a Good Friday

It was rainy on Good Friday, so the kids and I decided to make some Flower Pots for the Mommies and Daddies. (meaning, I asked the kids if they wanted to do a project and they all yelled “yes” without asking what it was….don’t you just LOVE that kind of enthusiasm?)

So, I broke out the sand.  (Yep, I’m a craft supply hoarder).

Oops. No pink or purple. You think that's not a problem? Then, you haven't met Luci or Sophie

Sophie needed a hand, but she did a great job

Luci spent a long time getting it just right.

Kevin and Ben had similar styles

Charlie was very particular

You pour the sand in to the funnel, and then move the funnel around the rim of the flower pot.

Cooper was so excited when he was done. I'm not entirely sure why he looks so apprehensive.....any thoughts?

Truthfully, I didn't want to let them go home. They looked so pretty on the sill...

    Those flower pots are the greatest! How fun; I can see why you didn’t want them to go home!

      I know. I am trying to figure out how to justify making my own…….

    OK, I know what to make for your birthday now!
    What a great idea. Need to find those clear, acrylic flowerpots now.
    any craft store should carry them, right?
