**last day to enter the lisa leonard giveaway!!**
have you made anything lately? we've been having fun over here and trying to make something every day.
here's what we've come up with lately:
i had a bunch of bazzill swatch cards around the house and wasn't sure what to do with them. i held onto them b/c i knew i wanted to use them (i wasn't consulting them enough to keep them for their original purpose).
i decided to make miss h a little book of sight words. i added some jump rings and sight words...easy peasy. she loves flipping through it.
we also made this fun paper plate rainbow ring toss that i found on pinterest. click on my pin and it will take you to the original source. it was fun to make AND fun to play. and we had all the materials on hand which is always nice!
i painted the biggest "h" from our mantel aqua. i was tired of the reddish/brownish rust color and i've been feeling our living room really needs another pop of color (besides the red china cabinet). i think this might do the trick!
we started summer of fun this week. i'm so excited and want to thank emilie for sharing this great idea on her craft blog! it's just perfect for my girls...the only modification i had to make was to take out all of the cards for the "activities with dad" category. :( boooo!
and as for my favorite crafting adventure of the week
i present to you our lions. and i use that term very very loosely. we are calling them our limousemonsters.
we started out with great intentions! we were going to make these lions that i found on unschool me:
so we got started. but we soon realized that the construction paper pack i bought last week only had red,blue,green,black,and white. WHAT??
so we improvised.
but soon realized our googly eyes and pom poms were too small for the faces. we already had a major case of the giggles at this point. these lions just weren't looking right.
and then mama had a glue incident:
the bigs were flat out laughing at me at this point. hmmph. harper said "MAMA! you're the biggest and are SUPPOSED to be the best at art!!!". she's clearly never seen my impressive stick figures. i am SO an arteeeeeeeeeeeeeest.
don't act like you're not impressed right now.
it was all downhill from this point on.
sadie was trying to eat the glue, i think...
but we had SO much fun making our liomousemonsters. or whatever the heck they were.
art is so in the eye of the beholder.
happy monday, y'all!
