We're trying something new this year. I'm making a concerted (and calculated) effort to do some craft
and art projects with my kiddos. They have free reign of crayons, pens, and pencils, but I want to have
a reason to sit down with them. Hence Craft Friday.
Here's the cool thing: I'm going to do 2 Craft Friday's a month (every other week)
and include my niece and nephew in the
will be conducting a science lesson and experiment the other 2 Fridays!! Yay!
Now you can all tell me how lucky I am to have a sis that lives next door
and wants to share her life with me. Hannah makes scientific things sound so interesting too!
My children are ecstatic and so am I because science isn't really my thing.
Be still my beating heart.
With this schedule Fridays will be a school day the children will really look forward to.
It will be lighthearted and fun and different from the rest of the week. And fun.
Did I mention that already?
So this was the test-drive day for Craft Friday and yes, I came up with these silly sheep all on my own.
Aren't they adorable?! The kids did a great job! And so did I. I didn't even flinch when glue was applied
liberally by small hands. Well. I didn't flinch very much. It was an imperceptible flinch really. I hope.
Anyhow, all I did was pre-cut the sheep shape, ears and also cut Popsicle sticks in half for legs.
Googly eyes, a package of cotton balls, yarn to hang it by and regular ol' craft glue. Viola!
With so many little hands (18 I think) it was helpful to have all the parts ready to assemble.
I wrote out a verse - a precious truth from John 10, which Susanna decorated for us. Hanging that up with
our wooly flock completed some home decor I will enjoy every time I pass by!
"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow Me."
