I strive to feed my creative hunger, and I try to encourage the same to my two young girls. You are welcome to check out our projects and activities - they are usually simple and inexpensive. Because life is as "Fun As You Make It".

Use What You Got
After a trip to the zoo, my oldest daughter decided she wanted to make animals out of the petals from the 'foam flowers' my girls used to pre-decorate our Christmas tree in this post.
So, I went to gather some simple supplies: sequins, pipe cleaners and googly eyes. The rest was supplied by imagination.
The girls started with two horses and a ladybug:
Then B went on to other free form objects. A 'playground' and a 'roller coaster':
Followed by a hot air balloon and a 'sum-barine' (known to most as a submarine):
Finally, my spider and butterfly:
By the way, do NOT leave B in the room with a new tube of foam glue. Very sticky ending to an otherwise fun craft!
