Toilet Paper Tube Crown

Just found a great tutorial for a super easy kids craft. This toilet paper tube crown makes for a simple project young boys can do on a lazy day. You’ll need:

1 Toilet paper tube

1 Piece of lace (or other scrap fabric)

1 Craft gem (plastic or paper)


Paint brush

Glitter glue

Inexpensive Helmet

Found a site today with great instructions for creating helmets out of rubber foam. The result pretty decent and life like. I threw one together in 1.5 hours. It looks decent considering I made lots of mistakes.

Judging by the way he’s jumping around, Sir Ian likes this helmet a lot:

Cardboard Castles

We’re experimenting with cardboard this week. Instead of listening to Sir Ian whine about all the cool castles we see in the toy store I figured we could make out own. Not too bad for our first attempt. In fact, it was quite fun. Can’t wait to decorate our little project.
