Fun with Red

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Hunter is learning the color red, so I made this red sensory bin for him.  I didn’t think I was going to be able to find much red stuff, but after less than 5 minutes of walking around our family room I was able to fill the bin.

Hunter loved playing with everything in the bin.  The best part seemed to be trying to see which items he could fit inside of other items.

I stacked some blocks and Hunter added to the top.

Hailey got home from school while we were playing with the sensory bin, so Hunter was done with the bin.  Playing with his big sister is definitely his favorite thing to do!

I saw these cute “crayons” for toddlers, so I thought it would be fun for Hunter to use them.

He didn’t think it was fun though and it just frustrated him.  Then the crayon kept falling out, so I just gave him the crayon to write with.

He has never used a crayon before, so of course he had to taste it.
I showed him several times what to do with it, but he was more interested in shaking the crayon than trying to color with it.  I didn’t think he was going to color, so I turned around to get our next activity ready.  When I turned back around he was coloring :-)

Hunter working on coloring a picture.

(My opinion- don’t waste your money on those cute “crayons.”)

I Love You to Pieces

 Hunter made this cute little Valentine’s Day heart:

I ripped up red, pink and purple paper.  Then I put glue on the heart and he stuck the pieces on. He really liked doing it and seemed to really understand what he was supposed to do.  He was a little upset that he couldn’t be in charge of the glue stick, but other than that he had a lot of fun.

Hunter stuck the “I love you to pieces” heart on and then I brushed mod podge glue over the whole thing to make sure the construction paper would stay on.

Super easy and perfect for the Valentine of his choice :-)

 I saw this cute Valentine’s Day Bumble Bee craft over at A Cupcake for the Teacher.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Hailey glued black stripes onto a yellow piece of paper.  Once she was done adding the stripes we cut out the oval to make the bumble bee.

Hailey added a face.

She also added arms, legs and wings.

Then she added two hearts that say “Bee mine.”

Soooo cute!!

Hailey also drew this Valentine’s Day cupcake and wrote, “My cupcake has alien eyes and Rudolph’s nose and sprinkles on it.”

We used red paint, a heart shaped cookie cutter, a paper plate and a piece of paper.

I put a very small amount of paint on the paper plate and then stamped the cookie cutter in the paint.

Hunter stamped the cookie cutter onto the paper.

He had to see what it felt like.

Then he wondered what he had all over his hands.

Since Hunter was sitting in his chair at the table, after a few minutes he assumed it was time to eat.  This is how he signs for “more.”  So, we were done painting and it was time for some lunch.
