I’m eating no-bake cookies for breakfast, at 10:00. They have oatmeal in them so I call it a win.
My kids love love love to craft. That’s understandable to us as crafters ourselves, right? So I decided to let every Wednesday be the day they get to do a craft, as it is their early out day. One craft per week + the holidays make it really easy to do this.
Last week we made stone spiders, found via eighteen25 from Rebecca Cooper. Rebecca made a kid-friendly version that we followed HERE. Oh my goodness, she made those stone spiders look so adorable with her wonderful photography. And they ARE cute—just a bit different. My kids didn’t pick out the nice round rocks, they wanted the crazy shaped ones. They loved making them!
This week we made some Halloween shirts using freezer paper and bleach pens. I love that the black turns an orange color! Perfect.
We bought those cheap wood shapes from Joann and painted those last year as well.
We also tried to make this spider together…though it was more work for me obviously.
It is always easy to craft with kids? No way! They get crazy and hyper, and they sometimes fight and get bossy. But for the most part they are so happy and excited, and it ends up a good time spent together.
