Hello friends and welcome to Crafty Monday. Last week I talked about my peg doll hobby and my hope to better it so I can sell my creations one day. I was very inspired after that post and spent the next two nights making a Spring box. I wasn’t sure if I was going to try to sell it or not but Michael automatically assumed it was his. So….it’s his now.
I used felt to make the flowers that I glued to the bottom.
I think this is my best set yet and it looks neater. Maybe I’m improving 🙂
Last Monday I mentioned we were going to do some weather crafts when we had time. Last Thursday we had a short day of school and had a fun craft day. We used some of the ideas I mentioned last week. Links are on that post.
I put nails inside a paper towel tube. I don’t think I put it enough because it doesn’t quite sound like rain. Anywho, the nails are supposed to slow the rice or bells etc down and make a rain sound.
Then I glued red construction paper to the tube.
That’s when Michael added rice, beans, and bells.
After, he put on modge podge and decorated with feathers, tissue paper, glitter, and buttons.
We simply took toilet paper tubes and painted them.
Then I cut up strips of paper and we glued them on for a handle.
Next, I cut strips of tissue paper and we glued them inside the tube so they’d hang down.
I added pipe cleaners to tie them to Michael’s play ground.
You simply tie a string to a plastic bag and run with it 🙂
Fun Way to blow up balloons
Fill a bottle 1/3 with vinegar
then put some baking soda in a balloon
put the balloon over the bottle but keep it folded so the baking soda doesn’t come out
hold the balloon up to release the baking soda
watch the gas from the mixture blow up the balloon 🙂
You can tell we had fun!
Oh yeah, Michael got his Yellow belt. I’m so proud 🙂
God bless and remember The High King Lives!~Amber Dover
