Stuffed animal storage has been an issue in Roo’s room for years. After trying to keep them all in one plastic bucket, then two…Then I tried hammocks, but we all had trouble keeping the animals in the hammock after taking one or two down. I came across a stuffed animal storage zoo and loved the idea that Roo could see and grab any stuffie she wanted fairly easy. But to buy one was expensive and not quite the dimensions I wanted.
So I made my own! Here’s my tutorial for a DIY stuffed animal storage zoo.
Hopefully, you’ve visited my “about me” section or at least skimmed through the home page introduction and know a little about WhimsyRoo and why it exists. If not, here’s the long and short: WhimsyRoo is a creative arts blog. I write about creative projects both for myself and with my little girl, who inspires me […]
Before having a baby girl, I never knew how many hair-bows one child could own! I’ve been searching for a cute, but functional way to display her hair-bows. Here’s the Princess Hair-bow Holder I created for Roo from a ball of yellow yarn and a cereal box. DIY Hair-Bow Holder Supplies Yarn *affiliate link* Empty […]
I’ve always loved decorating eggs for Easter. Even as an adult I look forward to it every year. This year, I bought some wooden eggs. Pinterest is full of elegant painted Easter eggs that look pretty in a bowl or something for an Easter Centerpiece. I wanted that look, but it needed to be something easy I could do in a few spare minutes.
Did you know March is National Craft month? I did. But I blinked and it was gone…I love to craft, as you can probably guess by now. Now I’m passing that love on to Roo the best way I know how. I’m not sure if she really loves it right now, or just enjoys the uninterrupted one-on-one time with me. But I’ll take it either way!On Whimsyroo.com, I blog a lot about crafts I do with her:
Easter is one of those holidays that is so fun with littles. I love watching Roo as she scurries around looking for Easter eggs and squeals with delight everytime she spots one. Unfortunately the holiday also comes with a side order of sugar. But I don’t want her to miss the fun of opening the […]
Independent play is an important part of a child’s development and should be encouraged throughout your daily routine. I love doing crafts with Roo. We try to find time to do some kind of arts and crafts project twice or more a week. But I have my own grown-up crafts I like to spend time on too. A busy three year old with a short attention span makes it hard to find time and space to do my own projects. Here’s how I use independent play time to find time for my own crafts.
I love making Sharpie Mugs! They’re simple, oh so cute, and completely customizable. Handlettering isn’t a skill everyone has or enjoys, but I love it. I find new fonts to try and add to a new painting or a Sharpie mug when I’m bored. Usually, I avoid drawing on mugs. Mistakes are much easier to […]
