One Baking Pan and a Tablespoon of Flour, So Take THAT Walmart!






She was actually singing and talking while playing with this. There's something so nice about the feeling of flour on your fingertips. And clean-up couldn't be any easier, just dust off.

Huge(!) advantage when you need to do dishes. I get the feeling here that she ENJOYED her job on "pre cleanup" haha

The minute I saw her sweet face on my blog roll I stopped by to say C-U-T-E ! ! !

I love that she was singing and talking too. That's my idea of a perfect play date.

Hope your weekend is grand. xo

Adorable.

Good Lord, she's cute. Clearly good looks run in your family.

You know she had so much more fun drawing in the flour than any plastic toy would give her.
I love the feel of flour.

JFK Jean: I had never thought of that, but when she's a little older I'll see if she'd like to help me with the dishes.

Joanna: We have the best time together. Hope you have a good week-end too honey.

TPT: My words exactly.

Vic: Absolutely, Walmart's got nothing on me. We can have a better time around here with a piece of wax paper and an empty tissue box, than with that stupid Walmart video game that makes her cry because she hates it so much. Thanks for the validation pal. You want a cookie?

Miss Eve said...

She's so lovely and adorable :-)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend dear Diane, cheers: Evi

Miss Eve: Thank you, I think I'll keep her, haha.

This is absolutely priceless (: She's a beautiful girl! Beware the ravenous boys when she's older (;

bisous, xx

La C: Au contrare, it's the boys who'd better watch out for her. She already likes to chase them around.

Oh my gosh she is so adorable! The simplest "toys" are always the absolutle best, my baby brother can spend hours playing with simple boxes. Gosh she's precious!
hope you enjoy your week and what's left of your weekend!

Nice! I had to go to the Walmart AFTER work today. That reminds me...I bought new drapes for the girl's room for a dollar for each pannel. I have to go!

Hugs and love,
GEM

P.S. She is SOOOOO cute!!

Mama Kat said...

This kind of sensory stuff is calming and therapeutic for kids. Good thinking mama!

Dominica said...

Look how much she has grown already (compare her face here to the picture on the left on your blog)...
Tell me when she has outgrown her shirt ; I will send her something new (maybe a DIY scarf or something ; I'm in my knitting period at this moment...:-)
Simple things always enjoy kids much more than difficult toys (they always need our help for that) I give Sebastian some pan with water and dishcleaner ( = lots of foam) and a big spoon ... fun garantueed !

Choo said...

She is beautyful

diane said...

Raigan: Hey there baby girl! How have you been? Boxes are a great fun thing too. I didn't know you had a baby brother. Maybe I forgot, easy to do at my age.

Tracey: Strike another point for something we have in common: I loooove my curtains, purchased at Walmart 7 years ago.

Mama Kat: My thoughts exactly, well not quite exactly. Actually, I think you phrased it more articulately than I did, but that's what I was thinking.

Domi: You are right, that other photo is from last year. The shirt still fits though. Thanks so much for sending it. : )
I love your idea of a little pot and some sudsy water. We'll see how it goes, although Babyzilla tends to get a little wild with water.

Choo: Thank you sweetie.
