Welcome to day two of the Kid Tested, Mom Approved link up party! Thank you to everyone who linked up on Tuesday for The Style File! If you missed that post you can catch up here.
Today Erinn from Strawberry Swing and Other Things is our host and we are sharing a mommy and me craft. I’m SO excited to get some great ideas of fun projects to do with Hudson! Remember to grab the code from the box above and use it in your post…then link up below!
Hudson and I made a car parking lot matching numbers game! When I saw this post by B-Inspired Mama I knew we had to make it. Hudson loves cars so it was the perfect fit!
Here’s what you’ll need:
A cardboard box, 10 cars, scissors, black sharpie, pencil, ruler, and numbered stickers. The three cars in the front were my husband’s when he was a little boy. Love it.
Okay, let me be honest here….it’s hard to do a craft with a one year old very busy boy. Obviously I did most of this! So….first, cut the flaps off of your cardboard box and cut a ramp for the cars to “drive” through. This yogurt box worked perfectly.
I had Hudson “help” line up the cars and choose the order he wanted.
Then, I grabbed my ruler and marked the parking spot lines with a pencil, then went over it with a sharpie. Last, I wrote numbers in each parking spot. So easy!
I grabbed some number stickers that I had in my old scrap booking supplies box (different than the ones I used in the supplies photo…they were too big) and numbered each car.
Then Hudson “drove” each car in to it’s spot. Yeah….not really. He doesn’t really understand the concept of matching the number on the car to the number of the parking spot. But it’s still fun to try! One day he’ll love it.
Love how cute this turned out!
This project is totally Hudson and mommy approved!
I have to mention that Hudson is ONE year old today! Happy birthday to my sweet boy! Birthday post coming next week once I come to terms with my baby growing up.
