Please overlook the condition of our kitchen table. This is our well loved table as we call it. LOL It's where lots of quality time spent as a family occurs. So it may be a little worn, nicked and painted on, but the memories are grand. Nothing a fancy tablecloth can't cover when company arrives! ;-)
Our first craft was making hermit crabs....
I chuckle each time I look at this picture, craft glue can at times be difficult to get out of the tube! LOL
We lined the bottom of plastic (from a pack of batteries) with glue
Then they used their fingers to spread the glue (cause you know it's fun to get your hands messy!)
Then we added the sand and let it dry....
Then we measured 1 inch legs (using twine)
Add some google eyes and legs...
Kathleen's We realized after putting it together the natural lines in the shell make him look sad. :-(
Love the look of concentration when she was cutting the paper....
Boy, my table really looks rough here! Thank goodness we have a dining room too!
Putting it all together...
Next we made a tray with goodies on it!
These the girls wanted to make pink lemonade. We used clear storage containers, removing the lid and added a large pink pom pom we cut in half. Then put in the straw.
More concentration...love it! Here she is putting the icing on her cookies (red paint on buttons) Then they sprinkled white glitter over top for sugar.
Soda tabs were glued on the bottom for handles. This is Kathleen's.
Hayley's, who of course had to add the fairy detail!
She also went a step further and made Dunkin Donuts! LOL
Thanks for stopping by, we are looking forward to more crafts tomorrow. It will be very hot here tomorrow so I don't think we'll have too much opportunity to get outside. We have to stay busy to keep our minds off the sadness. Tomorrow is Aunt Barb's memorial service and since my husband has not been in his job long ;and it's not immediate family, we are unable to attend. Plus we live over 3 hours away and the service is at 11 AM. This is what makes living far from home very heartbreaking.
Hope you all enjoy your days tomorrow!
