Another idea from Pinterest, of course.
I was reading Attack of the Twins: New Artwork that I’d discovered on Pinterest. I probably wouldn’t have noticed it, but we both have daughters named Lily, so it definitely caught my eye.
The mom got canvas, painters’ tape, and finger paints. She taped off each child’s name on the canvas. Then, she let them paint.
I modified the project a little bit with the age differences in my children. Lily had a bigger, more complex project. Navy’s was smaller and more simplistic.
Each night, after the kids go to bed, I try to make a couple of new bows.
While Michelle reads “The Hunger Games,” I sit on the living room floor making my little masterpieces.
Since I’ve been working so much with ribbons to make pretty hair bows, this picture seems fitting.
When we went to Michael’s this weekend, they had an associate helping with a couple of crafts. Lily picked the yarn doll. I asked how to make this because it looked pretty easy, and Lily really liked the model they had.
I bought a set of looms today and a roll of yard. I can’t knit to save my life, but I wanna make hats for the kids. This seemed like a good alternative.
I had to look “how to make a slip knot” up on YouTube. That was a total Girl Scout fail.
I really hope that, with some practice, I will be pretty good at faux-knitting hats that I can get the scarf looms, too.
