We arrived home from the beach with A LOT of rocks or as my daughter put it "a whole rock collection".
And so with a little hot glue, miscellaneous craft supplies, and our imaginations we got busy creating.
CB made this adorable butterfly
and this fun and funky "yellow stripy zebra".
The boy was more interested in the big stick. (Sticks are cool too. Follow your interests, babe.) So some of our pieces became a little more collaborative than usual.
He made these "alien big eyes" and with his approval I added the nose. I dig it-it's like a friendly swamp creature peeking out at you to say hello.
He made the clouds, I made the rainbow-this rock was the perfect shape, I found this to be kismet.
This is BBD's butterfly (I only helped with the gluing and cutting for this bad boy)
You can also go a more natural route and make a little something like this:
good time and that is really what it all is about.
Totally unrelated side note:
I told my teenage nephew that we made these and he texted "Sure, do the fun stuff when I'm gone." I replied, "I can't stop being cool, just because you go home." And he said, "Yeah, u can." Thereby inadvertently admitting that I am cool! Triumph!
Please check out some of these fabulous linky parties. Wonderful ideas and inspiration await! Thank you!
