Your unforgettable

Pin It
Today I was on pinterest poking around and found this adorable elephant craft that I decided that little G and I just had to do.

First we made hearts, then cut the hearts out. For the ears and trunk we made a heart with the letter J at the end of it for the trunk. Then I let him go to town with the glue ( going to attempt to make my own glue soon ) I laid out some heart stickers and eyes.

Shape penguins

Pin It
I got this idea while poking through a fellow blogger called criss- cross applesauce ( sorry mobile and can't link will do later) after seeing how cute it was I decided I wanted to do it with little G.

First I cut out the shapes for him and we talked about what they were. ( beak was a triangle, body rectangle... And so on ) then let him go glue crazy and place the pieces on how ever he felt they needed to go.

As you can see we have a mutant penguin. :)) makes it that much more special.

Homemade stress balls

Pin It
We made home made stress balls to go in our calm down basket for when little G needs a small "time in" with mommy to help with feelings. So far we have a few books about feelings
And made a mind jar ( glitter and water and corn syrup in a jar shake and watch the glitter fall ) and now added out stress balls.

For the stress balls we made homemade playdoh with lavender and vanilla extract. You could just use playdoh from the dollar store but I wanted the scents. Then open the ballon and stuff in as much as you want, squeeze to get out the air and tie. Draw on faces and squeeze away :)
