Craft Day

Today, we unexpectedly stayed home due to some cancelled plans. But, we had so many things on our craft list of wanting to accomplish, the morning flew by!

The day started out with chocolate chip pancakes, which is a craft in itself when cooking with a 2 & 3 year old. Therefore, there are no pictures of this. :) But, I let the girls eat at the counter, which is a major treat! Immediately after this, Emma asked if she could teach Lily letters.... how could I say no?!?!

Then, on to painting. This took up the majority of our morning. We painted our tin cans to later make into drums (they were kind of lame, but fun to make), made Christmas gifts to be mailed to Grandma & Grandpa and GG & Pa, and then had just painting time. I think this will be a go-to activity ALL winter long! 

We moved on to another kitchen activity, but this one we could eat! 
We made some AMAZING cookies! Recipe found here: Amazing Recipe

We ate these with just enough time to finish the drums. I'd probably put this in the Pinterest fail category. The process of making the drum was really fun, but it didn't really make any noise. If we did it again, maybe I'd throw some rice in it so it would be a maraca.

Our last craft was making the girls' picture board for their room. I've had the pictures printed off for quite a while, but we just haven't 'had the time'. Today, we did it! 

I feel like a post like this just screams that we had an amazing, craft filled, no fighting kind of day. That is somewhat true, but as every mom knows, that is really just about impossible. We definitely had our moments, especially when a large chunk of your day involves a 2 year old and paint....
With that said though, the girls are amazing. They love doing crafts, which I am so thankful for. I can't wait to see what we create this winter and in the years to come!

Last, seems a bit weird to already be in the third trimester, 
but here is me and Baby Girl #3 at 28.5 weeks.

  1. Emma teaching Lily is absolutely precious! I'm really sure I was NOT a big sister like that. Sweet girls.
