Our Day Of Crafting

Christmas decorations are coming down, and Valentines decorations are being made. I saw this craft idea and thought it would be fun for Ryken and I to do at home on Daddy's first day back to work after Christmas vacation.



Mama: peel papers off crayons

Ryken: eat breakfast & play with his trains



Mama: learned you can get a blister by sharpening crayons, and paper clips are great at de-clogging pencil sharpeners

Ryken: tried his hand at sharpening a crayon, then played with his tools and had some "iPad time"



Mama: set up shavings and sheet of wax paper

Ryken: had fun choosing colors and sprinkling them on the big sheet of wax paper.



Mama: ironed the shavings between 2 sheets of wax paper, sandwiched by printer paper

Ryken: watched Cars



Mama: cut and trace hearts onto waxed crayon paper

Ryken: eat pizza and refuse to sit on tushie



Mama: help Ryken cut out a heart, then cut the rest out while he "work by self"

Ryken: did a great job cutting a heart out, then decided he didn't like Mama's help so he cut the scraps into confetti



Mama: string hearts on thread and find a big stick

Ryken: hang hearts on stick



Mama: "Ryken, what do you think of our craft?!"

Ryken: "I want it down."



Mama: decides Ryken is right, needs to come down and find a new home

Ryken: jumps in bed instead of napping
