Pinterest-ing toddler activities.

Keeping little Miss Tealyn busy playing with toys other than the I- pad have 
been a challenge. She loves to get on to YouTube and listen to the Mother Goose club songs and different educational apps.  We didn't mind because she really has learned a whole lot of songs and rhymes, but I really feel strong about children having real play time.. Old fashioned playing that lets the imagination flourish like the kind we had as kids is what, I want for her... So, we have made some changes.....We have limited her time on the I-pad to 15 min in the morning twice a week and sometimes we don't even use it... We focus more on PLAYING and, I  have toddler music playing on Pandora app on my computer.

Here are some fun toddler activities we found on Pintrest..   

Dollar store Pom-poms
I call this scooping. She scoops one pom-pom from one bowl to another
She LOVES it and we also sort colors too...
Dollar store clay and tray..
Cheerio stacking with spaghetti and clay..Love this when I am food prepping . Keeps her busy for about 20 min
Crayon shoot..
kept her busy for about 10 min . I think maybe boys would probably enjoy this one better
notice how she put a car instead of a crayon.
She got tired of shooting crayons down the paper roll and started placing all the crayons in cup then she would empty it..
Shaving creme & food coloring
Note to self: when doing this don't buy a shaving creme with cologne. UGH...

She really loves this so much it is hard getting her out. .

Love to see her play..
Lego blocks never gets old..
This is one of my favorites...

Her very favorite kind of play is with her daddy..
