I am a mom of 4 kids(11,10,8 and 6)who taught preschool for 2 years.
I hope you can use this blog as a resource to find fun activities to do with your children. Some ideas are new, while others have been around a while. This is a place where I can store all our activities without having to actually have to store them in my attic. I hope you find some fun and easy ideas.
Caity has been making these Paracord bracelets to make some extra money this summer. She has done really well. She has been selling them at the football field during the boys practices.
The directions to make them are on You Tube.
With some of the $ she has made she bought a pair of feather earrings. Well while wearing them less than 2 minutes, the feather fell out. I told her not to worry, we would fix it.
While getting the glue gun out to fix the earring I saw some feathers in my craft closet. I decided to make some of our own.
We used craft feathers, glue gun, small jewels, scissors. For the earring wire, we had another kit to make earring with beads and we just hot glued the feathers on to the wire. You can reinforce that with fishing line or ribbon tied around it.
These I made for me because the boys football team's color is black and yellow.
