This is a great game for toddlers and kindergardeners. For toddlers it helps with the dexterity of picking up pieces and putting them in the slot of the wipes container "bank" and for older kids it give them an idea about money and denominations.
For the nursery I had a specific look in mind and couldn't find most of what I wanted so I made a lot of things from the gray crib sheets and changing pad covers, to the crib skirt and bumper, the rocking chair pillow and the art.
I tried cloth diapering with my first child without success but decided to give it another shot with the second baby for several reasons including: Health, cost, waste(less), cuteness. This time I wanted to set myself up for success so I talked to several friends that have cloth diapered as well as my sister. There are so many ways to do cloth diapers that it is confusing to say the least.
I found this cute idea over on pinterest and decided I had to do it in our new house. So I bought a can of chalkboard paint and a mini foam roller and got to work. You need to shake the can of chalkboard paint really well before use. I used blue painters tape (1 inch wide) and taped all the way around the perimeter to make a nice boarder. Put down a drop cloth because using the foam roller can cause splatters. Paint 2-4 coats, drying in between then carefully remove the tape. Once it dries for at least 24 hours you will need to take a piece of chalk and rub the entire surface with the side of the chalk. Wipe this off then its ready to use.
