Kid crafts are a regular thing in our house. Coffee drinking is also a regular thing in my world.
Raise your hand if you have become a coffee connoisseur since becoming a mom? (You don’t really have to) Good to know I am not alone. Coffee has definitely become my pick-me-up drink since I finished nursing the kids and no longer drink pop- I’m from Ohio and refuse to call it anything else. One morning, as I was using the last of a coffee canister, my mind started brainstorming ways to use the empty canister. Since I enjoy kid crafts I knew it had to be something that involved them. As I washed their little hands after breakfast, the lightbuld went off. A flower pot displaying their hand prints… afterall it’s only for a moment their hands will be small enough to craft such a keepsake.
Life is full of chaos. There’s no way to avoid it, which is truly difficult to accept for someone with a Type A personality. I like things to stick to a plan and no matter how hard I try, when things start to go awry, I stress.
I found these awesome paint tools and could not wait to test them out with Moose and Fox. Last Friday, I gathered our paints, paint tools, some white poster board, and clothes pins to hang our “canvases” and gathered the troops to head outside.
