Fudgelet Adventures (part 18): Oil and Water Lava Lamp (and more)

Here is are fun simple activities for when you need a little quiet time. Not quiet time to yourself…I can’t help you with that, but quiet time with a 3 year old. Now, my almost 4 year old is finally calming down again. He was a great young 3 year old, and then a very emotional and cranky 3.5 year old. 3.75 years-4 years is feeling better again. Which is also nice since the baby is more on the move now and I need to focus on him even more than before.

Fudgelet Adventures (part 17): Homemade Car Garage and colors

I made a car garage for the Fudgelet at some point…I think last year? I honestly can’t remember. I don’t think I documented it because I didn’t think it would turn out. It was a bit challenging because I didn’t have a hot glue gun (thanks Dad and M for my Christmas present!) but it ended up looking decent and the Fudgelet still plays with it. Well, fast forward to some point after the Chiplet was born. The ramp broke because he was a little too rough for it and the tape couldn’t hold it any longer. I realized I could fix it with my new hot glue gun. And then I decided to attempt to make a new one for him.

Fudgelet Adventures (part 15): More simple crafts

Are you tired of seeing crafts and toddler activities? Hopefully not. If so, see you next blog post! If not, then welcome back! We made a bunch of crafts and did different activities to help break up the winter days when we were stuck home for various reasons (cold/yucky weather, napping Chiplet, friends being sick, etc.). Here are two that were very simple. The first is because the Fudgelet said he wanted to make an alligator craft. We went on Pinterest to get some ideas, and combined some to make this…

Fudgelet Adventures (part 12): Baking Misses

Often I have the Fudgelet help me make food that I’ve made before so that I know easy ways he can help. But, I also love making new recipes, so sometimes we end up with some misses (or at least recipes I wouldn’t make again). Below we have some of these to share. Let’s start with something that was easy for the Fudgelet to make (he did most of the work) but wasn’t my favorite brownie recipe.
