Spring Toddler Boys Clothing Tips

Spring is here and it is time to buy your toddler boys spring clothes. It is time to put away those sweatshirts and sweaters. YEAH!!!! It is time for sunny warmer weather. That means it is time to buy your little guy some new clothes for the warmer weather.

I am a very picky mom. Especially when it comes to my son and how he dresses. I have decided to share “the must haves” for Spring clothes that will complete his wardrobe. With these items you can have the ultimate Spring wardrobe and your toddler will be sharply dressed at all times.


You can never go wrong with jeans. Especially, when it comes to toddler boys clothing. This is the perfect base for their Spring clothes wardrobe. I prefer to get quite a few pairs and in different styles and washes. You know how it is, you cannot have enough jeans.

  • Carpenter Style
  • I love this style of jeans. They have the pocket on the side and just look so cute!! This is my favorite style. My toddler boy's Spring clothes wardrobe has lots of these jeans!!

  • Classic Style
  • These are your basic classic 4 pocket jeans. This is the most common style of jeans. They are a nice change from the carpenter style once and a while. Look great with certain styles of shirts.

* Washes *

I like to get three different wash colors in the jeans. For those of you who do not know, the wash is the “color” of the jeans.I prefer these three washes:

  1. Dark denim wash
  2. Light denim wash
  3. Mud wash

The mud wash is my favorite because they have a light brown hue to the jeans. This color looks fantastic with browns and whites. Must Have for your toddler boys clothing!! There you have the basics for the jeans. Now let’s move on to the tops and t-shirts.


  • White t-shirts and tank tops.
  • These are the best. You can never go wrong with these. The white t-shirts are especially universal. You can wear one with a polo shirt or else you can wear them alone. Get some white tank A-shirts also. These are great to wear under shirts or else you can use these in the summer with a pair of shorts!!! Inexpensive and a must have for every toddler boys clothing wardrobe.

  • Polo shirts.
  • My favorite!! These are perfect for Spring. Paired up with some jeans and you’re ready to go. I will buy all different colors and styles. You can find polo shirts fairly inexpensive. They make any toddler look like a "little man". Love them!!

  • T-Shirts
  • These are great too! These are perfect for the warmer weather. Paired up with jeans your toddler is adorable. You can find so many cute, cheap t-shirts. You can find solids, or graphic tees. Even let your little guy help pick out a few! They can be great little shoppers.


This category is quite simple for me. There is only one type of shoe that I will buy for my little guy’s Spring clothes wardrobe.

  • White Sneakers
  • That is correct. I only purchase white tennis shoes for my son, except for his play shoes. They match everything he is going to wear. I know what you’re thinking. All white shoes for a toddler? Yes even toddlers can have clean white shoes. Check out my cheap kid’s clothes tips page on how you can make this possible. I have a 3 year old myself and it is possible!!!


You have to have a lighter jacket for Spring. I like to have 2 or 3 jackets in my toddler boys clothing. Remember you can also use a hoodie from his winter wardrobe. These are great too!! That’s it!! With these items your little guy will be ready. I get excited when it is time to buy Spring clothes. It means that warmer weather is headed our way. Good Bye Snow........... for now!!

Mothers Day Toddler Craft

Toddler Mother's Day Craft

Hand Print Bouquet

If your toddler enjoys getting messy, a hand print bouquet may just be the perfect Mother’s Day project. Purchase some finger paint from your local craft store, have your child make several hand prints on a piece of paper. Once the paint is dry, use a marker to draw a stem from each hand print to create a bouquet of hands. You can even add a flowerpot or vase to complete the effect. If you have several children, ask each child to contribute a hand print to the bouquet. Either way, Mom is sure to treasure these unique toddler mothers day crafts.

Our Monthly "Green" Tip

Our Mom of Green has amazing tips even for Spring. Here is what Tina had to share with us for this month....

Green Tip:

Green Spring Cleaning Tips by Tina

  1. Open Those Windows! The easiest & the safest way to get the dirty air out and the clean air in is to open those windows! Plus, the breeze is an added bonus!
  2. Do away with the air fresheners! Air fresheners contain chemicals which have super negative effects on our bodies, ie skin, eye and respiratory irritation. The Aerosol air fresheners are more caustic & harmful; the little air borne particles can lodge themselves in your lungs & cause nerve damage! Add some fresh flowers to a room for a natural fragrance or burn a natural soy candle.
  3. Use cleaning products made from naturally derived ingredients (Contact Tina for suggestions on amazing cleaning products made from naturally derived ingredients!) Also, try baking soda & vinegar!
  4. When switching from toxic cleaning products, dispose of them properly and do NOT pour them down the drain. You can find out where you can take your toxic products locally to dispose of them safely!
  5. Don't use paper towels all the time, it's a waste! Use rags and natural fiber sponges to clean instead. Always have a clean hand towel sitting by the kitchen sink so you can dry your hands on it, instead of using paper towels every time you do something in the kitchen!
