Kate Gribble of An Amazing Child shared this beautiful Paper Towel Butterfly Mobile 😀
This activity uses paper towel and food colouring (paint). It is perfect for toddlers. The paint spreads beautifully across the paper and once dry, can be cut into any shape you like. This mobile was made by Kate and her 27 month old son for her 11 week old daughter.

Today, the kids were given these..
Heavy paper roll
Empty plastic bottles.
They were told to think of a game to play with those and they came out with this…
Plastic bottle bowling. Cool!
They enjoyed it very much that they were reluctant to stop!
The satisfaction they got when they hit a STRIKE was priceless 😀

Jamie of hands on : as we grow shared this beautiful Yarn Circle Garland craft with us. Jamie says, “Crafts sometimes take different shape than originally intended. Most of the time they end up with a better outcome.
This beautiful garland is made from only yarn and glue and the help of a muffin tin, all by my preschooler.”
