Apple Oatmeal Baby Cereal Pancakes #FridayFrivolity

Happy Eat What You Want Day, everyone. Today for Friday Frivolity we are celebrating food and I’m going to share with you a way to utilize baby cereal in a fun new way. If you are anything like me then you have tons of baby cereal laying around the house leftover from when your little ones were even littler. They get a couple teeth and start to refuse their cereal so you end up with a bunch of containers and no way to use them. Baby cereal pancakes are a great way to utilize those leftovers. Children who like to feed themselves can snack on these and still get all the healthy benefits from the cereal inside.

Homemade Catnip Mouse Toys for National Hairball Awareness Day – #FridayFrivolity

The last Friday in April is Hairball Awareness Day. Here at Friday Frivolity we are spreading awareness for this unconventional holiday (and celebrating cats, of course). Let’s get into the basics of hairball awareness and later I’ll share a DIY catnip toy project to give your kitty a treat.

Thank you Starlight Baby, the makers of this awesome shirt!

Much of it gets passed through the digestive tract but some of it stays in the stomach and collects. Mixed with digestive fluids it turns into a log shape and eventually gets pushed up onto your probably expensive rug or bedding set because that’s always how it seems to go. Continue reading

Coffee Filter Suncatchers for Earth Day – #FridayFrivolity

Earth Day is April 22 and we wanted to honor that special day and celebrate the phrase “April showers bring May flowers.” The craft I’m bringing you today incorporates both those ideas. This week I made coffee filter suncatchers. It’s a super kid-friendly craft that uses materials you probably already have.

7 Easter Basket Ideas for Toddlers – #FridayFrivolity

It’s almost Easter, everyone! Here at Friday Frivolity we’re celebrating early for this upcoming weekend. If you haven’t thought about what to put into your toddler’s Easter basket this year I’m going to share what my 17 month old got in hers.

What’s in my Easter basket?

 

Everything you see here I picked up at Walmart. Target has adorable baskets too but I found this Mickey Mouse bucket for about $5 at Walmart and I had to get it. The color is like a seafoam green and it’s very big which made fitting all her goodies tons easier.
