Hello friends! It's finally Friday! Woo Hoo! I taught all day, spilled coffee in the car and then came home and burned two pizzas. Rock on though, because tonight kicks off Spring Break vacation for our family! 9 glorious days. We're not going anywhere special this year, but all of us are unbelievably glad to have a valid "break".
Before I get ready to have a real sleep-in Saturday, I want to share with you a fun project I did with the kids after school today. It was supposed to be with the youngest, but my other children decided to take pity on their mama, make my day and join in. Not many of those days left, I know... so I'm counting this as a perfect Friday.
If you want to make a simple Spring Project with your kids, give this one a try.
Crayola Markers (fat ones work best)
Various decorations: google eyes, pipe cleaners, pompoms (I bought this bag at Walmart in the craft aisle)
glue, scissors, tape
5. Use the decorations with the colored filters to create things that remind you of Spring.
My kids are pretty creative on their own, but they ALWAYS rise to the challenge. Like I've said before, the older two enjoy the one-upmanship of each other. They veered away from the SPRING theme a bit, but the results were still pretty hilarious...and impressive ;)
This is what they came up with...
A Spring flower...
A snake, A clam and a jellyfish...
A bumblebee on a flower...
a peacock (back) and a caterpillar (front)...
and a dragonfly!
Happy Spring Break Friday, friends :)
What do you have planned for the weekend?
