My dearest Heather has let me off the hook on the first of our 52 projects. We figured that since I have already made over 30 Sienna Dresses - at least one in every available size - that I could take a pass this week. That is awesome, since I have been so busy prepping for a craft we have to do in Ran's kindergarten class that I haven't even started cutting out the dresses for Lily Bean. I have a nice 4 day weekend this week, so I promise I will get it done then!
Tomorrow we are the guest reader in Ran's class. With our nice long vacation in Florida we decided that it would be perfect to read a story about the ocean. We chose Seashells by the Seashore by Marianne Berkes.
Along with reading a story we have to provide a craft for the kids to do. While sitting on the beach I came up with the idea of shell necklaces. We spent lots of time collecting shells, which is one of my favorite things to do at the beach! Yesterday I spent hours drilling holes in those shells and today was spent putting them on o-rings. Resulting in a nice pile of....
To make things go a little smoother tomorrow we put a little bag together for each of the kids, containing the elastic, a shell and a bunch of pony beads (half of which glow in the dark!)
I can't wait to do the craft with the kids. We ended up with enough supplies left over that I think I will do the same craft with my Camp Fire USA group. Here is the end result.
