Toddler stocking gift and box craft

11th 12 2017. Posted in Magical Moments at Home by elliekelly

 

This is a super easy toddler stocking filler and also gives your toddler a fun but calm craft to do later in the day or on boxing day.

You need:

  • A little box or bag
  • A selection of box decorating crafts such as crayons, stickers and gems. Don’t be tempted to use felt tips or glitter as there is enough to do on Christmas day without a mega craft tidy up as well.
  • A empty box – the bigger the better!

I didn’t buy anything new for this. I used a little suitcase we already had and raided the craft draws to fill it with colouring pencils, stickers, gems and colourful pipe cleaners.

Most of us will have one or two boxes after all the gifts have been unwrapped and a little bit of time sat on the floor turning one of them in to a house, den, rocket, tank or elf workshop might be the quite time you all need.

If you only have small boxes then turn them in to houses or beds for thier toys. Neive loves putting all the toys to bed at the moment.

Baby play – Egg carton & Nature

7th 08 2017. Posted in Magical Moments at Home by elliekelly

 

Neive has LOVED all the time outside over the last few weeks (lets hope for more sun though) and has been very keen to touch all the plants and flowers. I made up a little nature egg box for her to discover the other day and it was a hit, the egg box just as much as the flower, stick and leaves.

She is in her 8th leap at the moment so she is really getting to grips with cause and effect and working out how things work and what she needs to do, and in what order to get the resutls she is looking for.

Baby sensory play with ice

19th 06 2017. Posted in Magical Moments at Home by elliekelly

  This is the perfect baby sensory play on days as hot as these! It’s sooo hot!! I do love the sun and the heat but i would rather be on holiday when it’s this hot, by a pool with a cold drink. Running around after a baby and hosting kid’s parties in 30+ heat […]

Baby play with balloons

  So simple and yet so much fun. With a garage full of balloon and helium Neive has been playing with a balloon for some time. When she was around 54 and a half months old I would tie a loop in the end of the string and put it around her foot. She loved […]

Baby box sensory play

6th 06 2017. Posted in Magical Moments at Home by elliekelly

  The classic baby in a box game. I must say Neive wasn’t as keen to go inside the box as i thought she would be. We haven’t done lots of play with tunnels yet though so i think she was a bit unsure. I cut some holes in the top of the box and […]

Baby play with tissue paper

30th 05 2017. Posted in Magical Moments at Home by elliekelly

  This play idea I got after Neive pulled all the tissues out of the tissue box. How do babies know the things that make the most mess are the most fun! I took the now empty tissue box and re filled it with bits of tissue paper. It was so easily i just ripped bits […]

  I got this idea because Neive loves to shake marks Pepsi bottle around. I part filled one of the Pepsi bottles with water and a drop of food colour and one larger one with water, beads and star stickers. She had fun sliding them along the floor and shaking them but she wasn’t to […]

  Neive loves a sticker and she thinks it hilarious when I put stickers on her nose or head. I got some felt sheet from my art supply box along with some big flower foam stickers and we had a play last week. She spent quite a long time on this activity and liked to […]
