We went back to the ReSource Warehouse & Gallery to do the make and take today (where you pay $5 an hour to use anything in their special room filled with a gazillion little fun odds and ends to make whatever you want). What started out with “maybe today we should make a house… or maybe a little town out of cardboard” turned into “let’s make a hobbit house!” It’s amazing what you can make with things that are just laying around, in this case an Amazon box, a large tube, some tissue paper and some paint. I love the Resource Warehouse’s weekly arty party! I can’t wait to keep coming back throughout the summer and see what else we can come up with!
More pictures after the cut, unfortunately no how-to because it was such a whirlwind to make
I’m beyond excited about this one! My first personal creative and non-pinterested thing in a long time haha. Not even sure how the idea came to me, but we had an AMAZING time being creative together and trying out things until it worked!
1 brown paper bag
5 pipe cleaners
1 toilet paper roll or paper towel roll
2 sheets tissue paper (I used leftovers from his birthday)
Directions after the cut
Once again another awesome craft for toddlers that I found on Pinterest! These came out incredibly cute and Rand had a wonderful time drawing the faces & toes, gluing the spikes and spots, and attaching the feet to the body. I did make one adjustment to the tutorial by taping a plastic straw to the back of the dinosaur’s head to keep it from drooping (since I didn’t have thick paper to work with)

Another Pinterest project come to life! These made me so happy
I love these toilet paper roll crafts — I think I might just be addicted! Click through the link to find more progress shots
When I saw this pin I just had to do it. It’s so freaking cute!
The best part about this was that my 4 year old was able to pretty much do all of it! He painted the toilet paper rolls himself, I just helped with taping the head to the body and cutting the slits for the legs & cutting the little squares.

Here’s a fun and super quick craft (not to mention delicious, as it involves eating 2 cans of pringles prior to making it). Follow the link after the jump for instructions and more pictures.
