Play time

For those of you that know me well, Art time for me is playtime. Here are some of the things I've done with the kids recently. This is the one I did. A colored pencil of Van Gogh's, Starry Night. My boy painted the next one that was printed of the internet with his water colors.

We made some 3D art with legos one day.

On another day we played store which is one of their favorite things to do. We pretended that peppermint leaves were dollars.

Turtle cake

I came up with this cake for a special little guys birthday.

A robin's nest

Mr. and Mrs. Robin found our yard and decided that our snowball bush was the perfect place to hatch their babies. I snapped this before they hatched. The kids were excited to get a peek at what was inside.

A few things

This pincushion went to my sister.

This ribbon was finally organized in a way I like. Thanks for the idea Leanne.

A pie with a message for my family.

Quick fix

After hanging a mirror in the girls room I noticed that the mirror didn't cover up a spot on the wall that we probably won't fill it in until we paint the room. I hope to paint soon, but there are many other projects already in the works, so I fixed it another way. I found these butterflies at the graphics fairy a while ago. I printed it, cut it out and made the back stand out more with marker.
