Bumble Bee


Hailey made this adorable bumble bee at VBS and I just had to share it!

Spotted Butterfly


Hailey made this very simple butterfly and it came out cute.

She painted circles onto a butterfly shape.

Then we used a hole puncher to punch out different colored circles.  She added those to the butterfly and then added some antenna.  (She mixed glue into the paint so that the little circles would stick.)

Watermelon Napkin Holder


We made this cute napkin holder that looks like a watermelon.  It’s perfect for summer picnics!

Paint the inside circle of a paper plate red.

Once the red is dry, paint the outside circle green.

Use a Q-tip to add black dots (seeds) to the red.

Once it dries, fold the paper plate in half.

Then fold the corners in, as pictured, and glue them shut.  I used a clothespin to hold the edges closed while the glue dried.

Cut a slit in the watermelon.

Letter of the Week- Letter W


Finally!  We’re back with a new craft!!  Yay!!  We’ve been busy getting settled into our new house and enjoying summer. It will probably be a while before I get back to posting every day because we’ve been spending a lot of time playing outside and enjoying the nice weather.  So for now I’ll just post a little bit until we get back into doing more activities this fall.

Since I want to finish the alphabet before fall comes- we did this cute W craft that I found over at No Time for Flashcards.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Here’s what you’ll need: construction paper- green, pink and yellow, green marker and crayon, glue and watermelon seeds.  If you don’t have watermelon seeds you can just cut some small black ovals for the seeds.

Cut out 2 Ws.  Make the pink W a bit smaller than the green one.
