Life as a mom of two kids under two can be exhausting. Don’t get me wrong, it can be wonderful as well. Today was a wonderful sort of day.
There were other things that needed to be done today, such as laundry. However, for today the long list of things needing to be done was on the back burner. It was yet another beautiful day and we had some extra finger paint around the house. Unlike the last time we played with finger paints, both kids were awake this time.
How many kids do you have in diapers? We currently have two still in diapers. We’ve found that the best way for us to stay stocked up in diapers is to order them through Amazon. We get the most value out of our money that way since we have Amazon Prime and we never run out. I would do just about anything else in the world besides taking two kids under two grocery shopping with me.
One of the issues with having two kids in diapers isn’t one that you would even think of. Sure, there’s the cost and the constant changing. However, there is also always a pile of boxes in my house. Yes, a pile of empty boxes. So, today we made use of those boxes by getting our toes squishy with paints.
Diaper Box Craft Idea
My daughter had no problem getting messy with it, which is odd because normally she doesn’t enjoy paint the same way my son does. However, she got a kick out of putting her bare little toes into the pile of paint and even signed for more when the pile of paint thinned out.
Tator Tot was slow to join in so I encouraged him to make shapes with the leaves and even showed him how to make tire tracks, that was all the encouragement he needed, soon he was just as messy as his sister.
I had half a mind to cut the box up and frame it but I have the pictures and since I’m not one for keeping the boxes I doubt I would ever really frame them.
What sort of things do you do with the empty boxes?
