Crafts with Lily

I have discovered something. I don’t claim to be the first person to discover this, but it’s made our lives more fun the last couple of days – buttons. Lots of buttons! Lily LOVES buttons, and can play with them forever. Which is great, cuz we can get bored doing the same thing every day. So this little fad has been a welcome change to our lives. We get the buttons and pipe-cleaners out at least once a day, and have fun making things. Or in Lily’s case, she chooses the buttons she wants me to use to make things. It’s been good times.

I thought I was making a necklace for her, but when Lily saw the finished product, she immediately claimed it was a crown. So of course it became a crown.

So you other moms out there, any other easy craft/project ideas for toddlers I can use?

Oh, and while I’ve got you here, how about some more recent pictures of the kiddos?
