Pudding finger paint

Looking for an easy craft to do with your toddler when it's too hot or rainy to go outside? Why not whip up a batch of pudding finger paint!  It's so easy: make a box of pudding, then add some food colouring.  Let it set and let the fun begin!

NCircle’s Animal ABCs and 123s (giveaway)

We were sent Animal ABC's and Animal 123's by NCircle to review and I had high hopes of using them to entertain Ashlyn during our recent drive from Ontario to New Brunswick but our DVD player picked that inopportune time to break.  Once we got home we popped Animal 123's in the DVD player to give us some time to unpack and Ashlyn loved it!
