Because Kristine is cleaning out all kinds of junk....we get this assignment: "Show me your favoritest ugly creation that was made just for you. For those of you that don’t have nieces, nephews, children, teenagers…*cough* bitch *cough* and have nothing to post, show me your ass. Yes, you heard me right. Your ass. Pull em down and take a picture for us. Oh wait, you suddenly remember a knick nack or crazy picture a kid drew you. Thaaaats what I thought."




Since I am not up for sharing pics of my back end for all to see, I found these pictures of Livi from her Ooyey Gooyey art class. These are what we made last week.








This is a stepping stone made out of plaster of Paris. We covered the top with wax paper so she could press her hand into it. Then she put those little glass pebbles all over it. The hand is covered with colored sand. She was really upset they didn't have purple sand. I don't know if you can tell, but I tried to mix red and blue sand.....pretty basic concept you learn in preschool right?? Well, it doesn't work with colored sand. You just get red and blue sand ....all mixed up! It has been so wet and humid here though that it still hasn't even dried a week later.




When Mike gets home, we are going to dig out some grass and do some more landscaping....maybe just maybe she will forget about it by then. If not, I am sure we could find a spot for it in the new beds.




The other thing we made last week was this bug. It is made out of a toilet paper roll with colored polka dots all over it. We were getting glued to the tube until I realized I could put glue on the tube and roll it in the dots. Way easier!! When she finished, she flew it around the room singing the song to Miss Spider. I don't even know where this one ended up because it is not in her room. Better than that, I have not been vacuuming up all those dots all over the house!





Little side note on the sleep problems I have been having with her.. ..after reading this book, (Thanks nice friend J...I'll be getting it back to you in a week or so), today she has managed to sleep in her own bed for a two hour nap and go to bed, stay in her bed, and go to sleep on her own in less than an hour. Yes, she came out 7-8 times, but she eventually went to sleep on her own. KNOCK ON WOOD!!!

happy Friday y'all!

Stepping stone. Good Spf. I played too. (I am going on vacation Saturday for a week, so when I get back I will do a post on the pizza crust.) The bug is too cute too.

You know, I dont think we do enough crafts...mostly because they get eaten or stuck in the hair.

I played.

The bug is such a cutie!

Sweet Boy and I made one of those stepping stones for his Grandma for her birthday. Didn't come out so great but Grandma thought it was a masterpiece!

Ohhhh. You have to find a way to make that set. Poor little thing. She'll be heart broken after the time spent.

OK...maybe I can't see the real 'beauty' in the stepping stone but it actually looks kinda cute from this angle!!

I have 3 of those stepping stone kits and I haven't worked up the nerve to actually start them with the kids.

I'm going to have to try that book. If we can get our ids to pt themselves to sleep, it will be a miracle!

Wax paper? How come I never thought of that?

We still have stepping stones made out of cement that I had my Girl Scout Troop do. That was an interesting project!

Haley-O said...

I love the bug! And, I thought that first craft was a pie... looked good! Good luck with the sleeping!!! :)

Good luck with the sleep-sort-out!

I love your blog! BTW, do newbies always leave such long posts when they play SPF ;-)

Wishing you a happy weekend,
