We decided we would host pizza & pumpkin carving this year. And what a grand time it was! As the pile of shoes show, we had a great turnout! We had 10 kids & 12 adults over.
I found this cute post by MmmCrafts called TravelWees and decided I needed to try it! And I have to admit, I love how she turned out!
What a fun little craft to make. This one is a gift and I look forward to seeing where she goes!
Ater our last slime we decided to try another one that would stretch better. So this time we tried Saline Slime by Little Bins for Little Hands. This is by far our favorite slime so far! (Easy to make, not too sticky/ messy).
We decided it would be a fun day to paint, but wanted to try something new. So, after a bit of Googling we decided to try painting with coffee.
I made up 3 cups because I didn’t want to miss out on the fun! Then we grabbed some leaves and acorns with our paper & paint brushes and got to playing!
Today we are having our electric panel replaced, so that means 4-5 hours without power. Which, we spend a lot of our time outside so it’s not that big of a deal. But we have decided to make it an “Adventure Day”. Part of our adventures is doing something new. So one of our new things was Sparkle Thinking Putty. We used the instructions by Little Bins.
What a fun morning surprise for A & S! I created a fun, with moving parts, bulldozer!
We have recently moved and are still getting fully situated in the new house. Part of that includes setting up areas for the kids. We used to have a magnetic board in the kitchen for magnet play, but this house does not have a place for that. So today I created a 2’x3′ magnetic wall in each of the kids rooms.
As summer is coming to an end and it is getting to be coat/sweater weather here I am reminded that A & S do not have a ton of experience with buttons. So I have created a felt button chain project that incorporates buttons!
So A has been requesting to paint lately. So we took a trip to Michael’s and grabbed some supplies as ours were running out. We ended up finding a multi-pack deal on some square canvases. And my wheels started turning. With a half formed idea in my head we got to work! Continue reading
This is Spring break for our County. So it means it is a good time to host another event.
Today was Butterfly Chromatography. Markers are made up of different colors. when you put them on some paper and have water travel up the paper, the different colors separate.
We started off with the story Gotta Go Gotta Go! I love seeing how excited and engaged the kids are!
