Lord of the Rings Hobbit House Toddler/Mommy Craft

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!

Toilet Paper Roll Craft – Dinosaurs!

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)
