This week started out with an all girl sleep over….Woo Hoo!!! I had my 2 girls ages 3(almost) and 4 with their 2 cousins ages 6 and 4….ah yes and my new baby now 9 weeks
what was I thinking.
The girls had a blast, they played princesses….I put the kiddie pool at the end of slide….They made rivers and castles galore in the sandbox…..Then to wash the sand off I started the sprinkler for about an hour (they pointed it toward the swing set and played in the pretend storm)….We got ripped off by the ice cream man (after all the kids had ice cream in hand he claimed he didn’t have any change…uhhh..huhhh….sure)….To finish off the night we watched Peter Pan-return to neverland and had some popcorn. Good times! Good times!
Prayer, praise and worship and bible reading daily.
The rest of our time we pick from the summer bucket list.
They worked there muscles in scrunch and glue I found HERE! (glue, tissue paper & construction paper)
I put some dots as a guide for my youngest. You can also use small or large pieces of tissue paper.
Not the kind of art you want to keep, but good for fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
After doing this project I would say it is probably easier to use smaller squares of paper.
Having a good time painting some plaster magnets with acrylic paint (found these at Michaels for $1.00 each). They came with magnets, 3 colors of paint and a mini paintbrush. Recommended for 4 and up, but she really enjoyed it. This is supposed to be a flower. It took her a whole 5 minutes to cover the whole thing with all 3 colors of paint.
Jada took her time and painted the different parts of the butterfly:)
Since it only came with 3 colors of paint, I showed Jada how to mix 2 colors to make another color.
Here is how they turned out…FYI put plaster magnets up high, the flower has already been glued once!
Jada getting creative
She named this ‘Sunny Day’
