Macaroni Names

This one is SUPER simple! Plus it is a wonderful 'time eater' ... I had Bug do this while I cleaned out my car today! Worked like a charm!!! 

For this one you need glue (liquid), dyed macaroni (or regular works perfectly too!), construction paper with your little ones name on it. I have it on a tray since we are outside but that is not needed! 
Dye your own macaroni!! Check it out HERE

Have your little one trace the letters with the glue
[I had to trace the 'B' to show Bug how to do it but she did the other 2]


Then have them stick the macaroni to the glue lines

Have them continue to repeat those steps until their name is covered in noodles

WATER BREAK!!! It was toasty out there today!!

Then, Back to work!!!

Making the best of an oops!

So the other day we were making cupcakes for my step-Moms birthday.....it started out as a great idea! That is until my oven got turned from 350 to somewhere around 600 degrees!!! Yup! somewhere around 600! Needless to say my 12 cupcakes burnt REALLY fast....

Instead of just throwing them in the garbage I decided to turn them into a sensory project! Check it out!!

12 very burnt cupcakes! Remove the wrappers and let your kiddo go!

Trying to use her hands to smash them .. When that didn't work....

She resorted to using her feet :)

Using her hands to smash the last few big pieces 

This is what we were left with!

Clean Up Time!!

Cake (even burnt) has a completely different texture than anything your child would normally encounter. Yes, I am sure they have eaten it...but, have they taken the time to squish it between their fingers and toes? So much fun!!! Especially since they were being tossed in the garbage anyways! :)
