Check out my boards to find the sources for these ideas and many more.
What I love most is that I had to spend $0 on these activities.
I had all the supplies at home,
which is a major plus!
* First off, let’s look at the
“poke a hole in the top of a canister and stick q-tips into the holes“ activity.
The Q-Tip activity is so easy
and keeps kiddos entertained for quite awhile. Most of us have an empty cool whip container and q-tips (or tooth picks for older toddlers). This is an easy game to whip up for any kiddo. Another idea for added coordination is to have your toddler put beads into the holes to help improve their pincer grasp!
*Next, I bring you the “colander” activity.
Give ’em a colander and pipe cleaners for at least
15 minutes of fun!
Guinnyth loved sticking them in the holes. For older toddlers, have them weave the pipe cleaners through the holes!
*”Egg Carton and Pom Poms”
Simply hold onto an old egg carton and throw some pom poms in the lid.
Kiddos can make patterns,
drop one pompom in a hole at a time to work on coordination. For older toddlers, number (or put ABCs) the compartments and have them put a pom pom in a specific hole.
*Lastly, I bring you “birdhouse painting,”
except, there is no paint involved!
It is a real treat for Guinnyth to be able to use markers,
so she couldn’t care less about paint. I offer her crayons first, and then when she gets bored with those I whip out the markers and it’s like brand new all over again!
This bird house was $1 at JoAnn’s. You can snatch up little wooden cars, face masks, and other wooden objects to have them decorate. For older toddlers, give them gems that have “sticky” on the back and let them bling it out!

When we moved into this home almost 3 years ago, I fell in love with so many parts of it. One thing I did want to change was the pink/beige kitchen backsplash. It isn’t horrible, but it was something that we agreed would be swapped out in time. This spring we decided to give it…
