Dr. Seuss Week

4 Mar

It’s been Dr. Seuss week at school and today they were supposed to dress up as their favorite character. Emma immediately screamed HORTON HEARS A WHO!!

We went to walmart and raided the craft section. We got shiny paper, tulle, pom poms, pipe cleaners, glitter glue, quick dry glue, and a headband! I already had packing tape, scissors, a toilet paper role, elastic and a sock on hand.

We cut out ears and taped them to the headband, then used pipe cleaners for the hair. I just twisted them together around the headband to stay.

We used tulle, a toilet paper roll, tape, and elastic to make the nose. Paper and elastic for the mask with some pipe cleaner eyebrows!

And a sock with a cut up end for the tail! The flower was pom poms glued together and glued to pipe cleaners that I made into a bracelet for her so she didn’t have something to carry around all day at school. There was a little silver glitter speck on the flower for whoville.

Needless to say she was so excited to go to school today!

Feeling Like A Proud Mama!

4 Jan

Emma has been begging me to do more crafts with her and while we have been scoping out YouTube for some great tutorials and finding some great ideas that are totally age appropriate, I have been eyeing other options.

Yes I did! I signed up Emma to Kiwi Crate to receive a monthly box with a craft inside! We will be posting our boxes, our crafts, and our ratings on all the fun! I AM SO EXCITED!

Have you done a Kiwi Crate before? I’d love to hear about. Leave a comment below!

Crafts and Sand!

4 Jul

While we are enjoying our stay at the beach, I hadn’t on being crafty..

 
Then we found out this store is within walking distance to our house. Actually it’s right next door lol!  

 
You can’t be next to a yarn store and not buy anything!!!
  So I came home with these goodies for me and two craft kits for Emma which I’m sure will come with pictures later 😉
