)
I added these fun test tube flower pots.
This is a fun twist on the painting with a ziplock bag activity. The kids really enjoyed working with the straws and seeing the paint come through. They also had fun moving the paint around with their hands on the surface.
This is a fun way to keep kids active while in the house. Just put up a string of painter's tape and have them run through like it's a racing finish line. I chose tape because they wanted to do it at least 100 times over. It was the easiest and safest tool for the game.
Incorporate fun simon says games to encourage listening and following instructions.
I strung these jingle bells up and hung them along our window. The kids really took to them. I used this activity during our Indian Village week but plan to do it again for our santa's workshop week.
Save your next carton for this fun activity. It keeps my 1yr old, 3 yr old and 4 yr old busy. I really can't explain why but it does work and is a must try. All you need is a carton like this and craft sticks. It's best suited for younger toddlers but the older ones enjoy it too.
Start with having them blow the feather on the ground. Then have them blow the feather with a straw. For older ones, it can be a feather race game. Finally, bring out the big blowing guns (hair dryers). Have them blow the feathers across the room. We used dryers with a cool setting.
Looking for ideas on Birthday decor. This decal took 20 minutes to make. I covered it in clear contact paper so it could last several play sessions. Still need to add his jet pack but love the way it's coming out. My boys are totally into Turbo Snails right now.
Also a good lesson for preschool age children
No wonder Pinatas are such a hit at parties. Kids love whacking things. Here's a safer alternative to that dreaded stick used on pinatas. Use Paper towel dowels instead. We duck tape ours with fun colors. Best part is you can hang what ever you want to match the theme of your party/lesson/play date. Use duck tape to suspend all strings from ceiling. It holds up best.
