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…

Tips for taking your Toddlers to the Magic Kingdom - AFTER Bedtime!

Hiya Pals!

In an attempt to capture as many beautiful memories of the days when we traveled through Disney with three toddlers, I have brought my Youtube Channel back to life!

In my most recent vlog, I share several tips on how to have an amazing time in the Magic Kingdom with your toddlers after they are typically in bed. You can find three of the tips listed below.


Tip 1  Make sure children are well rested. Since we live about 5 hours from Walt Disney World, our children are often asleep most of the time we are driving. Since it's next to impossible to get them to go to sleep once we get to our hotel room, we opt for a few hours of fun in the parks. 
Tip 2 Have a plan.  We decided to grab fast passes for the Princesses and Peter Pan because those activities typically have a long line. In order to make the most of our evening, we only did things located inside Fantasy Land. This helped maximise our time inside the parks. 
Tip 3 Utilize the Baby Center!  We always head to the baby c…

MOM HACKS: Postpartum Hair Loss & Regrowth!

Remember when you were pregnant, and everything seemed to glow? 
If you, like me, find yourself sweeping up enormous amounts of hair from you floor, or constantly cleaning your shower drains and vacuum cleaners, fear not. 
You are NOT alone. 
Our hair goes through different cycles. There will be times when your hair is in a state of rest, and then will shed. According to what I've read, when you are not expecting, you loose about 100 hairs a day. However, once you become pregnant, your body slows down the cycles. Thus, keeping those 100 hairs nicely on your head.

Once your beautiful baby is born, and your hormones start to go back to normal... the cycle returns and your hair begins to fall. With all three of my pregnancies, this happened between 3-5 months postpartum. It's quite unfortunate that just about the time I was feeling like a human, and getting the hang of motherhood my hair started falling out.

Now that I've gone through this process three times, I thought I'…
