Nuby Clik-It Insulated No-Spill Cool Sipper Review

Image
Here is a review of another awesome sippy cup that not only DOES NOT leak but it keeps your little ones drink COLD! :) This has turned into one of my son and I's favorite cups. He likes the designs on the outside and it's easy for him to drink from.. And I like that it doesn't leak, keeps his drink cool, and it's so easy to clean!

Baby Food Jar Pumpkins!

Image
I figured with Halloween coming I would start posting some Fall/Halloween themed crafts. So, here is my first Halloween craft!

Baby Food Jar Pumpkins!! :)

Here's what you will need:
- baby food jars ( we used 3 ) you could use any size jar you like.
- orange construction paper ( and black if you would rather cut out eyes, nose and mouth for your pumpkin and glue it on
- sharpie ( we used it to draw the face on ) 
- green pipe cleaner
- glue
- tape

This was my son's favorite part.. Rip up some orange construction paper and wrinkle up the ripped pieces.. Then stuff the baby food jars!







This next step you could either draw your pumpkin face on with a sharpie or use a piece of black construction paper and cut out your face pieces. I chose to do the sharpie. My son was fascinated sitting on my lap watching me draw the face.




Next is the green pipe cleaner. I cut the long piece into three smaller pieces and then curled each piece around my finger. I tried gluing the pipe cleaners onto the lid b…

Homemade Bath Paints

Image
This is one of my favorite activities my son and I have tried so far. :) Homemade Bath Paints! Simple to make and few ingredients. You're number one question will probably be "Do they rinse off the tub easily?" the answer is "Yes!"

Here's what you will need:
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 4-6 pumps of baby shampoo
- 2-3 drops food coloring
- 1-2 tsp water
- containers or a tray for your bath paints ( I used baby food jars I saved )

We only made red the first time so the measurements above won't make a lot of bath paints.. You can adjust the recipe to make larger amounts. :)





Nuby Sport Sipper

Image
When I got the opportunity I was very excited and anxious to try this sipper with my son. At first it was a great sippy, no leaks or spills! But, my almost 2 year old son figured out how to take the clear spout off and spilled his watered down apple juice everywhere in our car. I was disappointed. So needless to say this cup will be used when I can see him at all times, no more in the car.

About the Nuby Sport Sipper:
Sized just right for little hands to gripEasy to use sport sipper straw that is durable enough for your child's newly formed sharp teeth.No spills or leaks ( unless your son is like mine and is able to take the spout off ) Available in a variety of cute designs






My Final Thoughts
The Nuby Sport Sipper would be a great cup for my son, if only he couldn't take the spout off. We will still be using this cup just under closer supervision.

It's perfect for his little hands and gives him the freedom to feed himself without making a huge mess!

Apple and Grape cars!

Image
My son loves fruit and cars so what better thing to make than apple and grape cars?! Keep reading to find out how to make them.

Here is what you need:
- grapes
- apples
- toothpicks
- knife or scissors to cut the toothpick in half and to cut the fruit

First, I washed the apple and grapes off, then started cutting the apple into slices and a few grapes in half. Next, cut a few toothpicks in half with a knife or scissors ( I used a knife ). Finally, poke two cut pieces of toothpick through the inner part of the apple ( the part were the core was ) then add your grapes on each side. 

Here are some pictures so you can see what it looks like after.
