Playing Peekaboo by Lime Lane Love

 

 

Baby boy recently turned 7 months old and he’s really getting interested in the idea of object permanence. I love how it fascinates him to hide his toys and watch them reappear again and again! It never fails to make him smile which makes everyone else smile too 🙂

I wanted to capture some of this on camera.

I-Spy Quilt Square Swap

Standard

Ever heard of an I-Spy quilt? It’s made with lots of different novelty fabrics so that each little square has something different to play I-Spy with. Making the quilt can be a tedious process because each square should be different, and you need a LOT of squares for a good I-Spy quilt.

This is why I was SO excited to find this I-Spy Swap over at Helping Little Hands! Instead of cutting one tiny square from 200 different fabrics, you cut 20 squares each from 10 different fabrics and send them in. Then the squares get swapped with other participants, and you get 200 different squares back–so much easier! And cheaper since you’re not buying 200 fabrics 😉

The March swap is closed, but you can leave a comment to get added to a future swap.

These are the 10 fabrics I sent in:

St Patrick’s Day Treasure Hunt

Standard

DIY Treasure Hunt

This is a fun St Patrick’s Day tradition to start with your kiddos! You can have a real prize for them at the end (candy, coins, etc) or you can use the free option below.

I found this printable at Spoonful.com. The cards themselves are blank so you can either write in your own clues, or you can type them in photoshop. There are 6 cards total, but you can print as many sheets as you want if you’d like more clues. Suggested clues are below.

Spoonful Printable Clue Cards

St. Patrick's Day Scavenger Hunt

Suggested clues from Spoonful:

1.       Search far and wide by any measure, it’s time to begin your quest for treasure.

2.       Left and right you’ll turn your head, when you look underneath your bed.

3.       The rainbow path has come to an end. You’ve found a treasure to share with your friends.

Suggested Clues by Lime Lane Love:

1.       It’s time to start your treasure hunt, let us begin on the porch out front.

2.       You can do it—I’m sure you are able! Maybe the treasure is under the table.

3.       Keep trying, you’ll probably have to crouch—now you must look under the couch.

4.       I’m sure the treasure is dead ahead!  Let’s go look behind your bed…

5.       If it’s treasure you desire, maybe you should check the dryer.

6.       You’ll soon join the treasure club if you go look in the tub.

7.       You can find what you pursue, let’s check were we keep the food.

8.       In a cabinet? Under a box? Go look where you keep your socks.

9.       (End with a prize) You have searched far and wide, now it’s time to claim your prize!

10.   (Free option) You have done it! Now we’re through. We found what we wanted—the treasure is you!
