fall bucket list.

fall!!!  at last!  my favorite season that feels like spring, but is actually the highly anticipated season that us desert dwellers dream of.  the 110 degree days are a thing of that past and all I can thing of are pumpkins, hot drinks and sweaters (who cares if it’s 80 outside- I do what I want, okay?!)

B and I put together our family fall bucket list and I cannot wait to get started.  what are you and your family doing to celebrate this autumn?  I’ll be sure to post our escapades here on the blog, but you should also follow me on Instagram and Twitter for more current updates each day!

 

preschooler fun: troll haircut activity

sometimes i truly struggle with keeping B occupied on our free days where we don’t have something planned. one day i realized that i had been hoarding too many toilet and paper towel tubes for some unknown crafting purpose (because i do that). so, i decided to put together the easiest activity ever for B… a troll hair cutting station.

here’s what you need:

  • multiple empty toilet paper/paper towel tubes
  • colored pencils
  • adult scissors
  • child safe scissors

simply draw “troll faces” on each tube with various expressions, use the “grown up scissors” to cut hair on each tube, flatten out the hair so it’s easy to cut….and voila!

B was entertained for a good 30 minutes giving each troll a new do.  it then evolved into her cooking her new troll friends dinner in her play kitchen.  such a simple activity sparked her creativity and my little lefty received some cutting practice as well!

what other fun activities have you come up with using old toilet paper rolls or other random items in your home?  let me know below!
