Home all summer long? Long days with kids seem too much? You need to outside get some backyard activities happening.
Okay, here's how it goes. It's super easy and just a little bit messy. ;) Supplies: yarn + glue + bowl Prep : Cover a bowl with plastic wrap. Or use a balloon as your form. ( I think these look pretty .) Cut yarn into long, but manageable, pieces.
By Kate on April 15, 2011 M y two boys are like little squirrels and after every walk they come home with pocketfuls of natural treasures. As a consequence I keep finding little stashes of sticks, pine cones, feathers, stones, soil and acorn cups around the house…and in the washing machine! From their stash I ‘borrowed’ a stick and some acorn cups to make this cool shaker…I’m developing a soft spot for handmade instruments!!
I’ve always had a penchant for sunshine in a jar. Doesn’t the very phrase itself, “sunshine in a jar,” roll off your tongue and fill your mouth with magic? While I’ve never yet found myself a sunshine in a jar, I think we may have just concocted it in our kitchen tonight.
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2011 | Comments: 17 The arrival of my husband's new bass amp has provided me with an enormous corrugated box to work with. I've been hooked on embroidery these days – so I couldn't resist using the cardboard to stitch up some gift tags for Valentine's Day. I cut out a piece of cardboard and pressed a cookie cutter into it to leave an impression that I could work from. You could also trace with a pencil – but I find this is an easier technique to use with kids and there are no pencil marks to erace. Using a blunt needle, pierce holes into your shape.
