fruitloop rainbow craft

Well March is here. Where the heck is the year going? I seriously feel like it should be January. Yikes... anyways.. I have been seeing this rainbow craft all over pinterest lately and have been wanting to make it with Ty for the past few days. Today was a pretty chill day so we went down to the lobby at our apartment and borrowed a few white cups (haha they can be used for things other than coffee right?!)  So then Ty and I sorted out all the fruitloops for about ten minutes. I drew on the colors so he could have a guide to where to put the fruitloops.

I sat next to him and put hot glue down two inches at a time. I put it on the lowest setting and blew on it as he was putting them on. It never burned him and he loved it.

add a few cotton balls and you have a cute rainbow and a happy toddler...

 While making this Ty said things like

"thank you mom for us making this"
"mom i can eat it as i make it.."
"mom this is so colorful"
"mom my favorite is red, green, blue, purple, orange and yellow"
"mom...ember no eat these just me...ok mom"
"mom lets make these ever day...mom. ok mom"

 Happy March :)

Play kitchen hot pads

I was having a serious case of the Mondays yesterday.. Ty and I decided to whip these up during Embers nap to feel better. He picked out the material and the ribbon. (I think he did a really good job!) Now he has his own hot pads and doesn't have to borrow mine when ever he cooks dinner in his kitchen. When Ember woke up she was equally in love with them. It was like playing with a brand new kitchen for both of them... Maybe soon I will make some matching towels and aprons... maybe:)

They are two 7 by 7 inch squares sandwiched between a layer of warm and natural with a two inch folded ribbon for hanging. Finish withed two top stitches.
