My blog features the activities and projects I do with my children. I have 3 children age 11, 7 and 4. I watch an infant, plus my 4 year old nephew! This blog highlights the activities/projects we create during the week. It also provides a way for me to organize all of the activities and projects we do, and it is a great way to share the projects/activities. I hope this blog will become a great resource and inspire creativity.

Egg Carton Elephants!
Egg Carton Elephants
Project- Egg Carton Elephants - I found this project on the website http://www.daniellesplace.com/html/ElephantCrafts.html The website provides wonderful directions and pictures. It even provided a template for the elephant head! This project really fit in nicely with our zoo/safari theme and it was really easy to do. I cut the shapes out of the egg carton and Connor and Lauren did the rest. They used pink chalk for the ears and googly eyes for the eyes. I helped with the hot gluing and the project was done! Materials needed - egg carton, hot glue or craft glue, googly eyes, pink chalk or pink crayon/marker.
The finished elephants!
