Hi ladies! I would like to share with you a monthly get-together my friends and I do called "Cocktails and Crafts". We rotate going to one another's homes and the hostess provides a craft for all our kids while the rest of us bring food and drinks! It's like a little party every month. It's fairly low-maintenance since you only have to host once and then everyone else gets a turn and your children get creative and fun crafts!

Now that we're into November, I can start looking forward to Thanksgiving - one of my favorite times of the year! Was skimming through a magazine the other day, and came across some Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving-ish activities that seemed like simple fun. One of my favorites was the pumpkin/gourd decorating. All you need is a pumpkin or gourd and an old magazine. Cut out different parts of the face (eyes, noses, ears, lips...etc) and then glue them to the pumpkins to give them silly faces!

With the summer weather (or what's left of it) I have been thinking about camping, and how great it would be to have some woodsy crafts and activities to help enhance a child's camping experience.

Okay, you might laugh at me, but I am looking for activities for mature 1 year olds. I have my son and two babies that I watch and I love it! But I am looking for more. These are very mature kids tat are all walking (sometimes running!) and have some words. They are all advanced physically so we are open to physical games. We do all of the normal things - put things in the mouth, play in the mirror, take walks and explore all of the leaves, etc, build towers, play dolls, and a lot more...
My name is Dominique. I am new to BlogHer. I have been married for a year and a half and have a 10 month old son. I am a writer and non-profit organizer going for my master's in education.

Been doing some research on acrylic paint, to make a decision as to whether or not it's a good idea for young kids to use it for arts and crafts. So far, I've read mixed reviews. If anyone has any opinions and/or insights on the subject, I'd be glad to hear them!
