Making Snow Dough

It’s Winter, and even though it’s a BIT warmer than we’re used to, we’re still getting into the seasonal spirit. After reading “The Snowstorm Surprise” By Richard Scarry, we were itching to play in some snow ourselves! Since Mother Nature wasn’t really cooperating, we decided to take matters into our own hands, and make some 2 ingredient “Snow Dough” to mold and squish.

Making a Library Book Bag!

2018 is a monumental year for Guppy! This past June she finished 3rd grade at her elementary school, and will be starting 4th at the middle school in september. When we were doing our summer “purge” of clothing, to get ready for school shopping, we came across her old elementary school t-shirt, and she was torn on what to do with it. She knew she wasn’t going to wear it anymore, but was still pretty hesitant to give it away, so we came up with making this bag as a compromise! It was an easy project for her to do, and now she has a bag to carry her books to and from the library (and, let’s face it, a bunch of other junk is going to go in it, too!)

Book Craft: Page Magnets

While we enjoy relaxing days and cuddly mornings, my family is more of a get up and do something type of crowd. This craft is perfect for those “move a lot” days because it’s quick, easy, and useful! Feel free to be creative if you don’t want to destroy a book for the sake of art! Use a yard sale or dollar store find, print some images off the computer, or do what I did and get weird! After Valentine’s Day, I bought a few boxes of valentines in all different themes, just in case we wanted to use the stickers, or cards for craft time. That sure came in handy today! Instead of destroying our only copy of Cat in the Hat, I used one of the Valentine’s Day cards, and a couple of the stickers to achieve the same effect!
