Super Towel

I'm a little obsessed with hooded towels these days.  After my first sewing project of a dress for Emily, I have been making towels.  Not that I really have alot of time to sew but these are so easy!  I used a tutorial from Creative Mommas blog that I found on Pinterest of course.  Here was my first try:

We were invited to a little boy named Cole's 2nd birthday party.  I decided to put my new found skills to use!  I have no idea what little boys like.  I have two daughters, three nieces, I am one of two girls and my mother is one of three girls.  In my mind boys like dirt, worms, super heros and trucks.  Nothing at the toy store spoke to me.  What is something unique that I can give that a boy will like and I actually know how to make?  A super "Cole" towel!

Rainbow Sand

Everybody loves rainbows, me included.  They just make me happy.  It was rainy last weekend so we couldn't go outside.  We didn't see any rainbows and decided to make our own!  Very easy recipe and the kids absolutely loved it.  We have hard wood floors so clean up was a breeze.  I do suggest laying out a sheet if you have carpet as there is no way the rice will all stay in the box!  

Rainbow rice recipe:

  • Buy the super big bag of rice at Walmart.  I measured out about 4-5 cups per gallon Ziploc bag.
  • 5-10 drops of food coloring.  I really just did this by sight until I got the color I wanted.
  • 2-3T of rubbing alcohol.
