DIY Disney: Tangled Tower

Happy Wednesday Friends!

This week I did a really simple and quick Disney inspired craft with my toddlers, and here are 3 things to love about this craft!
  1. Hardly ANY supplies required
  2. Hardly ANY set up
  3. Great for developing those FINE MOTOR Skills! 
I guess my bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education is getting some use as a stay at home mom. I can't help but see the teachable moments in our every day life, and my prayer is that by doing these crafts with my girls they are inspired to keep learning and trying new things.  I can't encourage you enough to craft with your toddlers, they learn SO much through the process! 

Here's what you need for your Tangled inspired craft! 

Supplies:

The Process:

Poke a bunch of holes in a piece of paper and have your children practice threading the yarn through the holes. This can be tricky for your toddlers, it's important to guide them through the process so they have fun with it without getting frustrated. 

Once they've gotten the hang of threading the yarn through the holes, you can move on to the actual craft. Cut a tower out of construction paper and hole punch a few holes throughout the tower.

Have your child thread the yarn around the tower to look much like Rapunzel's hair when she let's it down for her mother to climb. 

Once the yarn has been threaded throughout the tower, glue or tape the tower onto a piece on green construction paper. 

My daughter then added some flowers with crayons and stickers for a little extra decoration. 

Teachable Moments:
  • Vocabulary
    •  talk with your toddler share new words with them such as and help them to say them clearly
  • Color identification
    • The colors of the flowers
    • The Hair
  • Fine Motor Skills
    • To make it a little easier, put some tape around the end of the yarn to help it thread through a little easier
As a bonus, we watched Tangled together while we finished decorating our tower.  We hope you will give this quick and easy Tangled DIY a try and love it as much as we did!

Our Visit to The Little Farm

If you live in the South Florida area and have young children, I recommend filling a car with some friends and family and heading down to Goulds for some fun at "The Little Farm".*
As a mom of young children I'm always searching the web for fun (free or inexpensive) adventures for our family. It was on one of these searches that I found The Little Farm. 
I was skeptical at first because it was 5.00 just to park the car, but... when you've been cooped up in your house with three kids for a few weeks you start to look for opportunities to get out. 
At The Little Farm you will find lots of animals to look at, a cute photo opportunity ($12.00), pumpkins, petting zoo ($4.00), butterfly garden (free), horse and pony rides ($3.00), a play area and food for purchase. According to the website, proceeds from the food and pumpkin purchases during the pumpkin patch event are given to charity.
Our family had a lovely afternoon playing on the farm. We decided not to go inside the…

Baby # 3, An Early Welcome to the World! Part 1.

If you follow me on social media, you were flooded with pictures of our tiny sweet princess last weekend, and I even did a quick post about her name. Now, that she's here and we've had our first pediatrician appointment, I thought i'd take a moment and share the story of her arrival.

I guess you could say the story of her earlier than expected birthday started at our anatomy ultrasound. During the ultrasound it was noted that our baby was measuring in the 25 percentile for gestational age. Even though I have a history of small babies, the doctor at the ultrasound place was concerned about her size so I was scheduled for monthly ultrasounds to check growth.

Pregnancy continued, baby was still measuring small but we were both growing. The weekend of September 17, we dropped the girls off with family and had a little #disneyside baby moon.  We stayed up late, watched movies, slept in, ate whenever and whatever we wanted... It was really a relaxing time. We also decided to go …

Baby # 3, An Early Welcome to the World. Part 2.

In case you missed it, here is Part 1

In part one, I talk about why we induced at 37 weeks, so if you start reading and question why we would welcome our baby girl into the world at only 37 weeks, please take a quick look at part 1.

Thursday arrived, it was the day we would check into the hospital to welcome our third baby girl. My husband decided to stay home from work. We had a list of last minute things to do, and then drop the girls off with their grandparents.

After we dropped the girls off, I tried really hard to take a nap. Unfortunately, all I could do was count baby kicks and pray we would be able to deliver her without use of a c-section. My only fear with a cesarean is that I wouldn't be able to hold my toddlers during the recovery, and I just couldn't bear the thought. I expressed that concern to my obstetrician and he assured me that he felt confident we would not need a c-section, but if at any point the baby was showing she wouldn't be able to handle the d…
