SweetHearts Tea & Cupcakes

Join us for some Valentine’s Day fun at our favourite place to create: Color Me Mine!  You and your little cherub will paint a one-of-a-kind tea cup & saucer set together while enjoying cupcakes, tea, and juice. 

Baby-Safe-No-Mess Painting!

As soon as your baby has control of their hands and fingers you can start doing this craft with them. Not only does it make a sweet keepsake, but you can also use this for cards and crafts of all kinds! Is grandma or grandpa’s birthday coming up? Perfect, let your baby design their birthday card, any grandparent would be thrilled to get a homemade card from their grandchild! This craft is simple and quick to put together and super easy for your little one to do.

Baby-Safe-No-Mess Painting:

Material Needed:

  • Paper
  • Zipper-seal sandwich bag
  • Paints

Step 1: Get your paint colours picked out. I recommend using colours that will blend nicely, unless you are going for mustard brown, you want to pick complimenting colors (some examples: green-blue-teal, pink-purple-rose, red-blue, yellow-red-blue, yellow-green, yellow-pink, teal-blue-silver)

Step 2: Size and cut paper to fit inside your plastic zipper-seal sandwich bag.

Step 3: Squeeze globs onto the paper inside the plastic bag, the size of globs I used were more than enough to have the paper covered in the paint, I probably could have used even a little less than I did. Once your globs are on the paper, seal the bag ***Make sure the zipper-seal bag is sealed tightly – this is imperative for your little one to remain clean during the “painting” process! Also, try to seal it with little to no extra air in the bag, you want it nice and flat.

Step 4: Let your child go nuts with it, the babies I have done this with have smacked and smeared the bags along the floor, crumpled it up, sat on it, and played with it like an accordion – anything works, just NOT in the mouth. ***keep a close eye as these bags are not entirely baby proof and the zipper seal *could* come undone, I have also had a pin sized hole in one of the bags and it just takes a tiny bit of paint to make a mega-mess. If you don’t want your little one to be playing too roughly with the bag you could also use tape to secure it to the floor/table/highchair tray and then they can just smack, smear, and finger draw the paint around.

The paper inside the bag will be pretty soaked by the end of painting time so the next step is my secret trick to help preserve their amazing art-work just as they made it.

Step 5: FREEZE IT! Don’t open the bag, take it straight to the freezer and make sure you have it laying flat on something and allow it to freeze overnight.

Step 6: In the morning you can pull the frozen painting out and now carefully remove the plastic bag (you may have to cut the bag as the paper may be a little hard to get out of the bag otherwise) and place in a safe and flat spot ON TOP of wax paper. The painting will now thaw and start to dry.

Step 7: Marvel at the amazing piece of art YOUR baby created!! Hang it for all to see, frame it to keep for decades, put it in their baby book, whatever you do with it – enjoy it!

These are great to use in cards for loved ones, depending on how much paint was used you may be able to even cut the painting into a shape to glue onto the front of a card. If it looks like it may flake (overly saturated paintings may flake apart), you could cut the shape out of the center of another piece of paper and lay that sheet over as a frame. You could also use these with self-laminating sheets to make bookmarks, coasters, key-chains, fridge magnets, and so much more, the list is endless!

Pampers Easy Ups Training Underwear

Pampers’ new Easy Ups Training Underwear are now my newest favourite piece of toddler gear! We are lucky enough to be partnered with Pampers and get to try them with our two year old who wants to potty train but just hasn’t fully got the concept perfected yet.  From a parent’s standpoint I feel they have thought of all the checkpoints needed for potty training underwear: they offer a stretchy waistband that makes it easy to pull them up and down, extra absorb channels to catch leaks and distribute it evenly (no pools of wetness in one patch), dual leak-guard barriers so that nothing seeps out, easy tear sides so that when they need to be removed without being pulled down the legs you can do so, and they are super soft, just like cotton underwear.  Now for the real tester of them, my daughter, I can wholeheartedly tell you that she loves them and is so excited for HER underwear (she has an older sister and now, the fact that she has her very own, makes her beyond thrilled). She insists on putting them on all by herself and she is so excited by the fact that she can easily pull them down when she has to use the potty, and that is the clincher, she gets excited to use the potty because she can actually do it all herself! If you have ever potty trained, you know that getting your child EXCITED for anything to do with using the potty is pivotal in the process! Although our journey has only just begun towards our girl being perfectly potty trained, these new Easy Ups Training Underwear have got us off on a good start and I have a feeling they will be a big help through this journey!
