"For me, the best work is passionate, fresh, well designed and well executed - the perfect balance of art and craft."
It's taken a couple of days to unwind and clean up after the boys left on Saturday; however, I did want to do a quick craft wrap-up from "Aunt Jana Camp" last week. Although most of the activities we engaged in throughout the week involved toy cars, the Wii, or the swimming pool, Thursday was designated as "craft day"--with somewhat of a snake theme.
We used watercolors to paint snake coloring pages which I printed from HelloKids.com.
We used freezer paper stencils to make snake t-shirts, using this process from Say Yes to Hoboken.
We also bought neckties from the thrift store and turned them into stuffed snakes, like this tutorial from Skip to My Lou.
We drew and colored a drag strip/mud hole for the matchbox cars to drive.
And, last but not least, we created a "Welcome home from your trip!" banner to hang from the balcony.
Needless to say, Thursday was a busy day!
