We've been pretty busy here doing our crafty thing! I've got a list of projects that I want to do and have everything sorted out and ready to go -- I just need to find time!
But I DID find some time to work on these awesome crafts with my girls!
Valentine Heart Door Hangers:
I took two pieces of foam board and gave one to each girl along with a pile of Valentine foam stickers. And they went to town! When they were done, I poked some holes in the foam with a screwdriver, threaded some ribbon through and let them hang them on their doors!
I found these cute foam mailboxes at Michael's on clearance. They were so cute that I decided to have the girls decorate them in a way that they can use them year-round -- especially with My Marine scheduled to be gone....a lot....over the next few months.
Melted Crayon Art:
I've seen this done all over the blogging world, but never really tried it before until last week. Nudgie didn't like this particular activity, but Nani LOVED it! I loved seeing her creativity come alive!
I wanted to make something special for Nani's Valentine party at school on Monday. So I had these cute pink t-shirts from Old Navy and a fabric remnant from JoAnn's with hearts. Add a little Heat and Bond, and I've got two cute little heart shirts for my girls!
Stay tuned for more crafts coming soon!
