Glue Paints & Other Boredom Busters

With all the fun we’ve been having over here, I’ve neglected to keep you informed about what I’ve been up to at my other gig.  First over at momtastic, C and I tried out what may be the most brilliant art activity ever.  He absolutely loves using these glue paints (asked for them three days in a row after we made them).


They’re the perfect antidote to those days when you just cannot face trying to clean up a feisty toddler yet again.  Plus, with all the back to school sales going on, you can score glue for just a few cents right now.  Check out all the details here.



Second, I’ve got this round up of boredom busters – perfect when restlessness strikes and you’re fresh out of stimulating activities.  The best part?  No special craft supplies required.
