Toddler crafts - Week in Review

Happy Friday!!  Here's a wrap-up of our crafty week!  Be sure to check out my post from yesterday, Spring Crafting Fun For Toddlers, for more fun and easy ideas!!

Toilet paper roll octopus
I don't know why, but Sweet Girl requested to make an octopus anytime I pulled out our craft supplies.  This was really easy to make and it's so cute.  First, paint a toilet paper roll and decorate with stickers once it's dry.  Then cut seven little slits in the bottom and fold up the edges to make the octopus legs.  Scrunch up a paper towel and stuff it into the toilet paper roll (try to round it out to make it look kind of like an octopus).  You can either use markers to decorate the "face" or just draw on eyes and a mouth.

The three bears (from Goldilocks and the Three Bears)
We used our felt storytelling board and read Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  Afterwards, Sweet Girl dressed the bears, gave them googly eyes and drew on a nose.  Then she read a story to them (and the octopus)!

Story Time!

Here are our letter G crafts or this week!

Glitter G
This made quite a mess, but Sweet Girl loved it since she got to use lots of glue and glitter.  (Quick tip....use a little bit of play dough to pick up any fallen glitter)

G is for....Guitar
Sweet Girl is my live-in-Ipod, so I knew she would enjoy this one!!  Check out No Time for Flashcards for directions!  It was so simple and fun to make! 

G is for....googly eyes
Oh my was this fun!  We laughed the whole time we were adding the eyes!

Here are my two favorites!!  That's Sweet Girl as a baby on the left!  She LOVED that one!!

And guess who's a rollin' rollin' rollin' now????
Love him!!

And just because it's too adorable not to post....
