Dinosaur Quiet Time Playmat

Yesterday I posted my Lil' Traveler Race Track.  Today is the Lil' Traveler Dinosaur Play mat.  I found this post with Serving Pink Lemonade.  I love the little mat she made for traveling on the airplane or car and wanted to make one for my little guy.  I just never got around to it until I had my Race Car Mat idea.  Both of these mats are the perfect size for carrying around. Not Bulky and will keep your lil' guy occupied. Here is how I did it.  
For the Vinyl version I used the layout from Serving Pink Lemonade but used iron on transfer vinyl from Expressions Vinyl. I just picked a few colors and went for it. (Note: When buying vinyl make sure you have a piece long enough to work.) I love this method.  I just cut everything out one night while watching my favorite show and the next morning I put it together. For the back ground I use 2 fabrics. One for the sky and one for the ground using equal parts.  Just sew them together and Iron.  Then finish the instructions in the play mat tutorial.

For the felt version I followed the same method except I really like having my felt sewn on.  So I sewed mine into place instead of ironing

Fold them up and you are ready to go!

Lil' Traveler Race Track Quiet Toy

A few months ago my in laws came into town. They brought each of my kids these little mini race cars.  Each of them pulled back a went for a short drive. They all loved them.  This gave me an idea.  Why not make a small race track to drive them on. So I started coming up with ideas on how to make it and voile here it is.  There is two way to do it.  Purchase the vinyl race track or cut one from felt and sew it onto your mat.  Here is what I did. The cars were purchased at a local place.  But you can purchase micro cars at Target and Toys R Us us as well.

Future MacGuyver Kit {Maybe I Will}

Do you have a guy who love gadgets and gizmos?  If so this may be the perfect gift.  Do you remember Mac Guyver from when you were a kid?? My family loved it.  Know you can watch it on Netflix.  So I sat my kids down and showed them a few episodes.  It is a little hokey looking back but if nothing else it brings back the creativity and problem solving kids need. Andie from Maybe I will came up with this adorable kit for her son and he is in love.  I used it as part of my TV segment. He was thrilled when I brought  it back home. Needless to say it was a hit!  So head on over and check it out!

Huggies Slip On diapers-Review & Giveaway

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Huggies, but all my opinions are my own. #HuggiesSlipOn #pmedia http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

So a few weeks ago I was asked to test out and review the new Huggies Slip On's.  Of course I will!  I have a super Active 2.5 year old. He is like the Energizer Bunny.  He-never-stops-moving!  Finding a diaper that can move and shake as much as he does is tough.  I have always been a Huggies Mom. Nothing has ever worked better.  So trying out the new Slip On's was a no brainer. 
I headed out to my local Target to shop for a box.  We live in a smaller city and our Target is super small.  I grabbed my box of diaper and forgot my coupon!  I decide to head home to grab my coupon (Check out this exclusive $2 off coupon!} only to have my box of Huggies Slip On's sold out underneath me. {Bummer} So I had the wonderful Target employee check to see when there next shipment would be in.  I had to wait till Monday.  So we did our shopping and headed home.  A little sad we wouldn't have our new diapers.

Lacing Boards {I Gotta Try That}

Make your own fun and educational lacing boards for your kids!
These lacing cards will definitely keep little hands busy and entertained in the car, on a plane, at restaurants, church or even while mom's trying to get dinner ready.
Lacing toy's encourage dexterity, fine motor skills, coordination and attention to detail, all while enjoying every minute of it.
I purchased the supplies at the dollar store.
A cardboard puzzle, a foam puzzle and two books with 
the really thick pages.
I started with the Disney book and cut out the board pages.
This one book will give us six lacing cards.
The foam puzzle I left alone, but I took the cardboard puzzle 
and glued the pieces so it would'nt come apart.
Next I took a sharpie and put a dot everywhere 
I wanted a hole to be.
Then we drilled a hole on every dot!
I purchased a few bright colored shoe laces
from the dollar store to lace with.
You will need a long shoelace for each board.
 That's it!
You can let the kids take it from here.
They will have countless hours of fun!
