Well, it has been a LONG week and weekend here at my house as we have been suffering the torrential rains and flooding in our town. The kids got sent home early from school last Wednesday and then had Thursday and Friday off. Now we have just gotten word that they will have Mon. and Tues. off as well since the roads are still not open and the middle school had severe flood damage. As a mom, I was relieved that they were home and safe and that we didn’t have any water problems in our rental house. But also as a mom, it has been hard to keep the kiddos occupied during all this time off – especially since we can’t go anywhere because of the flooding. Ugh.
Anyhoo… my little crafters have decided this wasn’t such a bad thing. Since mom has been crafting away, they wanted to join in the fun! One time, they came to me saying they were bored, so I told them of a challenge on a stamp company’s blog that they could play along with. The theme of the challenge was “animals’ – details here – and that you should use their stamps. Since we have some that they love to play with, it was easy. They were intrigued and here’s what Meghan (my 6-year-old) came up with.
Meghan loves the doggie stamps and had great fun designing the purple polka-dotted paper with the stripes – one for each dog – coloring and then punching them each out. I only helped cut the paper to fit the card and helped make the stripes straight – other than that, she did it completely!
What do you think?? Do you think she will win the challenge?? One never knows, but I think the fun is in the creating! 🙂
Hope you got to create something fun this weekend!
ps – I’ll be sharing some of her other creations soon as she was in crafting mode after finishing this one and kept on going!
