LEGO builders extraordinaire

My Bookworm Buddy

We have a pattern all worked out.

picture book together-chapter's worth on our own-picture book together-chapter's worth on our own

I kind of suck at enforcing bedtime, his and my own.  Oh, well.

"I just have a little pile." Yeah, me too, buddy.

Perler Bead Magnets

I l-ooo-ved playing with perler beads when I was younger. Turns out, I still do.

It was CB's idea to bust the beads out this morning, but I stayed at it long after they had moved on to other endeavors.

CB made a star so she could sing Twinkle Twinkle to it every night while she is lying in her bed and BBD made a "friend snake".

I made magnets.

That is a panda, ninjas, and butterflies unless you were uncertain.

I also made photo corners, but my magnets are too big so I need some smaller ones to complete them.
AND they glow in the dark.

Valentine Swap: The Giving

I participated in the Valentine Swap organized by Aunt Peaches. I am so glad she did this. I thoroughly enjoyed making them and waiting to see to who and where I would be sending them. I can't wait to see the Valentines I will receive in the mailbox!

While I made my Valentines, I put out a smorgasbord of Valentine-y materials for my kiddos as well.

Here they are with their finished creations:

Here are mine:

I stamped, colored, and applied glitter glue.
Oh, and I used pop up dots because I love them.

I also included a punny Valentine wish:

{I can't show you my made-for-family ones...not yet}

I am seriously hoping this can be a new tradition. I love it so.

Flower Petal Suncatchers

We gathered flowers from our garden.

My daughter wanted to do this outside which made the project even more enjoyable.

We pulled off the petals and got creating by placing them onto clear contact paper. We sandwiched the petals with another piece of clear contact paper and cut around the edges. We then taped them in the window.

I was pretty pleased with my butterflies.

Please note: The beauty of this project is temporary. The petals will still wilt.

Inspiration for this project was found at The Artful Parent.
