Summer fun around the community :)

We don't have any big vacation planned for this summer with the exception of spending a week in Ontario.  I wanted to come up with some fun (and inexpensive) activities to keep Grant busy this summer.  I came up with the idea of making him a "Summertime Bucket List".  There are 24 cards in a sturdy 3" x 3" x 3 1/2"  cardboard box with a magnetic closure.  On the front of the cards there are activities listed for Grant to complete.  The back side of the cards have a place where he can write about the activity...anything to keep up with the writing over the summer!  He is VERY excited about his bucket list and can't wait for summer vacation to start now!

A sample of some of the activities

The cards all neatly stacked inside

A workshop will be planned to help you complete your own bucket list!  In order to participate you'll need to order the box and a paper packet and there will be a $5 charge for the use of supplies.  You will be cutting your own papers but if you want me to cut them there will be an additional charge.  Let me know if you're interested!!!

Crafty Kids Success!

This month's workshop was a big mixture of projects from the past few months while we were trying to get everyone caught up :)  The memory boxes from April's workshop turned out beautifully!  Here's Myka and Payton showing off their matching boxes that they created :)

Katherine had to play catch up this month so she made her "Easter cards" into birthday cards.  She LOVED chalking the stamped images and got very creative with the colors :)

Hard at work!

She was so creative, making her bird a variety of colors!
