Art Project

Hi! Have a project I made for my charge, almost 8 months old that you may want to post. I just used a big piece of cardboard as the base. 1) Hot glued various items with different textures. For example I did several different fabrics, pom poms, popsicle sticks, rattling wrapping paper, sand paper,a sponge, bubble wrap. Other ideas are carpet samples or any number of other things from around the house. 2) Then to reinforce and make sure baby couldn't tear them off I put duct tape around the flat pieces (used Velcro fastener for several items...) 3) to add a little more challenging aspect, and help with additional learning I cut pieces of felt fabric big enough to cover each item and hot glued it at the top to make a flap. That's it, pretty simple idea, could change it up in various ways.

Same. Not to be one of the "negatives" or whatever, but I refresh the blog daily only to see little nothing posts like this. Womp womp. I would totally say I'm leaving, but I have hope.

This site has been monitored and beat down into the ground. It used to be informative, entertaining and a fun pass time... But now...
It is nothing but a bunch of cyber fluff.

i agree. Please Leigh, sell this site to someone who will actually keep up with it like the previous owner. A lot of us were avid fans of this blog but now this one is suffering a pretty slow death...Please someone save this blog :/ or create a new one where can go to...

I agree, I'm not seeing that many posts lately that I can learn from or at least entertain myself an hour a day lol I posted a question wanting advice and it didn't get published or hasn't yet I'm not sure how long it takes,etc
Anyway I hope we can all vent and hear about everyone's nanny experiences!!
