This afternoon the munchkin and I made tissue paper portraits. This is a simple project that only requires a few items you probably have around the house already. The munchkin loved it and thought it was funny to be giving everyone multicolored hair.

A Storm Thundering So Loud (Tap Painting)

Yesterday the munchkin and I tried a simple painting technique that had stellar results. What do you think? Isn't the painting above pretty? The munchkin titled it 'A Storm Thundering So Loud.' He based it on the weather map we were watching last week when an impressive...

Cotton Ball Snowstorm Painting

We are expecting 12-16 inches of snow within the next 24 hours and to say the munchkin is excited would be an understatement. This morning he informed me of our complete itinerary: we're making smores in the fireplace and building a snowman family when it stops snowing. Then we...

DIY Snowman Christmas Ornaments (Handprint Craft)

Using plastic ornaments and a bit of paint, we made beautiful handprint snowman ornaments for my parents' Christmas tree today. My mom is going to flip when she gets these.
