Sunflower {Kid Craft}


Sunflower {Kid Craft}

Sunflowers always seem to put a smile on my face. {well - flowers in general do} Although sunflowers are commonly associated with summer - I always think back to four years ago this timeframe, when we were passing through Kansas on our move to Wyoming. In between each town, were fields FULL of blooming sunflowers. Some were so top heavy that they were leaning over the fences. Just typing up this very post gives me butterflies all over again. Maybe it was the sense of a new adventure or the morning sickness from being pregnant - regardless, I always think back to that beautiful scenary. {and wish I would have taken pictures!}

Clay Rainbow Fish {Kid Craft}


Clay Rainbow Fish {Kid Craft}

Did you catch my End of Summer - Ice Cream Kid Craft? Well - today's craft somewhat goes hand in hand with it. With summer coming to a close, I wanted to share another kid friendly craft centered around the hot season. {before pumpkins and Halloween start to consume to my blog}

The other day I was cleaning out my craft room, when I came across a half used package of air-dry clay. I didn't really have a kid craft in mind when I found it, but once I came across a stray heart cookie cutter in one of my drawers - it all started to come together. After some debating in my head - these Clay Rainbow Fish came along nicely. I don't know about you but when I think of summer, I think of a beach and fish swimming freely. With a little imagination, kids can decorate and customize their own fishy creations. Then let air-dry and turn the end results into magnets, home decor or whatever your heart desires!
