Not-So-Wordless Wednesday - Gettin' Crafty.

My friend Jenn inspired me to do some crafts with my kiddos yesterday. I had this package of pipe cleaners, pom poms, and googley eyes sitting in the cabinet, so I whipped them out and now we're all decorated! (Seriously - that's all we used...markers, construction paper, glue and scissors. I'm not into very involved crafts.)

The top pumkin is Miss G's, the bottom is Mitchell's. He named his "Stinky" as you can see at the bottom of his page. The spiders were fun, too. Mine's on the left, Mitchell's is in the middle, and Miss G's is on the right. She kept knocking everyone's spider head off before the glue dried (shocking, I know), so those took a while to dry before we could hang them up. The kids LOVED it. I think we're going to make some leaf picture placemats today. Anyway - here's how they turned out!

Very cute! And color me impressed. You're talking to the mom who hesitates to get out the play*doh! And simple is ALWAYS the way to go!

my kids love to make puppets out of wide craft sticks (the fat popcycle stick things). You draw a face on them and then use pipe cleaners or leftover fabric to make clothes - yarn for hair.....they do puppet shows with them......good times.

Cute pumpkins-- even stinky is cute!
