Mommy School - Homemade Climbing Toys

About a week ago I saw this cute idea for making a climbing love bug HERE at All for the Boys.  I thought my boys would like this a lot.

I let the boys pick anything they wanted to draw to make theirs.  

We followed the instructions, adding two short straws to the back.  We strung them up on our stairs,  pulled the strings apart, and Ironman took flight.

Baden wanted to make a snowman.  And yes, it's colored yellow.  And yes, that's because of the boyish humor had already has at age 3.

Rex liked this activity enough that he made another one on his own a couple days later.  We strung it up even higher and he was pretty proud of his work.  If you want the details to make your own just hop on over HERE to All For the Boys.

Thanks for stopping by.

That is hilarious...yellow snow man. Little boys are awesome. I am truly thankful to have both a daughter and son. I can't wait to you get to experience the differences yourself. What fun you are in for.

Hey I was wondering if you had any good ideas for valentine boxes. I just can't find anything on the internet and I am just not real excited about making 3 different boxes. I think this would be a fun post on your blog, you seem to come up with darling ideas for everything.

Aw so cute! And we'd probably have a yellow snow snowman here too. Love ironman! Can't wait for the new movie to come out!

We rarely get snow here so fortunately mine wouldn't make the connection with yellow snow he he he!

Hmmm...my kids make theirs in school. I used to use a shoe box as a kid and just decorate it. I think I'd just do that and maybe decorate it like I did one of the valentine cards I showed on today's post. Good luck!

Are the Valentine's Boxes for at school or for at home?
Last year at Target, in the Dollar Section, they had ready made mail boxes that just needed a little vamping to be made more cute. I also did the shoe box thing growing up and we turned them into beds. We covered to box with paper and added streamers on the sides to make ruffles on the bed. The slot for the cards was under the pillow; which was a toilet paper tube wrapped in the same paper or the streamer to become a bolster pillow. One year I made a small box into a puppet theater to put the cards in.
Hope this helps!
