Crafting with Dinner

So, yesterday I showed you my craft. Today you have the pleasure of the girls' craft. We were having orzo for dinner and the glue was already out and I've always wanted to do a pasta craft...

Cleaning up is way more fun when you're wearing a tutu.

Grown Up Gift Tag

Last weekend I was invited to a very fun lingerie wedding shower for Alex, our part-time nanny. The girls had a blast playing with all the ribbon while I managed to make this gift tag.

When I got out the glue, the girls couldn't contain themselves any longer - more on their craft tomorrow...

Crafty Birds - The Cutest Robots Ever!

The girls have become master robot makers - they want to make robots and take them to Eric's work. As a result, Eric's office is fast becoming a sweet gallery of the girls' developing creativity. The robots we make really go quite well with the robots he makes.
Here are Kira and Nola's cutest robots...

Materials Needed:
Cardboard Boxes
Decorations (we used pipe cleaners, buttons, shiny paper, lolly pop sticks, cupcake papers, and tissue paper)

We tapped the box shut and used the glue to stick the foil to the box. We then taped the rough edges of the foil down because these girls LOVE tape!

Next we decorated the robots to our heart's content.

The girls made the following:
Curly hair (of course) with pipe cleaners and tissue paper
Ears with cupcake papers
Eyes with buttons and shiny paper
Feet with lolly pop sticks

Cupcakes for Daddy

The Curly Birds were so sad that Eric had to work last weekend that they made strawberry cupcakes to cheer him (and them) up. It worked!

How long can you watch your children play before they notice?

Sunday Sundae - Ice Cream Party

We welcomed the coming of summer with a good old-fashioned ice cream social. I never knew how much fun 20 kids under 5 could be. I can't wait to do it again next year!

Finger Painting Fun

Painting, paddling, pizza and a good southern down pour - a perfect neighborhood play date.

Hello Again

Summer traveling has slowed down my blogging. How nice it was to be welcomed back by lovely messages from MoMs of Multiples and our Nest of Birds craft featured on the Crafty Crow.
