In the Snow

  This winter the weather has been so all over the place. One day it snows and then the next day it rains. Sometimes it snows blizzard like snow covering everything and by lunch it rains and all the snows gone again. L is in love with the snow this year and has been real excited everytime there's new snow to play in.

Snowy day art

Simple art that you can add your own creativity to. E liked stamping circles all over his paper and L turned her circles into snowmen which she later drew faces on and added arms and belly buttons:) We used paper towel rolls cut in half (you can use tolit paper rolls too) dipped in white paint mixed with white glitter to give it a snowy effect.

K's beach rocks shadow box

For Christmas I got K a create your own shadow box craft kit which I mostly bought for the frames with the idea that she could display something of her own in it (the kit came with patterned paper and kind of plain diecuts with 3d sticky squares)
 She searched through her buckets and containers of rocks and fossils she had collected from our many trips to the beach over the past few years and picked out some favorites.
 She then hot glued the rocks to the backing and painted and varnished the frame (the paint and varnish also came with the kit).
The finished result creates a unique fun piece of art.
