The New Car Needs Gas!

The season for garage sales is upon us, and so is throwing out the rest of that stuff you just couldn’t sell. Aunt Jackie picked up a Little Tikes push car from the side of the road, and brought it for E. Of course, my son is all about cars, so this new toy quickly became his favorite outside toy.

In order to encourage his outdoor play, I decided we needed to make a gas can station!

Taking a larger amazon box, I cut out a cube, closed it with duct tape, and had E help paint the box.

It was a fun, simple project that I think will help develop his imagination and independent play!

New additions for the beginning of 2018!

The new year has already brought two new additions to the Children and Chickens homestead.

First, we welcomed a new son to our family in January!

And second, we brought the loom home in February!

So with some practice I will have some new items for Marie’s Craft Corner, and some new blog posts about my weaving mishaps and achievements.
