Pinterest inspired toddler activity!

Who loves Pinterest?  I admit, I never wanted to sign up for this time suck, but once I did, I could never turn back!  I am hooked!!  I love all the creative ideas, tutorials, recipes, children's activities...I could go on and on. 

I recently discovered this activity, & knew I had to try it with my sweet little Lincoln.  Here are the supplies needed [all of which I had inside my house].

uncooked spaghetti

It's all really simple.  I just made two "bases" out of the playdoh, & stuck some uncooked spaghetti into them.  Next, I showed Lincoln that he could stack his cheerios onto the spaghetti :)

He LOVED I thought he would :)

It seriously occupied him for quite some time.  I wish I got a picture of his expression when I showed him the first cheerio stack around the spaghetti...he was amazed! 

With the colder weather approaching, it's nice to have a fresh new indoor activity....& it works on his fine motor skills!  I hope you try this with your toddler.  Let me know how they like it :)

  4. Awesome!


    Great time to start working on his fine motor - he will have less problems when he starts school!!

  5. What a cute idea! I think my little girl would just LOVE this!!! I must be one of the only people still left on the web who doesn't have a clue what Pinterest is! I mean, there are so many people who LOVE it, but I just don't understand the concept. I think I'm going to have to go check it out at some point. That and Angry Birds... LOL

    I'm stopping by from the Wednesday Window Hop! Have a wonderful week!
