Back in my college days, I worked at the most amazing child care center. It was a dream job for me. I loved it so much that I even worked as a volunteer until they could pay me. I learned so much at that place – things that I have used in my former teacher days, as well as my current mommy days.
One of the most amazing tips I learned was about milk filters.
Now, don’t let me lose you on this one. It’s not quite as crazy as it sounds.
First of all, you find milk filters in a farming store – I found mine at Fleet Farm. If you don’t have anything like this around you, I’m sure you can find them online somewhere. And believe me, it is worth all the crazy looks you will get from the actual farmers.
You can’t tell in these photos (which were taken in the car, with my iPod), but I had lightly colored the doll to be “skin” colored. The filters take better to darker crayon colors, but you could see the skin color in person. (And you don’t have to be a super amazing artist to make these… as you can clearly see that I’m not!)
A quick, easy project that you can do with (or without) your kiddo. I do love quick and easy! Especially when the littles like it.
