I have to plan for 2 of everything because 1. Ty wouldn't let me do anything with just Libby, 2. If he did, he would be a tornadoe in another room, and 3. I might as well start him on this stuff earlier than Libby.
So here we are making a fun craft I found on Pinterest (actually Ashley found it and I repinned it... Thanks Ash!). Here is Ty hard at work:
Adding some "sparkly".
And of course some glitter for her.
I decided to elaborate a bit on the pin by adding a picture of them in the middle and weaving some ribbon in at the bottom. Ty picks up on things surprisingly fast and did a petty good job.
Excited to show off his work.
Can't see his picture too well with the light behind, but it looks great hanging in our window doubling as Valentine decor. Not sure how I feel about boys and crafts, but he has blue foam shapes and glitter and I guess it helps teach them to do things, to create and helps hand-eye coordination?
Libby, of course, did a great job "sewing" on her own.
Showing off her work.
And Libby's finished product hanging in the window:
Here is our project from last week: Lovebugs. They were making these at Smart Toys and Books, but I decided to pass on the outing and the $5 charge and make them at home.
Also from last week, a watercolor polar bear project we called "Polar Sky". Found this one online and thought it would be fun. I remember taking a watercolor class in middle school and using the salt trick for stars. This one turned out great! I'll post the work in progress pics of these at the end, forgot to put them in here.
Here was the work in process: salt in the sky and Saran Wrap for the ice. I used sticky vinyl to make the polar bears instead of painting them on later because I thought it would look cool and then it made it a one sit-down project instead of two. They definitely came out cool!
