Nature inspired art

We've done a couple of nature related crafts lately. L and E loved searching the backyard to collect sticks and rocks for the crafts.

Painting with water

Not sure why I haven't done this one before. L and E really enjoyed this activity. L painted for the whole time we were outside. We painted pictures, practiced our letters and traced our feet. The possibilities are endless and it dries up in no time with the sun out so you can start all over and paint something new.

Supplies needed:   
water
container(for the water)
paintbrush

K's Birthday

 We celebrated K's birthday over the weekend. I took the girls to play mini golf and then we came back to the house for food and cake. I found this recipe for strawberry shortcake which was really good.

Yogurt berry popsicles

  Everytime we do groceries I've been tempted to buy frozen yogurt popsicles but it seemed kind of a waste of money for the amount that you actually get in a box so we decided to make our own.
For the ones we made, we mixed vanilla yogurt with fresh blueberries and raspberries. There are so many different variations to making these from changing the type of fruit or flavour of yogurt. You can also change the consistancy and combine the fruit and yogurt in the blender.
