Need a new sandwich idea for your little love? Here is something my kids always, and still do, adore.

1 slice of whole wheat bread

Low fat cream cheese

Jelly (I buy the sugar free strawberry)

Directions

Cover the bread with cream cheese. Add a thin layer of jelly. Fold the bread over, and slice into bite-sized pieces for little hands to hold.

Great for on the go, or an easy afternoon snack!

Thursday Arts & Crafts ~ Cling Wrap Creative Painting For Toddlers

clingwrappaint

– White paper

– Paint

– Spoons

– Plastic cling wrap

Using a spoon, allow your child to dribble paint onto the paper. Have them use several different colors.

Place a sheet of plastic cling wrap over the paint (make sure the cling wrap covers the entire surface).

Allow them to use their hands to smooth the cling wrap over the paper. After they have done so, carefully peel it off starting from one corner.

Allow the painting to dry.
