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.

Flying Saucer CD!
I hadn't cut the hole in the top of the container for the alien yet!
Day 3 of the week - The theme this week is Outer Space. The letters of the week are 0, P, p the number of the week is 13.
Project - Flying Saucer CD- This is the last formal day of our Space theme. Connor loved all of the Space stuff - especially the idea of Aliens, so I thought we would end our theme with a Flying Saucer. I've seen the idea for making a flying saucer out of CD's on numerous sites, but I "created" our own flying saucer with our left over and random materials and got to work. Directions: Glue 2 CD's together (shiny side facing out), glue milk cap onto bottom center, and applesauce container on the top center. Add foam shapes all over the flying saucer. Cut a hole in the top of the applesauce container for the alien! (You can use any materials you have lying around the house for this project!) Materials Needed - 2 CD's, 1 milk cap, 1 applesauce container, foam shapes, craft glue, scissors, Alien - optional!
Numbers - 13, one more, one fewer
