*Sorry this is late everybody! Apparently I need to review what “am” & “pm” mean. I totally scheduled it for the wrong time!*
Well, here we are at another week. And this one is a pretty important one. But before I get into that, lets review the winner and who’s going home from last week.
Bessie @ Besserina pulled in the most votes with her Primitive Burlap Pumpkins.
I think those are totally adorable! And burlap just seems so “fall” to me.
Although it was a tight race, we have to let Emily go this week.
I thought her Candy Corn Corn was really clever! She has a bunch of other great stuff on her blog, Nap Time Creations. You should go check it out. You won’t be disappointed :)
This week is a big one – we move from 4 crafters to 3. This week determines who will go on to be able to win some fabulous prizes from our sponsors.
The theme this week is “Kids Can Do” and the poll will be open until Friday night. Good luck ladies!
Craft #1 – Fingerpainted Lyrics Art – Jessica @ Mad In Crafts
Craft #2 – Drive In Movie Night - Carlee @ Lady Bird Lane
Craft #3 – Little Bird Countdown Board - Celeste @ Celestial’s Creations
Everyone hates waiting for exciting things. I hate waiting for packages to come in the mail, for the next book in a series to come out, and for my trigonometry homework to be finished.
For kids, it’s worse. Kids wait for birthdays, play dates – even garbage day. It seems they are always asking when something is going to happen…over and over. It’s especially rough when they’re young enough to remember something is coming, but too young to have an understanding of days, weeks, and months.
A countdown board is a helpful way to help kids understand how much longer they have to wait for something.
And if you add a few other features, they can be quite versatile.
This Little Bird Board is a wall hanging that is also light enough to be used as a lap board. Her body measures around 2 ft” wide.
Little bird’s body has 35 magnetic circles outlined with colorful embroidery. She also has a pocket for storing the number pieces.
The felt number pieces will stick to any of those magnetic spots.
Because her magnetic circles have been placed into seven columns, Little Bird has the possibility of becoming a calendar when her owner gets a bit older.
A few added math symbols let Little Bird be a fun way to practice some math facts.
Until then, we’ll probably just flip over the numbers and match the colors.
Craft #4 – Thank You Cards - Bessie @ Besserina
Using mama’s sewing machine was their favorite part!
