Creativity for Kids Craft Party

Today I hosted a craft party using a few different kits from Creativity for Kids at my friend's home. The girls had a fun time making necklaces, headbands and bracelets with the help of their moms. The kits provided us with everything we needed to make the crafts, even the scissors and glue. We started out making the Pop Art Necklaces and it ended up being the only things the girls, mostly around 6 years, could make on their own. It was a really fun morning crafting and hanging out with friends!

A big thank you to Heidi and Matilda for opening up their home for this fun morning! DISCLAIMER: I was given the product to host a craft party. These are my opinions and I received no monetary compensation for writing about the party.

A Sailor's Adventure

Liesl drew some pictures yesterday and started telling me the story as I was looking at them. I told her we should write the story down, she dictated and I typed. You can read it on her blog.

a busy friday

To end our week of fun we had our friends Ava and Maya over for the day. Our plans to meet some friends at the bay had to be changed because Ava and Maya forgot their swimsuits. I had everything packed for a day out so we went to Trolley Barn Park for a few hours. After the park we went over to The Children's Museum. It was not busy at all and the kids had fun! blog-78 blog-79 blog-80

The Lafayette Hotel

Today we met some friends at the Lafayette Hotel to swim in their pool. It is fun to play in the pool, have a drink and relax like you are on vacation. blog-70 blog-71 blog-72 blog-73
