Fourth of July Toddler Crafting

Before E was born, I had these visions that being a work-at-home mom would mean tons of time for toddler crafts and the kind of organized, planned enrichment activities that Pinterest has millions of.

Umm… no.

But now that I’m technically on maternity leave combined with┬áthe guilt of E not being in any kind of Parents’ Day Out program, the crafting has kicked it up a notch and we successfully completed a Pinterest craft! Huzzah! This was our inspiration:

And this is how it turned out:

At least until we decided that the bottom of the shirt was the real spot in need of circles. I will admit I did do a few of the stamps once E allowed me a turn, which helped to firm up the border of the star.

  1. I want one!! It’s patriotic but not over kill (so if I wore it I wouldn’t look silly!) then again maybe it’s time to get the fabric pens out and do something with all the white onesies I have. Oh maybe tie dye a few of them now that would be fun.
