Little Man's Car Caddy

I made this a couple of months ago, but am just now getting around to taking pictures of it!

Partially, because it has been played with NONSTOP since I finished it!  He was already asking for "more roads" as I finished the first one and handed it to him.

L. likes to take his cars everywhere, and they kept getting lost (in the car, in his backpack, etc. etc.)

So I made a home for them.  It folds up nicely and keeps the cars snug inside.

It even has a nifty little pocket on the back to keep the felt roads in.

Endless hours of fun creating roadways.

On the open road!

Oh, you want to drive up the back of the couch?  No problem, felt sticks to almost anything!

So what do you think?  Would you like a tutorial?  It's easy peasy and I'm sure your little ones will love playing with this and you will love storing the cars inside it (because I know firsthand how it feels to step on a matchbox car...)

I {heart} Breakfast

Sometimes I'm awesome at making fun food for my toddler.  Emphasis on the SOME in sometimes.

This is a quick and easy breakfast idea that you can do with any shape cookie cutter and simple ingredients!  Throw it together with some fresh fruit and you've got a delicious (and healthy!) meal.

Simply cut out (I use a cookie cutter) a shape out of a piece of bread and spray a small frying pan with some cooking spray.  On medium heat, let the pan heat up and then put the bread in the pan and crack an egg into the shape you cut out.  Sometimes I add a little cheese, salt & pepper to the egg too.  The possibilities are endless.

Cook until the egg is really done on that side and you can flip it over easily without the egg going everywhere.  Flip the egg/toast over and let it cook for a couple of minutes on that side.  You can also put the cutout bread in the pan to toast too (like our heart toast) and put your favorite topping on it.  My little man usually wants "Chocolate!" on his (Nutella).  A boy after my own heart.  No pun intended...
