Pinterest Thursday-More Math!

26 Feb

We have been using quite a few math projects from Pinterest lately.  I know I shared some a few weeks ago, but here are a few more!  🙂

We did some review using these:

We played some games, too.
I created a larger version of this:

And, I printed and laminated the game boards through the number 5, and we have been practicing.  If you need some extra multiplication practice, this is a GREAT activity!

Card Monday-A Birthday Card

23 Feb

I have been loving all the watercoloring I have seen people doing on cards lately, so I thought I would give it a try!

I used painter’s tape to mask off the center of my watercolor paper, wet the paper, and then painted some Distress inks on top.  After it dried, I stamped some snowflakes on top using white ink.  When I pulled off the tape, I learned a valuable lesson-you definitely have to have the tape down VERY well.  The ink did leak out one side, so I ended up trimming down the watercolor on two sides so that it still looked good.  I stamped Happy Birthday on top in purple, and I was done!  I love the end result, and so cool that it is really a one layer card!  I will definitely be doing this again!

Kid’s Craft #123-Presents for Friends

20 Feb

The Girlio made a few presents for friends the other day:



I love the colors she used on that perler heart, and such fun drawing on the cards!  For the bracelet, she used a kit I won a long time ago that came with bracelets you could make and customize, and a circle punch to punch out paper.  She used some leftover Echo Park paper in a rainbow pattern, and wrote Bffs on the papers.  🙂
