With St. Patty's Day coming up and rainbows being one of the common images of
the holiday, I figured this would be a great chance to work with my son on his
colors. Building a rainbow picture is good way to go over the different colors
and also to teach him to follow directions. I love doing activities together
that keep him busy and not just sitting on the couch watching Mickey Mouse
Clubhouse. And the best part about doing these activities, is that he has fun
and learns new things every day!

St. Patrick's Day is quickly approaching and I am trying to not get lost in the
craziness of day-to-day life once again and end up with no decorations up until
the week of the 17th. That's why I have made a vow to set aside some time each
day to get my decorating done. And what better way to start than with this cute
little sign that I hope brings some good "luck" and fun to our house.

For Valentine's Day, my son absolutely LOVED making the coffee filter hearts.
(You can see the post here. ) So, I figured I would let him make shamrocks the same
way for St. Patrick's Day! Colton loves any excuse to play with markers and I
love any excuse to get him to sit still. Not to mention that these shamrocks
turned out super cute!

I have to admit that I have been very busy in the last several weeks and
decorating for Valentine's Day has been pushed to the back burner. However, I
was determined to not skip the holiday completely. As you saw in my previous
post, my son and I had fun making Valentine cards! Colton was so cute making
them and we will definitely do this again next year.
Even though the last few weeks have been hectic in the Conley household, I
really wanted to get a few decorations up before Valentine's Day was over. I
came up with some really cute, really simple ideas. Check out my
"VALENTINE'S DAY" page under the "Holidays" tab to see them.
There is nothing that I love more than spending time doing activities with my
son! He loves exploring new items, textures, and concepts through hands on
play. And the things that he has learned from them are amazing! Not to mention
that I have gotten some really cute keepsakes in the process!
Valentine's Day this year, I wanted to have Colton make cards for his
grandparents and I wanted to go beyond the normal, give him some paper and
crayons and let him color one. So I decided to come up with something that he
could do that was different and fun! Last year, I saw something on Pinterest
about coffee filter art projects for toddlers. I searched through my boards and
couldn't find the pin (possibly because I have thousands of pins), but I thought
how hard could it be to figure it out myself. And they turned out awesome!

Valentine's Day is all about telling the one's you love how much they
mean to you. And what better way to do it than to "deliver" it in these cute
little felt envelopes. Write a little note and stick it inside with some candy!
How simple is that? And they are so darn cute!
