Toddler Fun: Paper Roll Painting

 Wild Man wanted to paint --
as in RIGHT.THAT.MOMENT.He wouldn't take no for an answer, NOW.
and of course, I couldn't find any paint brushes. anywhere.
Let's just say there were tears.
and flopping on the ground like a whale.
and more tears.
So I did what any mom would do -- I used what I had in my hands.
Yes, I was emptying the trash cans --
and I had a toilet paper roll in my hand! ;)

and with a few cuts, it instantly became an amazing paintbrush!
Mama's trash is a toddler's treasure, right?
It was PERFECT for his little toddler hands!
Wild Man loved it --
we'll definitely be doing this again!

  1. What an awesome blog.. I think I may have to "borrow" that idea. I have a 1 year old who has taken to biting off the sharpened tips of crayons!!

    Thanks for sharing

    1. Kids are SO crazy! My 11 month old LOVES to eat crayons! There will be a lot more fun ideas too, so I hope you stick around! I'm starting "toddler school" at home in September - and I'll be posting new activities every week!
